If your child is currently enrolled at Powell, you do not need to register them for the 2018-2019 school year. They will automatically be enrolled in their next grade and there is no need to re-register for the bus they are currently taking. Please make sure you do reply to the online email questionnaire which will be emailed to you before school starts on August 15th. This email is the only way er can have current records regarding contacts and health information which is vital.
Clinic Happenings from Nurse Jean
Please encourage your children to wash their hands throughout the day, especially prior to eating and after using the restroom.
Friendly Reminders from Nurse Jean:
As a general rule, please routinely check your child for head lice and nits (lice eggs).

Glasses in the Lost & Found

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, Room Mom Liaison, Spirit Store Coordinator and Staff Appreciation Chairperson.
