It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to JoAnna Connell. We offer a rigorous and challenging curriculum for all students. It is my sincere hope that you continue to see that “Educational Excellence=Successful Students” in all of the classrooms at JoAnna Connell Elementary School. Research tells us what is best for children of all ages and this information has helped us create the best possible learning environment for all of our students. Our teachers and staff know what students need to be successful, and they provide this on a daily basis in their classrooms. Remember that the most important things that children need are free. These include consistency and consequences, rules and boundaries, support and patience, and love and attention. I strongly believe that we can work together to provide these for our students to help ensure their success.
