Dear Conn Magnet Elementary School Families,  


Thank you to all who came out to Conn's first Book Character Day parade! We enjoyed celebrating our favorite book characters with our wonderful CONNmUNITY. A special thank you to Enloe High School's band for making a special appearance. What a great way to end a fabulous week!


Magnet Tours: Magnet tours have started! Do you remember your first moment at our new Conn Magnet Elementary campus? You should see the faces of families smiling and hear their voices of excitement as they join Ms. Chidester, Mr. Kimbro, and Mr. Gridley for tours. Please share this tour sign up link with neighbors and friends who are considering a school for their child(ren) next year. We look forward to seeing families from our neighborhood as well as families completing the magnet application process on an upcoming tour!

If you or someone you know is interested in supporting learning across our Conn Magnet community, please take a few minutes to complete this form.
