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.

 Due to the inclement weather forecast for tomorrow, Wednesday, June 13, we will be postponing our Carnival until Friday, June 15, 2018. Thank you for your understanding.

Please note school hours for Connolly School are 8:10 am -2:55 pm

Connolly Students Get Excited for More Books

Fourth-grade students in Susan Bouza’s class at Connolly School celebrated their classroom’s new library of books with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 27.

The hundreds of books include a variety of genres and align with units of study in Columbia University’s Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, which the district implemented last school year. According to Connolly School Principal Julie Mullan, the program has inspired district students to write.

“We’ve watched our students go from hesitant writers to being more able and excited to write,” Ms. Mullan said. “Their writing stamina has also increased.”

While Ms. Bouza’s class was the first to receive the library, it won’t be the last, as all classrooms at Connolly and Landing schools in grades 3-5 are also receiving books. These new books were made available thanks to an 611 IDEA grant through the special education department to provide intervention and strategies for special education and general education students.
