Please review the new Powers Elementary School Dog Policy that is in effect. Thank you!
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.

Welcome! My name is Beth Schwartz, and I am the principal of Powers Elementary School. My teaching career began in special education. I was an intervention specialist with the Huron City Schools for five years. I then came to Amherst, where I taught special education at Nord Middle School for seven years. In August of 2011, I began serving as principal at Harris Elementary where I served for six amazing years. I love working at Powers and getting the chance to help our youngest students!
