A Note From Mrs. Garrison

Thank you to the Powell PTO and the volunteers who provided lunch for the Powell teachers and staff. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

We have had an overwhelming response to our request for volunteers for the Annual Interfaith Holiday Food Drive and first-ever PTO Holiday Jingle Jam. We still have a few slots to fill and would love to have you join us for this fun event. Please check the Sign Up Genius below for times. We could really use your help!
