    Greetings Powell Families,


    Thank you for your support on GivingTuesday!  We’re thrilled to share that Powell Elementary School received $4,370 through DonorsChoose on GivingTuesday.  This support will enhance STEM instruction and play-based learning for Powell students all year long.  Thank you for all you do for our students!

    2023-24 assignment notifications: Each year, Student Assignment prints and distributes assignment notifications that are sent home with students to notify families of a student’s school assignment for the next school year and the level of transportation the student is expected to receive. Be on the lookout for these coming home from Powell this Tuesday.
