Welcome to Our School

The Margaret  A. Connolly Elementary School was built in 1955 and was named for Miss Margaret A. Connolly who served as a teacher when the school opened its doors in 1955 (then called East School) and later as principal for 21 years. Her total years of service amounted to 25 years. The school is situated on 13 acres of land, and is located on Ridge Drive.

Currently, as part of the district's "Paired Plan," Connolly School serves Grade 3-5 students and is paired with Gribbin School (Grades K-2).

The Connolly School faculty and staff are dedicated to providing excellent opportunities for your child's educational and social growth. Our school's mission statement and instructional philosophy are supportive of these goals. Please feel free to contact the current principal, Ms. Julie A. Mullan, or any member of our staff at 801-7310.

Carnival Fun at Connolly

Connolly School students enjoyed a variety of outdoor activities, games and delicious snacks when the PTA hosted a carnival on June 15.

The PTA, led by Co-presidents Jaryme Demostheni and Deneen Jackson, planned the annual carnival for the entire student body. The group purchases games, small toys to use a prizes and outdoor equipment, such as frisbees, checkers and hoppity hops, which ultimately were donated to the physical education department for student use. They also secure vendors such as Mister Softee, to bring the students carnival-like treats. Jackson said the PTA fundraises for the carnival all year. 

“We do it because the children love it,” Jackson said. It gives them a day outdoors to really enjoy themselves.” 

Mrs. Mullen expressed her great appreciation for the PTA and everything they do for the students throughout the school year, especially the carnival, which she described as “a truly wonderful event.”
