because there is a sense of community and pride within our school community. Parents and family members are an important part of our school. At Powell Valley, we believe that children learn best when they are actively involved in their learning and when they use “real life” situations for problem solving. These skills are supported throughout the school with the integration of Lifeskills: Caring, Cooperation, Common Sense, Courage, Curiosity, Effort, Flexibility, Friendship, Initiative, Integrity, Sense of Humor, Organization, Patience, Perseverance, Pride, Problem Solving, Resourcefulness and Responsibility.
