A Note From Mrs. Mathe

It has been another great week at Powell. Did you know January is school board appreciation month? In honor of our CISD school board's amazing leadership, we have donated a book in each member's name to the Powell school library. Each book is noted with a dedication sticker on the inside cover. Be sure to keep an eye out for this in your child's library books. The books are just a small token of appreciation for our amazing school board!
