Calling all Zoologists! Conant’s first grade classes showcase their wonderful learning to family and friends during the First Grade Animal Exhibition as they step inside the shoes of scientists studying animals. Students observe the structure, form, appearance, behavior, characteristics, and habitats of animals and they journal their findings. Student Asher Schwartz shares, "I loved learning about tigers and sharing the information with my mom and grandparents."
Conant Elementary School
As an IB Primary Years Programme school, Conant Elementary "focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside." Our students participate in project-based learning that reflects the PYP philosophy of an integrated curriculum and incorporates 21st Century skills, global-mindedness, and the Common Core State Standards. We utilize inquiry-based instructional practices that build on children's natural curiosity and encourage students to use critical thinking skills, reflect on their learning and compassionately develop solutions for real-world problems.
Conant School Mission
To foster inquiry and innovation while preparing active citizens to participate in a global community.

Conant student, Baird George, shares about their group’s action project to help the endangered black-footed ferret, “We made cootie catchers which is an origami fortune teller used in children’s game. However, instead of fortunes we wrote facts about the black-foot ferret. We sold them for $1 each at recess. Our goal was to raise $180, and we raised $270! We donated the money to the American Ferret Association.” Mirabelle Boivin adds, “After learning about these global issues we are inspired to act and change our behavior. We volunteered at homeless shelters, we donated toys to children with cancer and put together care packages, we took pledges to stop bullying, we tried to walk or ride our bikes over driving to help with global warming, created posters to hang at the middle schools to prevent smoking and vaping, and there was even more. It felt good that we could make a difference!”

It is with many mixed feelings that I share with you that I will be moving to New York at the end of this school year. My wife recently accepted the position of Vice President of Human Resources and Labor Relations for the State University of New York's Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in Manhattan. After making the difficult decision to relocate to New York, I was offered the position of Superintendent with Eastchester Union Free School District...
