Incoming 6th Graders

Due to school closures, most of our transition events have been canceled. However, you will find the information below helpful in place of our traditional in-person events.

Incoming 6th Grade Parent Orientation - Thursday, April 2nd   CANCELED

  • Please watch this video and follow along with this slideshow to learn more about starting 6th grade at Powell in place of the canceled event.

6th Grade Exploratory Form 

  • Please fill out this form to identify if your student is interested in taking Band, Orchestra, and/or Spanish.  This form replaces the blue cards that were handed out at elementary visits.  You do not need to turn those cards in, please fill out the electronic form instead.

Music Instrument Screening - Wednesday, April 8th, 6:00 - 7:30 pm  CANCELED

  • Students interested in taking Band or Orchestra are encouraged to go ahead and select the class on the Exploratory form.  For students who do not know their instrument yet, they will have an opportunity to choose during the first two weeks of school.
  • For questions contact Mr. Eilert at deilert[at]lps.k12.co[dot]us.

Math Placement 

  • A math assessment will be offered in early August and is intended only for students coming from schools outside of LPS who want to be considered for acceleration in Math.  If you know your student's math placement is regular 6th-grade math, then it is not necessary for your student to take the math assessment.  More information to follow.

Pride Day - Wednesday, August 12th, 9:00 am - 11:00 am  

  • This is our new student orientation program that pairs 8th grade Pride Leaders with new students.  It consists of fun games and activities that take place on our football field and are designed to orient and begin the process of meeting other new students.  We encourage all new students to attend this event.
