    Greetings Powell Families,


    Wow! It is hard to believe that the 2021-2022 school year is coming to an end. We appreciate your partnership this year and the support that you have provided to your children. This week is a busy week at Powell. I hope to see you at one of the events happening, as we close out our school year.
