Dear Conley Family,
I am honored to be your principal and be a part of such a warm, welcoming community! J. Michael Conley Elementary School at Southwood has a reputation for excellence in Leon County. This reputation exists due to the students, parents, teachers, and staff that are a part of our Yellow Jacket family. Our school community works closely with an outstanding group of community and business partners that, together, create a safe, nurturing, and enjoyable learning environment. I am excited to work with so many amazing individuals and I can't wait to see what the school year has to offer!

Conley WeatherSTEM is an online platform that connects weather stations placed in schools around the district in order to compile all of the data the stations are collecting. There are two separate devices on our campus, a cloud camera that records the cloud movement over our campus, and weather instruments that track things like temperature, barometric pressure, wind speed, heat index, etc. There is a curriculum component with lesson plans that teachers can use to teach students all sorts of science, computer programming, and other STEM topics at all grade levels. However, anyone can visit our Conley WeatherSTEM page to access the latest data!

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM District Advisory Council Meeting
As the first nine weeks comes to a close, Assistant Superintendent Gillian Gregory led a presentation in front of the Leon County School Board, providing members with updates after using the new hybrid learning model.

A native of Nairobi-Kenya, and a longtime teacher at Kate Sullivan Elementary School, Mr. Amon Rwito is multi-lingual—literally and figuratively—since he is fluent in five languages. He also strives to inspire a love for curiosity and discovery through the language of his favorite subject—science. Mr. Rwito is equally skilled in the written word and is a published author of a children’s book. His multi-cultural, multi-subject-matter approach allows for an “exchange of ideas and knowledge with my students. It’s important to want to learn from one another. I learn from my students more than I think I teach them.” #ThankATeacher
