    Equity and Inclusion at Conley
    Lets talk about Equity and Inclusion! Conley Elementary School PTO Presdent, Nicole McCabe, brings in her geckos to meet with K-3 students about accepting others differences. Here at Conley we pride ourselves on our diverse culture of learners, and this includes our students with special needs. Nicole has three beautiful geckos, one of which is disabled -- with its hands and feet turned in the oposite direction. Nicole has a community circle with the students to discuss the differences and similarities between all three geckos and how the disabled gecko, although different, can do all the things the other geckos can, just in a different way. She then relates this idea to students on campus who may look and act different than others. She plans to do the same for our 4th - 6th grade students. We are a caring and welcoming community that includes and learns from all! Way to go, Nicole, and way to go Conley! Equity and Inclusion at Conley photo album

    Donations for Families
    A special thanks to the Chandler district, our Conley team and one of our very own teachers for supporting the families who faced the tragic loss of their homes burning down. One of our teachers, Mrs. Amanda Serchen supported her son on a project to reach a goal of raising $1,000 to support these families! Not only did they reach that goal, but our great community members donated household supplies, clothing, and furniture to Conley families affected by this loss. Our parents were very grateful and said they truly feel a part of the Conley family.
