Excellence for Every Child
The Powell Elementary School office will be open each Wednesday during the summer starting on June 5th. Office hours on Wednesday mornings are from 9 a.m. to noon. If you wish to enroll a student, you may pick up an enrollment packet in the school office. You will need to supply a copy of your student's birth certificate, social security card, immunization record, physical, and proof of address. The office staff will help you with this process if you have questions.
I-Ready accounts will be available this summer until June 30th. The summer I-Ready Challenge is on! Are you in the game? Between May 26-June 30th, fill out your TRACKING SHEET(found here by clicking on the ORANGE HEADING above) to earn rewards when school starts again. After June 30th, students will not be able to access their account until school begins again and accounts are re-enrolled.
Check out our mayor's Read City USA link at the right of this webpage. You can get your child involved this summer through the Knox County Public Library. Even if you can't make it to the library, there's a huge selection of TUMBLEBOOKS available at your fingertips. These books can be read online (without checking out through the library) and a lot of these books have an audio version for young readers. Scroll to the bottom of the Read City USA website and click on Tumblebooks to explore the collection this summer. Help your student become a better reader with this free online resource!
If you are looking for something for your kiddos to do, encourage them to read a book! The directions to access the KCS eBook platform, MackinVIA! EBooks, can be found here by clicking on the orange heading above. These Ebooks work just like regular library books, but in a digital environment. When you log in, you can search and browse for available titles, and when you find something you like, you can check it out in just a few clicks.
