In God We Trust!

      In what’s called the “National Motto Act” passed at the Tennessee General Assembly last April our school along with all other schools in the state of Tennessee have the privilege to post our “National Motto” in the school building.

Congratulations!!!  Powell Valley received the highest possible score for school growth on the TCAP’s.  We received a score of 5 for ELA, a 5 for Math, a 5 for Science, a 5 for Social Studies, a 5 for Numeracy and Literacy, and a 5 for the Composite score.

Let’s show our Powell Valley Pride!


What a pleasure it is to welcome you back to a new school year at Powell Valley Elementary. It is truly an honor for us to work together with such a talented and dedicated faculty, staff, and school community. We believe in a strong partnership with families, and we urge the entire community to become involved at PVES. Students whose parents and families get involved in their education do better academically and socially. They feel more connected to the school and know that they BELONG.

We look forward to this new school year with optimism and excitement. We strive to make our school a safe and inspiring place in which to learn, while continually improving the academic program for all students. We believe that all students can and will be respectful, responsible, and accountable in all they do.

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Powell Valley Elementary School, we welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.
