  • UTK H.A.B.I.T. Reading Paws Program

    We are excited to be partnered with the UTK H.A.B.I.T. Reading Paws program to help improve student literacy and self esteem. This amazing program allows therapy dogs to visit classrooms where students are able to read to them. Permission forms are sent home before a dog will visit the classroom.

  • IMPORTANT CHANGES TO SCHOOL MEALS

    Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year at Powell Elementary, all students will need to pay for meals or complete the application on the Knox County website for Free and Reduced Lunch. Last year PES had received a grant which allowed all students free meals during the 2017-2018 school year but that grant was not renewed for 2018-2019. To apply online for free or reduced lunch for your child, click on the School Meals link to the left of this column or look under For Families along the top menu and select Everything Food. Applications will also be available in the office. You can find additional information on school meals at that site as well, such as pricing, online pre-payments, and more.
