Mr. Dontrell Powell
Dear Parents/Guardian and Students
My name is Mr. Dontrell Powell. I would like to welcome you to my Health & Physical Education (K-5). This is my 6th year as an educator. I am a proud product of Halifax County Schools. I attended Elizabeth City State University where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Health & Physical Education.
Health and Physical Education is a valuable, skills-based class that students will develop knowledge, attitudes, and essential skills in various health-related subjects. This will also include mental and emotional health, social health, nutrition, physical fitness, treatment, and injury prevention and safety.
Physical Education combines the best face-to-face instruction with student participation in weekly cardiovascular, aerobic, and muscle toning activities. The class promotes an understanding of the value of physical fitness and aims to motivate students to participate in physical activities throughout their lives.
I look forward to working with the students of Aurelian Springs as we become active learners!
