Seniors:  Please remember to let the counseling office know about any scholarships that you receive by the Monday, May 11th deadline.  We need the name of the scholarship and the monetary amount that has been awarded to you.  If the counseling office does not receive this scholarship information from you by the May 11th deadline, then your scholarships will not be included in the graduation edition of the Powell Tribune.  Here is the link for the May 6, 2020 Senior Info Day:

Seniors:  The link below will take you to the senior exit survey that is required of all seniors regardless of their post-secondary pursuits. You will use your SCHOOL EMAIL to access and this will send you a “survey receipt” to your email. Should you need to update your survey at any time, you will use that receipt to access your answers. DO NOT just re-fill out the survey or it will double our responses and we wouldn’t want to miss newly reported scholarships etc. You will not be able to “check out” for graduation until this survey step is completed. I  highly encourage you to do this as soon as possible so it does not get forgotten. Also, we will use this information to report to the Powell Tribune all of the scholarships and awards, so be very careful to report everything!  Thank you for promptly completing this survey! Should take just a few minutes to complete, and can always be updated.

Juniors and Sophomores:  Are you ENTHUSIASTIC?  OUTGOING?  DEPENDABLE?  Have we got an opportunity for you!! We are looking for students to serve as ignition mentors for the incoming freshman class of 2024 in the fall.  We will be implementing the IGNITION program again, which will involve an adventure course, monthly group activities, and opportunities for you to develop your leadership skills.  Please see the attached Ignition Mentor job description for more information about the program. If you are interested in being a mentor, please fill out the attached Ignition Mentor Application and email it to the counseling office by May 15th.    The application is in Microsoft word so that you can complete the application on your computer and then email it back to the counseling office.  Paper copies of the Ignition Mentor applications can be picked up and returned to the “counseling office box” located on the table in front of the high school daily between the hours of 8 am to 3:30 pm.  If you have any questions, please email the counseling office or call the high school at 764-6181.

Seniors:  If you are planning to attend UW in the fall, here is information from UW admissions that we wanted to pass along to you:

I want to provide some updates:

  1. UW Signing Days – Will go virtual and we will not be travelling to your schools.  Students will receive a UW Signing Day packet in the mail this month.  This is one of our favorite events so will miss seeing all of you. 
  2. May 1 – Enrollment Deposit deadline has been extended to June 1.  High school seniors must fill out a short request prior to May 1 to get an extension. The request should only take a minute to fill out and can be found at:
  3. Enrollment Deposit – If a student has a financial hardship and needs a reduction from $300 to $100, please have them email [email protected].
  4. Virtual admissions sessions – Available for any student who wants to learn more about UW and next steps.  These are being offered Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Student can sign up for a session by going to and clicking on the *** NEW Virtual Zoom Admissions Session*** link.
  5. S/U grading – If your grading scale changes, we will honor the grading scale from each of your schools.  (If a student received a grade of “U”, that course will not meet curriculum requirements).
  6. ACT/SAT exams – If your high school senior was registered for an ACT/SAT exam in April, we will honor those test scores when they take them in June.  The student does need to provide us with documentation they were initially registered for the April test (the email notifying them their April test was cancelled will work).

I know our routines have been turned upside down.  Please know, UW Admissions is here to help your students and you.  Contact us anytime.

Keep checking your email accounts for up to date information and the counseling office will pass on any information that we receive.

NWC will be holding Powell High School NWC Registration Day on Monday, May 4th. Monday, April 20th Kendle will be sending out this form via email to all of PHS seniors that have completed an NWC application for the start term of Fall 2020. There will be four advisors taking appointments every 45 minutes. Admissions at NWC will conduct these meetings via zoom, and are encouraging parents to attend as well. Big Horn Basin seniors get priority registration, so NWC wants to make sure they can get as many students registered as they can. If you have any questions or need help, please contact NWC admissions at [email protected].
