Silent Partners Needed!
Would you be willing to help a Powhatan student in need? Powhatan Elementary School’s Silent Partner Program helps students whose families are experiencing financial hardship. The average donation request runs from $10 - $20, and you will only be asked to assist once this school year. The program will provide for a variety of needs for Powhatan Elementary children. Some examples from past years include:
- School supplies
- Field Trip cost
- Short term lunch money
- Family emergencies
- Snacks and/or meals
We will compose a list of volunteers who are willing to help and as needs arise, we will contact you to see if you are able to assist at that time. As always, both the sponsor and the recipient are kept anonymous. The link to sign up is below. Thank you for your assistance.
*See the link to the left to complete a form to sign up to help. Or, if you need help there is a sign up form for that purpose too in this Virtual Classroom.
Social Emotional Learning is our target theme this year for the schoolwide Counseling Program. See lessons linked in the Social Emotional Virtual Classroom link to the left.
As we anticipate a return to a normal school year in 2021-2022, with our students participating in face-to-face instruction five days a week, we are offering an exciting new opportunity for families. In the fall of 2021 we will open a new school, the JCPS Virtual Academy, for any student interested in grades K-12.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
Johnston County Public Schools has updated its plan to mark senior milestones, including prom and graduation while adhering to guidance from the Johnston County Public Health Department and the CDC in regards to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
