Greetings Powell Families!


Marbles Family Playdate is this Thursday!

  • Nov 16 5-8PM
  • RSVP here
  • Free admission for Powell students and their immediate family members


Race for Education - We are almost there! We have raised $21,917 (87%) towards our goal of $25,000. The Race for Coins was such a success, it will be continued this week. It is helpful to send your pennies and silver coins sorted in two different bags. Grade levels earn a point for each penny in their own jar.  Silver coins and bills count as negative points in the grade level they are placed in. 


Fall Picture Makeup Day - 11/14/23


PTA Board Meeting - 11/14/23 at 7:00 PM


Notes of Gratitude - During the month of November, Powell staff and students are reflecting on what we are grateful for. We would love to hear from our families about what you are grateful for at Powell Center for Play and Ingenuity Magnet Elementary School. Please take a brief moment to express your gratitude to our amazing staff on this short Google Form. Your words of appreciation make a great impact on our climate and culture.  Thank you!


American Indian Heritage Month - We are excited to celebrate November as National American Indian Heritage Month! This month provides the opportunity to honor and celebrate the history and heritage of American Indians. North Carolina is home to eight state-recognized Indian tribes: the Coharie, the Eastern Band of Cherokee, the Haliwa-Saponi, the Lumbee, the Meherrin, the Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation, the Sappony, and the Waccamaw-Siouan.

Have a great  week!
