Note from Mrs. Garrison: Thank you for all of you support during our Boosterthon. We met our fundraising goal and had incredible support during our Fun Run! Please remember to turn in your pledge money by Monday. Have a fun and safe weekend!
Attendance: We have many students missing school for various reasons including falling ill due to the continual change in temperatures. We ask that all families work to have their kids at school each and every day. It makes a tremendous difference in their performance in each class. We want all of our students to be successful and attendance is the number one indicator of success.
Please help your child and everyone at the school by being here each day. We will be closely monitoring your child’s attendance, and letters will be sent to parents if your child’s absences begin to accumulate.
Thank you for your help on this important matter.
From the Counselor: Today our students watched Oskar and the Big bully Battle: Part 2, an Alley Theatre presentation. The main character is ten year old Oskar that is determined to wipe out bullying in his school. Our goal is to keep our students educated about bullying in order to promote a happy, healthy learning environment.

Youth Art Month: In order to celebrate Art Education and the fine work produced by the Conroe Independent School District visual art students, the art teachers of our district are hosting a student exhibit at all three of the Montgomery County Libraries. We are thrilled to announce that Logan O’Brien (3rd – Anderson), Anais Gonzales-Nagels (3rd – Anderson), Jack Tresaugue (3rd – Falast) and Neha Nair (4th – Beach) have artwork that has been chosen to be part of this year’s Youth Art Month Student Exhibit at the Mitchell Public Library from March 4th through March 30th.
Please feel free to drop in during regular business hours to view the show. We are so proud of our Powell Panthers and all of the efforts they put into their work!
Clinic Happenings from Nurse Jean:
Illness we have seen this week: Strep Throat – with/without sore throat, with/without fever, with/without nausea. General Allergy Symptoms – without fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, headache
Friendly Reminders from Nurse Jean: As a general rule, it is always a good idea to routinely check your child for lice and nits (lice eggs). It’s also a good idea to remind your child not to share hats, combs, or brushes with friends. This applies to after school activities as well.
Please do not hesitate to call the clinic if you have any questions. Our direct number is 936-709-1709.
Parent Access:Â Stay Â informed of your child’s grades and plan ahead to view your child’s STAAR scores. STAAR scores will only be accessible through Parent Access.
