Greetings Powell Families!


SSA Test Request Window Open:  (April 1-12, 2024) Single-Subject Acceleration (SSA) allows students to skip a grade level of content in either English Language Arts or Mathematics.  All students (K-5) are eligible to test in one subject.  To learn more about SSA, watch the Bages with Brower replay and visit this website.  


Powell Pawlooza: Powell Pawlooza, our community-wide Spring Carnival is happening this Friday, April 12 from 5:00 - 7:30 PM. Wristbands for the event can be purchased here for the suggested donation of $5 per person. Wristbands include unlimited access to bounce houses, crafts, face painting, games, and dinner combos.  Dinner combos include: hot dog or slice of cheese pizza, chips or fruit.  


Please check out the volunteer slots and consider signing up. This is a great opportunity for Middle School and High School students to earn volunteer service hours. It is a fun event for our students but it cannot run smoothly without the help of many volunteers. Our PTA thanks you in advance! 


Panorama Survey: Helping students do their best in school requires a team effort. Parents, students, and schools all play important roles in this process. Help us make your child’s school experience as positive and beneficial as possible by giving honest, thoughtful responses to the questions in our family survey from tomorrow April 8 - May 17. Be sure to complete a separate survey for each school your children attend.
