Welcome to the West Powellhurst website! My name is Allen Browning, and I am honored to be the principal at such an outstanding school. The entire teaching and support staff at West Powellhurst hopes you find this site a useful tool for you and your family.
At West Powellhurst we strive to instill three basic expectations in all of our students: Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful. Following these basic principles will create a path for our students in becoming positive and productive citizens in our community.
I encourage all parents to become involved with their child’s education. We welcome parents to volunteer in classrooms and contribute time to the West Powellhurst Boosters organization. Please come to learn how you can support West Powellhurst. I am committed to the continual improvement of education for our students. I ask you to join me in a partnership that will guide all of our students to reach their full potential.
There is a one-time $20 supply fee per child. This fee is for consumable supplies that will be used throughout the year. It replaces the usual supply list.
Please DO NOT purchase any supplies or send any supplies from home. Your child’s teacher will purchase supplies over the summer. This fee is NOT optional.
A community supply method will be used. There are many benefits to this method for the parent, child, and classroom teacher. It will save parents money because we are able to buy in bulk, allowing us to purchase a larger variety and better quality of supplies. Students feel more equality because all supplies are the same color, style, size, etc. Students also learn many social skills from sharing supplies. By purchasing supplies over the summer, our classrooms are set up and ready for the first day of school with the supplies that are needed.
Please send the supply fee with your child on the first day of school. It is helpful to put it in an envelope with your child’s first and last name on the front.
If there are circumstances that create a hardship in paying the fee, please see your child's counselor or principal.
