Election Day: Powell Elementary is a polling place for Election Day, November 8th. On that day we are expecting a large amount of voter traffic. Parents, on Election Day we ask that you refrain from coming to join your child at school for lunch and avoid late arrivals and early checkouts if possible. Our priority is student safety; therefore we feel it is our responsibility to minimize traffic in our classroom areas. As always, if your child is celebrating a birthday please let us know so that we can make accommodations.


Daylight Savings Time: Do not forget to set your clocks back an hour before bed Saturday night! Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning.


Kendra Scott Fundraiser: Join us Thursday, November 10 for a Spirit Night at Kendra Scott on Market Street and get a head start on holiday shopping! Enjoy sips, sweets and jewels from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and 20% of all sales benefit Powell Elementary. Phone in orders are accepted as long as you mention it is for the Powell Elementary fundraiser.
