Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning.            -Mr. Rogers


Welcome to Mrs. Powell's Owls!  A place where laughter, kindness, respect, and caring are encouraged and expected. This is a place where we read all kinds of books, experience math, science, rhyming, and more. We write, paint, sing, dance, exercise, count, add, make 2D and 3D shapes, and more. It is a place where a child can grow feeling loved and safe.
