We want to let you know that the grade reporting tile on the Tyler Parent Portal will be temporarily unavailable while our teachers are inputting their final grades for the semester. The grade reporting tile will be disabled on Wednesday, January 16, 2019. We expect it to be available again on Thursday, January 31, 2019. In addition, digital grades and report cards will be distributed on January 31. Thank you for your patience!
The Office of the Attorney General adopted the Safe2Say Something Program, which will be used by all school districts in Pennsylvania. Safe2Say is an anonymous reporting system that allows individuals (students, parents, teachers, staff, community members, etc.) to report anyone who may be showing signs they have the potential to carry out an act of violence at school.

The Golden Tornado Scholastic Foundation (GTSF) recently received two generous donations through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program. NexTier Bank and Baglier Buick GMC Mazda each donated $5,000 to the GTSF in 2018. The funds will be used to support the district’s STEAM program.
Connoquenessing students participated in the BEAT assembly at the end of December. BEAT stands for Behavior, Effort, Attitude, Teamwork. Students who earned a BEAT buck and won the 10 in a row on the front whiteboard got to race the principal in the gym or eat lunch with a friend at a special table. View more photos on Flickr>
First grade students at Connoquenessing Elementary donated toys to Children & Youth Services in Butler.
Instead of doing a gift exchange, third grade students at Connoquenessing decided to collect donations for the Humane Society.
Santa made a special visit to Connoquenessing before the winter break. He welcomed the students off the bus in the morning. Then he visited each classroom singing and handing out candy canes along the way! View more photos on Flickr>
Students in Mrs. Neff's second grade class and Mrs. Covert's third grade class at Connoquenessing recently completed a Growth Mindset lesson. Using the story "Giraffes Can't Dance," students worked to reframe their own thinking. The students also completed an art project to go along with their growth mindsets.
Some iOS (Apple) users may have noticed a white screen or blank screen on the Tyler app. Tyler is aware of the problem and has fixed it by releasing a new version of the app in the Apple App Store. If you are experiencing an issue with your app, please try downloading the updated version.
