  • Principal's Pen

    I am excited to welcome each of you to Pocahontas Elementary School and Powhatan County Schools.  Pocahontas Elementary School is  celebrating its 22nd anniversary this year and the custodial crew has worked hard this summer to prepare of our students and staff.

    Pocahontas is a pre-kindergarten through 5th grade elementary school with about 730 students.  We also host and additional 18 Head Start students as part of the division's efforts to support all learners at a young age.  

    There are few updates to our practices and policies this year.  Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our updated Students Rights and Responsibilities which has some changes regarding our attendance policy.  Please review carefully  the Students' Rights and Responsibilities which replaces (The Student Code of Conduct)and check out our updated Student Handbook.

    Pocahontas is committed to meeting the needs of our learners through our strong instructional practices and dedicated teachers and staff.  We believe that every child can learn and grow, and we will work to build relationships with the students along the way.  It is our belief that growth can  manifest itself in many ways from academics, to behavior, to social growth.  We appreciate your support!

    As you know, Powhatan prides itself on being a family-oriented school and community.  As you walk through the halls, fully expect you will get a sense of warmth and nurturing towards all learners.

    I encourage you to participate fully in our school community and look forward meeting all of our new families on August 30 at our orientations.

    I hope everyone enjoys the next few weeks as we gear up for school and leaning on September 4th.
