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

Fifth grade students at Connolly School engaged in a six-week exploration of different cultures. Each class adopted a different continent and students then split into groups to research countries within that continent. Fifth graders wrote about geography, landmarks, food and other important aspects of culture, and the culminating project was a research paper written collaboratively with other students in the group. Children presented the projects and then experienced different foods related to the countries and continent they researched. Learning about different cultures can be a great way of developing an understanding of cultural diversity.

Connolly fifth graders engaged in the school’s annual science fair on June 7. Students worked in groups of two or three to explore different scientific concepts through inquiry, including absorbency, tooth decay, pulse, handedness, floating paper, producing shadows and memory. The fifth grade students then chose a topic to research and explore using the scientific method. Finally, the groups summarized their findings in their presentation.
