The Thomas G. Connors Elementary School Kindergarten Experience
On Wednesday, August 19, 2015, our new kindergarten students came to Connors with their parents for a morning of centers and getting to know you activities. Under the guidance of Principal Fitzhugh and Vice Principal Morales, the kindergarten team, including the instructional aides and Reading Coach Rosanna Lucignano were on site to simulate the day in the life of a kindergarten student. The parents were able to receive answers to those burning questions prior to the start of the school year. The Connors Elementary School Family is looking forward to welcoming our youngest learners on Tuesday, September 8, 2015.
Mrs. Christina Arnone received a $513 gift card from the Secaucus Walmart store for her back to school classroom shopping. Click the title above to read the full story on NJ.Com.
The 2015-2016 calendar was revised at the June 30 Hoboken Board of Education meeting. There was a change in the date for a professional development workshop for staff from October 28 to October 29. There will be no school for students on October 29.

Connors Elementary shares exciting news!!!!
In January 2015, the NJ Performance Report stated that Thomas G. Connors Elementary School met 100% of their performance targets in Student Achievement and Student Growth on NJASK 13-14. Connors Elementary School is the only school within our school district to have achieved this honor this past school year. In a more recent communication from the Department of Education, we learned that that as of July 1, 2015, Thomas G. Connors Elementary School will no longer be designated as a Focus School. Per the Department of Education, "Multiple factors informed the decision-making process, including students' standardized test outcomes, RAC team feedback, and the sustainability of any noted improvements." This is a great accomplishment, especially for the staff and students who worked so diligently to garner this achievement. Principal Gerald Fitzhugh, II, is already making plans to lead the learning community toward further improvement. "The next milestone for Thomas G. Connors Elementary School to accomplish is Reward School Status. We have a staff who are committed to teaching and learning as well as developing the whole child." Again, kudos to the Thomas G. Connors Elementary School stakeholders for accomplishing such an honor. As a district, we celebrate with you these fine accomplishments.
Gifted and Talented Students score in state competition
Students in the Hoboken Public Schools Gifted and Talented Program recently participated in two competitions sponsored by the EIRC (the Educational Information and Resource Center). The local component was held on May 23rd at HJSHS. One of the competitions, SITE (Student Inventions Through Education), required students to create inventions solo or in teams. The other competition, Green Challenge, required students to create projects involving technology, green industries and sustainability.

The Hoboken Public Schools Science Fair incorporates inquiry-based learning that infuses science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students were required to participate in a school-level science fair this year. Teachers worked with students on ongoing investigation and application of the scientific process. The students’ knowledge and skills were put to a test at the school-level science fair. The winners in each grade of the school-level science fairs qualified to compete in the district-level science fair which was held on Tuesday, June 16, 2015 at Wallace Elementary School from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm.
