Hello Terrapin Families,

The APEX Run was a huge success!!!  I always embrace opportunities to show our Terrapins how important health and physical activity are.  We cannot thank you enough for the amazing participation and pledges for our school!  Turtleback has been empowered because of this experience and the support from our incredible community!  
An Evening of Art & Culture! Please join us tonight at our Multicultural Fair from 5:00-8:00 pm.  This event is free to attend and many parents have been hard at work creating country stations, an art walk displaying your child’s masterpiece, coordinating rolling international performances, and more!

The Luckiest Principal in the World,
Adam Carlin

PUSD 23-24 Continuing Student Registration Will Reopen on May 22nd at 8:00 am
Online Continuing Student Registration will reopen on March 22nd. We MUST receive a completed digital packet for all returning students. This will allow for proper placement of your student for the 2023-2024 school year. This annual digital process will allow a family to complete one single “family” packet instead of completing one packet per student. Packets can be completed using any computer, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection.  

Continuing Registration Steps: 
1. Login and complete the digital registration packet online at the ParentVue portal: https://sis.powayusd.com/Packet
 2. Review and complete the required forms located at the conclusion of the process. A packet is not considered finalized until this step is completed.
