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.

Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
