Welcome to East Coventry Elementary School

  • Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! 

    I am pleased to serve as the principal of such an amazing school.  This school year, we will provide a high-quality education to over 560 students.  Our EveryDay Math Program and the Lucy Calkins Reading and Writing Units of Study will challenge our children to become proficient students able to meet the demands required by the rigorous PA Common Core Standards.  Instruction is provided through whole-group lessons paired with individual and small-group support.  Our teachers receive ongoing professional development embedded in their every day instruction in order to hone thier skills as crafted practioners.  

    Throughout the course of the school year, the community will see the completion of a brand new elementary school take place.  Located behind the existing school will be a state-of-art 85,800 square foot elementary school that will serve many hundreds of future East Coventry students.  The large media center prominently located in the front of the building along with learning labs, separate gym and cafeteria spaces, science labs, and large music and art rooms will provide areas for students to learn and explore. Construction updates and information can be found at: http://ojrsd.com/Page/6036


    As spring draws near, visit the EC webpage for events and activities that allow current and previous OJRSD families the opportunity to say “goodbye” to the existing school that has provided countless years of memories.
