Powell Valley Elementary School

Powell Valley Elementary | Gresham-Barlow Education FoundationSince 1995, the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation has given $45,862 to Powell Valley Elementary. The majority of funds received were for Innovation Grants that directly enhance classroom instruction. The Panthers also received significant funding for literacy support, including the recent creation of a web-enabled eLibrary.

In 2018, the GBEF funded LEGO robotic material so that a robotic club can be established at PVES.  Principal Michele Cook requested funding for LEGO WE.DO 2.0 which allows students to participate in project-based coding experiences.  Lots of robots at PVES thanks to the GBEF!

GBEF Contribution since 1995

With these funds, the GBEF paid for literacy enhancements in addition to enriching classrooms with a focus on directly and positively impacting student learning.
