Clinic Happenings from Nurse Jean
As a general rule, please check your child for lice and nits (lice eggs) frequently.
If your child is ill, please keep your student home. It is district policy that students must be fever free (less than 100.0) for 24 hours without the aid of Tylenol or Motrin prior to returning to school. Students must also be free from vomiting and/or diarrhea for 24 hours AND be able to hold down a full meal before returning to school.
Federal Report Card
Our 2016-2017 Federal Report Card has been posted on our school’s web page.
Glasses in the Lost & Found
There are 10 pair of prescription eyeglasses that have been turned in to the lost and found this year. If your child has lost a pair of glasses, please visit the front office to claim them.
The Powell PTO is in dire need of volunteers like you to help make the year and next year a success. There are many ways to help throughout the year – big and small! Signing up does not commit you to anything. You will be added to our volunteer database where you will learn about the various ways you can help throughout the year.
Please remember to complete the Volunteer Background Check at the bottom of the page to be able to volunteer at our school!
PTO has the following positions available this year: VP of Membership, Carnival Co-Chairs, Silent Auction Chairperson, Room Mom Liaison, Spirit Store Coordinator and Staff Appreciation Chairperson.
Volunteer Background Check
All volunteers in our school must complete the CISD Volunteer Background Check. This includes classroom readers, party volunteers, field trip chaperones and event volunteers. You can complete the free background check here.
Please sign up for a Parent Access account (PAC) if you have not done so already. This account will allow you to receive announcements, newsletters, safety information, absence and tardy notifications and other important updates. Throughout the year, you can log in to view grades, report cards, discipline records, cafeteria accounts and STAAR scores. If you registered for an account last year, you will not need to re-register for an account this year.
College Park Softball Camp
There will be a softball camp at College Park High School June 18-20. The camp is $90 and will provide comprehensive instruction on the fundamentals of softball with an emphasis on execution. All skills will be taught at a level that will assist the student in becoming a better softball player. See the attached flyer for more information.
College Park Cheer Clinic
The College Park High School Cheerleaders are holding a spring skills clinic for any 5th – 8th grader looking to improve their cheer skills for tryouts. The clinic will be held February 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Registration is possible the day of the clinic.
Headed to Mitchell Intermediate next year? The Mitchell PTO is currently filling positions for next year. Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the school and meet parents from the other three feeder schools. For more information, please read the attached document.
College Park Softball
College Park Softball will be having a “Futures Night” on 3/2. Any future CP softball players can come out to the game for free and be recognized on the field with the players. They will be allowed to stand with the players during the national anthem and one player will get to throughout the first pitch. The player will need to be at the field by 5:30 and we would love for them to wear their uniforms. If you need any more information please contact the head coach Jeremy Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to problems with our online school calendar, we are including a list of upcoming events.
