Message from the Principal
Powell Valley has always been known for our STEM focus. We have a space here that is called the Makers Space. It is a classroom full of exciting things that students can use to create and innovate!
We are in need of a parent volunteer(or two), preferably someone who has a tech, science, or art background. This person would work closely with the teachers here at PVES and help to organize the space and be a connection when the students are using the space.
If this sounds like something you would like to help us with please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
My thoughts are with those families who have been impacted by the recent news from Ukraine. If your student(s) need to process feelings regarding what is happening, please feel free to reach out to me.
We are continuing our lessons on ways to stay safe, to recognize when something is unsafe, to report anything unsafe to a trusted adult, and to refuse to participate. I urge students to talk to you as their parents/guardians to give them three contacts (information with phone numbers) of trusted adults who they can call when an emergency arises and they are without you. You play the most important role in helping your child stay safe.
Remember to contact 2-1-1 if you are in need of food, utility or housing assistance or check out their website https://www.211info.org/ to find out the latest information. Additional resources can be found here: GBSD Food Resources. If you receive SNAP benefits, please contact your local self-sufficiency office to inquire about assistance.
Kindergarten Registration Opened March 1st
If you have a child that will be 5 on or before September 1st please register now! If you have friends, family or neighbors in the Powell Valley district with upcoming fall kindergarteners please let them know registration is open! Please visit our website, click here http://powellvalley.gresham.k12.or.us
You will need access to your ParentVUE account and an email address to complete the registration process.
This week, February 28th to March 4th we are going to be having another book fair! Your students will be coming home with a flyer highlighting books that will be available.
In the meantime you can go to our book fair's website at https://www.scholastic.com/bf/powellvalleygradeschool1.
On the website you will be able to check out the digital flyer, shop online when the fair starts and access the eWallet option for the fair, a digital payment option that allows for adults to add money to an account for their student rather than having them use cash.
We look forward to sharing in the kids' excitement for this upcoming book fair!"
