A Note From Mrs. Garrison

Last year, our PTO fundraising helped to provide field trip admissions and transportation, 3rd and 4th grade inline skating, classroom technology updates, maintainance of the playground structures, online math and language arts enrichment programs, the Powell Panther Yearbook publication and more. Please consider participating in our fundraiser this year to help support the work of our PTO as they support our school.
