The students at Powhatan Elementary School are high-achieving learners, who leave our school prepared to meet the challenges and high expectations of middle school. All students participate in rigorous curriculum and high quality opportunities for growth. As successful lifelong learners and productive citizens, our students achieve their fullest potential making a positive difference in our school and community.


The mission of Powhatan Elementary School is to provide students with a diverse education in a safe and nurturing learning environment that prepares them for post-secondary opportunities. By providing students with authentic and rigorous learning experiences that promote critical thinking, collaboration, engagement, and the use of technology, each child will be prepared for college and/or careers.



  •  ALL children can learn, and it is our responsibility to do whatever it takes to ensure that all children meet the standards for learning set by the school, county, and state.
  • We are in the business of learning, not teaching. Failure is not an option. We need to be committed to doing whatever is necessary to help every child succeed.
  • When people work together it benefits both students and staff.
  • Learning should be interactive, engaging and meaningful with real world, authentic connections.
  • Learning should be fun (coming to work should be fun!)
  • All people should be treated with respect at all times.

TOWSON, MD — The annual summer episode of “Parent University” – featuring a variety of seasonal activities to keep youngsters engaged and learning – is now airing on Comcast Cable Channel 73 and Verizon FiOS Channel 34 in Baltimore County. The show, hosted by Sue Hahn of BCPS’ Parent University, focuses on keeping students busy and active during the long, lazy, and hot days of summer. In the episode, Hahn takes viewers on excursions to Glenn L. Martin Aviation Museum in Middle River, the Marshy Point Nature Center in Chase, and the Agriculture Center in Hunt Valley, as well as to local branches of the Baltimore County Public Library. “Summer can be a tough time to find things to do that are both fun and educational,” says Hahn, a specialist in the school system’s Office of Family and Community Engagement. “But there are many opportunities across Baltimore County and the region for both having summertime fun and learning a little bit about our region, our history, our culture, and our people. The important thing is to get out there and explore what our county has to offer.” Parent University is a BCPS program that supports parents and caregivers through in-person workshops, online resources, and videos that meet unique educational needs of students and their families. The “Parent University” Summer Edition can be found on the Parent University home page at www.bcps.org/parentu/ or www.bcps.org/bcpstv/video.html?Program=PU&VideoID=853. During the school year, BCPS-TV, the school system’s television station, produces a new episode of “Parent University” every two weeks. Earlier episodes of the show are available at www.bcps.org/bcpstv/programs and https://vimeo.com/bcps. Since 1983, BCPS-TV has produced original and instructional programming, interactive DVDs, commercial satellite downlinks, and live telecasts to serve the informational needs of students, parents, educators, and citizens of Baltimore County. The television station also provides opportunities for BCPS students, staff, and stakeholders to learn about and gain experience in television and video production. Original programs airing on the television station include “High School Sports Scene,” “Math Homework Helpers,” “Kid Conversation,” “Parent University,” “Student Art Break,” “Student Production Showcase,” “Brain Gain,” “Up Beat,” and “The Chalkboard.” BCPS-TV also records and airs systemwide music and recognition events as well as recorded and live-stream broadcasts of the public meetings of the Baltimore County Board of Education.
