Conner Street Elementary School

Principal’s Message: Conner Street is a “Leader in Me” School. The Leader in Me Program encourages students to learn and practice 8 habits that will help them be successful in school and in life. Habit #1 is “Be Proactive.” This habit says, “I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions and my attitude. I will do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.” Please encourage your children to talk about Habit #1 and discuss ways they can be proactive at school and at home. Additional resources can be found online. If you need to reach me, please email at kbarker@k12.wv.us or call (304)562-9351 ext. 2211. Ms. BarkerJ

*Schedules: Do you wonder when your children are doing what at school? Take a look at the schedule on the back of this newsletter.The rest of the day, they are in class studying reading, writing, math, science, social studies, health…


*Names on jackets/lunch boxes:

As the cooler weather approaches, just a gentle reminder: A name written on a lunchbox or on the tag of a jacket can help us get it back to your child instead of having it sit in lost and found for infinityJ. Thanks!


*Changes of Transportation:

If your child’s usual method of transportation home changes, we MUST have it in writing from you. Children often become confused about changes in transportation, and if we don’t have a note from a parent/guardian, we will be sending them home their usual way. If a child is going home with another child at school, we MUST have written notes from BOTH parents in the morning. Thanks for understanding.


*Counselor’s Corner:

September is Attendance Awareness Month! Did you know that children suffer academically if they miss 10% of school days? That’s just a couple days each month. Absences and tardies add up, whether they’re excused or unexcused. Start early building good attendance habits that will follow your child into high school, college, and the workforce. Families can work together to establish these good habits by: developing regular routines for the morning rush and consistent bedtimes. Avoid scheduling appointments during the school day, especially during core instructional times (Reading, Language Arts, Math). If you have questions regarding attendance issues, please contact our school counselor, Mrs. Kelli Randan-Pennington.
