Ms. Jessica Connell - Kindergarten

Happy Summer!!! I have loved having your child in my class this year and will be missing them so much! Thank you parents for all of your support this year and during this weird and crazy time. I am so happy I got to end the year seeing some of their happy faces, thank you for allowing me to deliver their gifts!

A few notes about continuing learning this summer...

Epic! Will continue to allow student access until June 30th so keep reading!

Lalilo and Zearn should allow you to access your accounts during the summer.

  • Several students are about to finish the Zearn kindergarten program, if they complete it and would like to continue on, please notify my and I can set them for first grade!

Obviously none of this is required over the summer, but I highly encourage you and your student to keep using learning apps to help prepare them for first grade, especially with the extended time out of school.

If you are interested in attending summer school, please visit to register (register for session II).

Report cards will be mailed out to you in June.

Our class website will stay active this summer. Go to Ms. Connell's Kindergarten to see resources, messages, and videos of me reading aloud!




I am Ms. Connell and I am the kindergarten teacher at Lyon. This is my fifth year at the school and I love teaching kindergarten. It is such a wonderful age full of learning and exploring. I love to see young children enter the year, sometimes not even knowing letters, and leaving me as readers ready for first grade! 

I was born here in St. Louis, but moved to Kansas where I grew up. I moved back to St. Louis to attend college at Webster University where I received my bachelors in education with an emphasis in early childhood. While teaching at Lyon, I was able to complete my masters degree in reading and literacy at Maryville University. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, painting, cooking, and spending time with my friends and family.
