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 2019-2020 school year has to offer!
I hope your visit to our website gives you a snapshot of life at Conley. Please explore the links to find out more about curriculum, programs, and daily events. Feel free to e-mail me with questions, comments, or concerns and I look forward to working with everyone this school year!
In an effort to strengthen the partnership between school and home, Leon County Schools have prepared a Read-at-Home Plan to support early literacy. This plan will provide you with activities and a list of online resources you can use with your child. Please click here for more information.
Conley is one of the newest recipients of WeatherSTEM, 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! Currently, WeatherSTEM is holding a competition to see which school can get the most Facebook "Likes" and the winner will receive small solar panels and possibly small motors to be used by students. Please help Conley out by going to https://www.facebook.com/WXSTEM and Like the WeatherSTEM page.

Hawks Rise Elementary School students have Reading and Math Pals thanks to the United Way of the Big Bend. The program pairs mentors with students who need individual attention in math and reading. Students love the friendship and one on one support after school.
