A Message from Mrs. Garrison

Dear Powell Families,

We are looking forward to seeing all of our Powell Panthers during Materials Distribution next Wednesday and Thursday! We have put a lot of thought into the planning for distribution and hope it will be quick and seamless! Please see all of the details below.

We are happy to be able to provide RAZ Kids, Lexia, and Dreambox programs throughout part of the summer. Please continue to use them to help your child maintain their skills!


There are still a few spots open for morning announcements. Please sign up!

Sign Up Genius For Morning Announcements


If you will be moving between now and the start of the 20-21 school year, please contact our Registrar, Michelle Lutes, at mlutes@conroeisd.net. We want to ensure your child has a smooth transition to their next school.


Please register now if you have a child that will be entering kindergarten next fall. Early registration helps us determine the number of teachers we will need.

Enjoy your weekend,

Library Books and Chromebooks

Place library books and/or chromebooks in your trunk or back end so they can be picked up by the teacher who places your materials in your car.

Gifts for Teachers

If you wish to give an End of Year gift to your child's teacher, please place the gift in a paper bag with the Teacher's name printed on the outside of the bag. Place the gift in your trunk or back end so it can be picked up by the teacher who places your materials in your car and we will make sure to get it to them!

Lost and Found

We have done our best to look for names in lost and found items. If a name was found in an item of clothing, the item has been placed in your child's bag of supplies. All items that did not have a name will be placed in the front Powell parking lot for parents to look through after they pick up their supplies.

Procedures for Materials Distribution

1. Make a sign with your child's name (last, first) in bold letters

2. Hang the sign in your front windshield on the passenger side

3. Place any library books, chromebooks, or Teacher gifts in your trunk or back end

4. Come to Powell at the designated time listed above

5. Enter the front Powell driveway

6. Near the front door, a Powell employee will get your child's name from the sign in your windshield

7. You will be directed to the pick-up location

8. Unlock your doors or open your back hatch or trunk and your materials will be placed in the car and library books, chromebooks, and/or Teacher gifts will be taken out

9. If you have items that may be in the lost and found, check your bag. If they are not in your bag, the items could be on the rack in the front Powell parking lot.
