A Note from Mrs. Mathe

We will start with some exciting news, our school shirts are in! If you ordered Powell shirts, they should come home today with your child. If you have a concern with your order please email contactpowell@conroeisd.net so we can look into your concern.

Next Friday, during lunches, we will be recognizing students for reaching reading, math and character trait goals. This new celebration has been established in order to recognize students for reaching personal academic goals as well a way to recognize students for displaying positive character traits. Our administrative team will call the recipients to the stage during the last 15 minutes of lunch to celebrate. Pictures of the award winners will be posted in the Powell Publisher. We are excited to celebrate the hard work of our amazing students!

Conroe Independent School District's Read for a Better Life initiative kicks off next week on September 22. The purpose of this program is to encourage reading aloud to students in the CISD community. At Powell we will celebrate this day with guest readers (via video) from The Woodlands College Park High School. Many of our staff members will also go into classrooms to read their favorite picture book to students. We encourage you to spend time with your child reading a good book not only next week, but nightly. Children build relationships and learn many positive reading behaviors just by having an adult read to them. Click the link below for more information and online resources.
