Powers Elementary School

The major goals of our school are to help students become proficient readers, selfdisciplined and self-directed in problem solving tasks by developing a curiosity and a desire to use learning for personal enjoyment. The learning climate created by the cooperative efforts of students, teachers, and parents shall provide opportunities for social, physical and academic growth.

The staff of Powers School also recognizes the need to help all students develop a sense of responsibility, self-worth and respect. We are concerned that each student develop the skills necessary to become a well-rounded, independent learner, able to work in a responsible and cooperative manner.

We acknowledge the power we as educators have over the lives of children and recognize parents as partners in their child’s education. We hope to use our energies cooperatively to nurture children.

We hope each child goes home each day having learned something new and feeling good about his or her day with us.

The building is open to students at 8:10 a.m. Our school day begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. Car riders are dismissed at 3:15 p.m., and bus riders begin boarding buses at 3:30 p.m.
