Please save the date for Friday, September 21st and Donuts with Dudes from 7:15am to 8:00am. Students can bring their favorite Dude with them to enjoy a donut, coffee and juice in our Gym. Wear your favorite soccer team shirt to our Soccer World Cup themed event. We cannot wait to see you there.

Positivity Project

We are excited to begin daily lessons with the Positivity Project on Monday. This is a character strengths program that focuses on 24 strengths throughout the year. Students will have a short character lesson each day led by their homeroom teacher. A different trait will be focused on each week. Students will be recognized when they exhibit a character strength by signing their name on our Positivity Project banners. See the attached letter for more information.

Counselors Corner

Our Fall Community Outreach Workshop will be Flipping the Switch on Anxiety by Kelly Locke LPC/Mental Health Specialist. It is offered by CISD Guidance & Counseling on September 25, 2018 9:00-10:30 am at Deretchin K-6 School. The address is 11000 Merit Oaks Drive.

Library Volunteers

We had a WONDERFUL group of volunteers in the library last year, and we are excited about having another great year of help and support. Volunteers are essential to our library program because our librarian works alone without an aide. If you would like to volunteer in the Powell library, please fill out the online form at the following link.
