Mrs. Mathe's Message
Happy New Year Panthers! We were excited to see everyone this week and meet some new friends as well!
The spring semester of school is upon us. The spring semester always seems to fly by as we have many opportunities for memories to be made and fun campus activities planned. In 4 weeks we will host one of my favorite events of the year, Boosterthon Fun Run. Each week, leading up to the run, we will share information regarding our main fundraiser for the year. I hope you are getting excited! It is going to be a blast!
We are excited to kick off our Powell Panther Fun Run on 02/02/2023. Our goal is to raise $47,000 for field trips, technology, and teacher incentives and to strengthen our school community.
Our school has always relied on fundraising to provide exceptional opportunities to enhance student learning and we need YOUR HELP registering your student(s) and sharing with friends and family.
