Powel Home and School Association

Who are we?

The Powel Home and School Association (the HSA) is a group of dedicated volunteers — parents, grandparents, family members, and friends alongside teachers and administrators — committed to enhancing the education of our students and promoting a sense of community at Samuel Powel Elementary School.

What do we do?

The HSA supports the Powel School in a variety of ways. HSA members volunteer in classrooms, serve on committees, participate in school-wide clean-up days, offer assistance to teachers and staff, donate goods, manage fundraisers, and support staff and teachers in the mission of Powel School. You can get involved:
