Incoming 7th & 8th Graders

Welcome, and we are excited to have your student attend Powell Middle School next year!  Please read the information below carefully and please take part in all activities to help you and your student learn more about our school.    

Schedule Pick Up and Student Pictures - Friday, August 9th, from 9:00 - noon & 1:00-3:00 pm.  Come to school to pick up your student's schedule and daily planner.  Your student will also have their school picture taken at this time

Pride Activity Day - Monday, August 12th, 9:00-10:30. This is our new student orientation program that pairs 8th Grade Pride Leaders with new students. It includes games and activities that take place on the football field designed to orient and begin the process of meeting new students. We encourage all new students to attend. Students have the opportunity to see the Powell Staff and begin to familiarize themselves with the building and the location of their classes.

First Day of School - Tuesday, August 13th, 10:20 - 3:50 pm. 6th graders begin their first day of middle school 2 hours before our 7th and 8th-grade classes.  This affords them an opportunity to navigate the building initially with fewer students.   

Back to School Night - Thursday, August 22nd
