He has served as Instructional Assistant Principal at the school for the past 7 years.

Mr. Moore truly understands the culture and is well prepared for the high expectations of the faculty, parents and community. I have the utmost confidence in his ability to provide energy, enthusiasm and instructional leadership to the school and its students. “

Moore said, “I am thrilled and honored to be the principal at Powdersville Elementary School. I have worked at Powdersville as both fourth grade teacher and instructional assistant principal so I know firsthand the support this community has for its schools. There is no place I would rather be.”

“We have an incredible faculty and staff at Powdersville. Our goal will always be to put student learning at the forefront of all we do. Starting with the front office and teachers, we want to show our Powdersville families that we truly care about our students and our community as a whole. We are committed to positively impacting Powdersville. Parents can look for improved communication, a continuing focus on the safety and security of our students, and multiple opportunities to join with our faculty and staff to support student learning. Together, we can take Powdersville Elementary School to even greater heights! 

“We will continue to make technology integration a priority at Powdersville Elementary School. We are poised to be leaders in our district and our state when it comes to using the iPads to create and collaborate in order to prepare our students for college and career,” Moore said.

“We take a great deal of pride in the successes of our staff and students. However, we know that we have only reached the tip of the iceberg in terms of achievement. Our best days are ahead of us. Parents need to know we are working hard as a staff to better ourselves and the instructional product we provide for our students.”
