How to Contact Powell

Will your child be absent from school or need to make a transportation change?

Please make sure to send an email to ContactPowell@ConroeISD.net. Any other email address (such as the teacher's or Registrar's) may be missed! That individual might be out of school for the day, and it will never be acknowledged.

The ContactPowell email address is monitored throughout the day by staff and is the best way to reach us. Also, we cannot take transportation changes over the phone - they must be done in person or by email with your Photo ID attached to that email for security reasons.

If your child is absent, you can send an additional email to the teacher to see about make up work, but it cannot replace contacting us at the Contact Powell email or by calling our front office line at 936-709-1700.

PTO News


Get a head start on the CISD background check for a smooth check-in process at Powell! (https://apps.conroeisd.net/volunteer/) The background check will allow you to enter Powell Campus during our events, volunteer opportunities, and get togethers.

The incentive for joining PTO this year will be a color changing cup and straw with our Powell Panther logo on it. So you can slurp up some of your favorite drink while looking cool!

This year our Fundraising team is partnering up with Mabels Labels to help out our PTO and your Panther. Labeling items such are jackets, shoes, water bottles, and lunchboxes will ensure these items make it back to your panther and not into Lost & Found. Go to campaigns.mabelslabels.com and search for Powell Elementary PTO.
