Greetings Powell Families!


Science Olympiad Tournament Results: Congratulations to the Powell Science Olympiad Teams who did an awesome job at the tournament yesterday. Our varsity team placed 7th place out of 25 teams. Our students represented Powell very well and came home with 12 individual metals.  Two of our varsity events placed 1st place.  Woohoo! Thank you to Mrs. Poisson and Mrs. Dove, our Science Olympiad coaches.  Your leadership and coaching propelled our awesome teams to be the best that they could be in the competition. Thank you to the parents who volunteered their time the last few months and yesterday to support our team. Way to go Team!

100th Day of School: Tomorrow, Monday, 2/12/24 is the 100th day of school!


PTA Krispy Kreme Fundraiser: The Powell PTA is kicking off a spirit "night" for the month of February. For every digital dozen sold, the Powell PTA receives 50% of the proceeds. These digital dozens can be used at over 370 locations across the U.S. Dough us a favor and order yours here.


A Visiting Artist Needs Your Help! Local artist, Leni Newell, will be visiting Powell this week.  She will be working with the fifth graders to create original fabric batiks.  We are still in need of PARENT VOLUNTEERS to help out during the workshops.  Please sign up here, if you are willing and able to come help the kids with their creations.  We could use help from parents from any grade level, not just 5th.  Leni loves repeat volunteers, so don't hesitate to sign up for more than one slot if you are available.   


We are also looking for NEWSPAPER DONATIONS for the project.  Please send newspapers to Ms. Ali!


Yearbook: Still need to order your yearbook? You can place your order here.  Have yearbook questions? Email powellptayearbook@gmail.com


Career Day - We are excited for our students to participate in Career Day on Friday, 04/12/24. To have a successful career day, we will need lots of volunteers from many different careers. Please see the flier that came home this past week.  If you are interested in volunteering to be a speaker, please mark your calendar for the morning of 04/12/24. 

Have a great  week!
