Welcome to Powel Elementary!

“A small school, with GREAT expectations!”

Samuel Powel is a wonderful Kindergarten to Fourth Grade school in Powelton Village, the heart of University City.  We are one of many West Philadelphia’s public elementary schools.

Spelling Bee

Thank you to Mr. Strickland for organizing the 2nd Annual Spelling Bee. Congratulations to Rachit. K. and all our contestants. Not only does it take wisdom to do this but bravery too. It is not easy to compete in front of families and friends. We are so proud of all of you and glad you shared your knowledge.

Black History Month Celebration:

February allowed us additional time to focus of those who have come before us, have paved our way and are shaping our future. Student presentations allowed them time to shine and share their learning. Thank you for all who could attend and here are some pictures for those who could not.
