A Note From Mrs. Mathe

WOW! Powell families I am humbled by your generosity and support with our Boosterthon fundraiser so far! We are about half way through the program and everyone on campus is having a great time learning about the character traits and working as a team to meet our goals.


Remote families, there was an email sent earlier this week with information regarding opportunities for your remote child to participate in the Boosterthon Dance-a-thon. If you plan for your child to attend on April 1st, make sure to RSVP by Tuesday. More information regarding this can be found in your email.


This weekend is a great time to get a donation because there’s special challenge for families! Your student can earn a bonus prize by getting a $2 Per Dance Minute or a $60 flat donation this weekend only. Check out funrun.com for details.


Lastly, next week is a 4 day school week. Friday, April 2nd is a school holiday.
