Connolly Elementary School

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.
