To support a culture where EVERY FAMILY IS WELCOMED as a full partner in their child's learning and development.
We aim to establish and maintain effective partnership with schools, families and members of the community to increase student achievement for every child.
Kindergarten students enjoying a morning participating in EDI Olympics. The Early Development Inventory allows teachers and parents to understand how a group of children fare in terms of developmental benchmarks. O’Connell Elementary School is one of eight elementary schools in East Hartford that participated in this project. Students spent the morning taking part in several activities for each of the five domains: social competence; emotional maturity; physical health and well-being; language and cognitive development; and communication skills and general knowledge.
