Note from Mrs. Garrison
Please join us for Donuts with Dudes on Friday, September 21 from 7:15am to 8:00am. Students can bring their favorite Dude with them to enjoy a donut, coffee and juice in our Gym. To ensure that we have enough donuts to serve everyone that attends, we recommend that your student eat a small breakfast at home that morning, since we will only be serving one donut per person. Wear your favorite team shirt to our Soccer World Cup themed event. We cannot wait to see you there.
We kicked off the Positivity Project on Monday, September 10th! Students in all classes enjoyedÂ learning about the Other People Matter Mindset. Next week, students will learn about the character strength Curiosity. Please see the attached Character Card for more information. We look forward to recognizing our students who are curious!
On Monday, September 17, we will have our first monthly spirit event at Grub Burger on Research Forest and Lakeside Blvd. Come enjoy dinner with the family and meet other Powell families. 20% of all proceeds come back to the school. Bring the flyer that is coming home with your child or just mention to the cashier that you are with Powell. Hope to see you there!
