Kodiak of the Month

As a community, the staff, students, and parents of H. Clarke Powers School strive to exhibit the characteristics of the Learner Profile attributes. In addition, each month at our Kodiak of the Month assemblies, we recognize a student from each classroom that has gone above and beyond to exemplify the Learner Profile characteristic for the month.
