Welcome to a new school year! I am very excited to continue serving the Powell Valley community as the principal and have already had the opportunity to work with several staff members, families, and community members to prepare our school for students. I want to thank everyone who participated in the Community Clean Up day! In partnership with Cornerstone Church, we had more than 60 volunteers pruning, weeding, power washing, edging, spreading bark along our new walking trail and working together to make our school look its best! Community support helps strengthen our schools, and in turn strong schools strengthen the community; I feel honored to be part of such a strong and positive community!
I believe that we, as educators and parents, have the awesome responsibility of working together as a community and with integrity, to create an inclusive environment that ensures every student is prepared for success! As we begin the new school year, the staff of Powell Valley look forward to working in partnership with you on behalf of the children! We are committed to providing highly effective instruction that leads to strong student learning and growth. This year we will continue to innovate our instructional programs to include STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math), through Inquiry and Project-Based Learning, as well as our new Makerspace classroom. We are looking forward to another fantastic school year with your children!
