Principal's Message

September 25, 2020

Conway Elementary Families,

It is hard to believe that we are already heading into October! Together we navigated a unique start to the school year. I appreciate the flexibility and adaptability of our students, families, and staff. We have all been making the best of a challenging situation and are making sure that the focus remains on teaching and learning. I am proud to say that the Conway community is incredibly tight-knit, passionate, and resilient. Those traits are the very components we need this year as we navigate a school year that is just as non-traditional as the last one ended.

Thank you for your ongoing understanding that our teachers are learning along with their students, and for your patience when technology glitches do occur. We will undoubtedly have other minor kinks to work through, but we will navigate the process and problem solve accordingly. Our teachers are completely dedicated to making their classrooms (physical and digital) engaging and student friendly. Most importantly, they are passionate about meeting the learning needs of every child in the classroom.

We look at the 2020-2021 school year as an opportunity for our children. They will view and remember this time of their lives through a lens of optimism only if we model it positively for them. You are your child’s greatest cheerleader for learning. We ask that you continue to have conversations about what they have learned each day. Ask them to show you what problems they have solved, stories they have written, pictures they have drawn. Have them retell stories they have read, and what they liked or disliked about the characters. Make independent reading (and reading aloud) a regular part of your nightly routine.

Finally, we will continue to communicate any changes coming from the OCPS district office via our teachers, Connect Orange calls/emails, our school website, and on our Facebook page. Please make sure your contact information is up-to-date in our system by contacting your child’s teacher or our school office.

Thank you for all you do to support our students and the school.
Mr. Maguire
