    Hello Powell Students and Families,

    We are excited to welcome our students back on campus. We hope that summer was well spent and that our students are rested & ready to learn. Let me start off by giving a shout out to Mrs. Stevens, Mr. Jones, and our Summer SEAL staff. They spent the first weeks of summer with our kiddos providing enrichment, as well as some fun. Summer at Powell was also spent completing the solar construction on our blacktop, our students will now have full access to the playground, as well as shade covering.

    Following summer adventures, it was time to get back to work in early August. The first few weeks back was spent in district trainings and meetings to help set the course for the year. As a district we will continue to deepen our work in equity & excellence, providing all students with what they need to be successful in and out of the classroom. We will examine this more at Powell throughout the year as we continue to work towards providing an environment of equity & excellence for ALL of our students and our community.

    Students will come home with an information packet on the first day of school, but please make sure that your ParentVue is activated and that you are receiving school and district messages via School Messenger. There are instructions for ParentVue and School Messenger on our school website and in the community newsletter, which is sent out each month. The first community newsletter will be sent out on August 30th, but Parents/Guardians will be able to view your student’s teacher and/or class schedule in ParentVue beginning on Monday, August 29th. Please note that the first day of school, August 31st, is a minimum day and school will be dismissed at 2:00. Details about school logistics will be sent out in the Community Newsletter on August 30th.  Lastly, our Powell family is growing & changing, I would like to welcome our new staff members: Jamal Richardson (Assistant Principal), Ife Aladiume (Science), Chris Washington (PE), Devon Burke (Art), Janssen Chavarria (Math), Kayla Hughes (Psychologist), Andre Johnson (RSP), Karen Rodecki (ELA), Prince Ross (Custodian), Alicia Rubio (Music), Rachel Worthington (CCR), Leah Ramirez (Social Worker), Tessa Rutter (Roving Sub), Sandy Luna (LTS). We look forward to seeing all of you soon.
