Powells Lane School students are learning the skills necessary to progress into the next century. Each year they have a Career Day program, in which guest presenters from various field conduct workshops with our students. Children are afforded the opportunity to see the link between school and the work world. Numerous multicultural programs linked to community service organizations provide students with a greater awareness and broader perspective of the world around them. Language Arts, students have a wide range of opportunities to learn about literacy in a way that promotes reading, writing, speaking and listening in their daily lives.
Teachers use a variety of appropriate, appealing and substantive literature and non-fiction books to involve students with reading. Mathematics, students participate in hands-on learning experiences that foster curiosity, basic mathematics skills and beginning problem-solving strategies. Key to this is providing ample opportunities for students to explore, use manipulative and practice, which enables students to begin the transition from concrete mathematical thinking to abstract thinking.
