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.

The students in Mrs. Clementz’s fourth grade class recently enjoyed the holiday traditions of Hanukkah with Connolly retiree Mrs. Eileen Abramson. When Mrs. Abramson taught third grade she would share her Hannukah traditions by reading books, making latkes and teaching her students how to play the dreidel game. Shea, Mrs. Abramson’s grandson, and the entire class had fun learning about the holiday, taking part in the festivities and were very appreciative of all the effort Mrs. Abramson put into the special day.

Students from Mrs. Bouza, Mrs. Gorman, Mrs. Madigan, and Mrs. Drennan’s classes recently participated in a special holiday project called “Holiday Fun.” The students spent the day creating projects through eight holiday rotations including holiday presents for their families, holiday cupcake decorating, and of course some holiday hot cocoa. Each center consisted of students from each classroom and taught the students to work together and learn how to understand their differences while having fun. By spending time together and working collaboratively on projects in a fun and safe atmosphere the students can learn and appreciate each other. Happy Holidays to All!
