Connolly School’s K-Kids organized a fundraiser for the charitable organization Autism Speaks in recognition of Autism Awareness Month.

To raise funds, students sold multicolored bracelets that read, We Stand Together” to fellow students and teachers. They also encouraged the school community to wear blue in honor of Light it Up Blue day.

Prior to the sale, students created posters to promote the sale, they also made announcements via the school’s public address system. Due to the overwhelming, generous response to the sale, K-Kids adviser Krystle Gonzalez indicated that more bracelets would be purchased to fill requests. To-date, the K-Kids raised more than $300 for Autism Speaks, with donations still coming in.   

Read Across America Day at Connolly

Connolly

Connolly students in Susan Gielbeda’s, Nancy Gorman’s and Kathleen Madigan’s classes participated in Read Across America Week and celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2.

First, the students listened to a read aloud of “Bartholomew and the Oobleck,” while enjoying green eggs. They then completed a science project creating oobleck of their own using water, corn starch and food coloring. They tested various materials to see if they would float or sink and everyone was excited to see the oobleck show properties of both solids and liquids.

At the conclusion of the celebration, the students broke into groups to read some of Dr. Seuss' most popular stories. They enjoyed the activities and were happy to work as a team.





Connolly Hosts Fifth-Grade Science Fair

Fair

Connolly School fifth-graders demonstrated their knowledge of the scientific method during the school’s annual Science Fair on Feb. 3.

The fair featured projects that covered a wide range of topics, including the movement of balloons, expanding gummy bears and whether or not plants can grow without soil. According to fifth-grade teacher Maureen Hellman, the students started brainstorming ideas for their projects prior to the holiday recess. Once their topic was approved, each class reviewed the steps of the scientific method, discussing hypotheses and variables. They also learned to make charts and graphs using the data they collected.

Upon completion of their science projects, students were given an opportunity to demonstrate their work for classmates and teachers at the fair.
