Superintendent's Corner

January 4, 2022

Dear Powell Township School Community,

Happy New Year! The students and staff of the Powell Township School are happy to be back in school after winter break. However, with the growing concerns about the rapid spread of the new Covid Omicron variant, please keep your children home if they are sick in any way. We were able to maintain in-person school during the first half of the school year and hope that we can do the same throughout the second half as well. Please help us do that by keeping sick kids home and avoiding others while sick.

All of our school ice skates have been freshly sharpened thanks to the generosity of Superior Hockey, LLC in Marquette. However, we are still in need of more ice skates and helmets to outfit all of our students. If you are interested in donating new or gently used sharpened ice skates or helmets, please drop them off at the school office. Mr. Mattson got our ice rink started yesterday so we should be ice skating soon. Our snowshoes and cross country skis are ready for action as well. We look forward to an active winter enjoying the beautiful world around us.

Sincerely,

Michelle Gill

Superintendent / Principal
