Powell celebrates military students with fun pep rally

(POWELL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL -- April 18, 2019) — Students and teachers at this campus celebrated its ties with Fort Bliss on Thursday to continue its observance of April as the Month of the Military Child.

Powell had its annual Purple Up pep rally to cheer on the contributions that the children of military families make to the diversity and betterment of communities like El Paso.

EPISD is proud to serve Fort Bliss and has a long-standing partnership with the post.

School officials said the color purple was chosen to represent the military child because if combined, the colors that represent each of the U.S. armed forces would yield purple.
