Conway Elementary School - August 28, 2023

Welcome Back Cougar Families!

We hope this letter finds you well and excited for the upcoming school year! As we gear up for another fantastic academic journey, we wanted to extend a warm welcome back to all our returning families and a heartfelt greeting to our new additions to the Conway Elementary community.

The start of a new school year is a time filled with anticipation, hope, and possibilities. We have been diligently preparing to provide your children with a safe, nurturing, and enriching environment where they can learn, grow, and thrive. Our dedicated team of educators and staff members have been working tirelessly to ensure that our school is ready to deliver a high-quality educational experience.

Check out the first newsletter for a few important pieces of information to help you and your child get ready to come back to school!


The theme for our 2023-24 school year is "Reach for the Stars." T-shirts will be sent home on the first day of school. Please be sure to have your child wear their new shirt this Friday, 9/1 for our whole school activities!

Every School Day Counts

We are so excited to have your students back in the classroom! It is so important that students are here every day because every school day counts. Students are much more successful academically when they are in school on a consistent basis, but they are also more successful socially as it takes time to build strong relationships with their teacher and peers.

School hours are 9:00AM - 3:15PM. If your child is going to be absent, please be sure to call the main office, prior to 9:00AM to let us know. The number is 603-447-3369.
