Monday Morning Gathering:

Connection is what keeps a community together and Powhatan has many traditions that provide opportunities to reach out to each other and show that we care. Monday Morning Gathering is one of those traditions. It brings us all together each week to recognize accomplishments, be inspired by our pillars of learning, and start the week together on a positive note. Although we can’t physically be together during our distance learning time, it is still important for us to start our week together. By continuing to provide continuity to our school year, it will remind everyone that we although we are apart, we are still here for each other. We are still the Powhatan Community.

A Reminder:

A reminder that the Governor of Virginia has closed all schools until the end of this school year, therefore Powhatan’s physical campus is closed through June 10, 2020.
