What an amazing day at Connell's Field Day!

Students from Ancient Lakes, Pioneer, and QMS enthusiastically participated in various running and track events this week. Our incredible kids showed outstanding sportsmanship!

A big shoutout to the Quincy Booster's Club and Quincy Rotary for generously donating the event shirts, allowing us to represent the Green and Gold and showcase our Jackrabbit Pride!

A HUGE thank you to everyone involved in organizing and planning this fantastic day, especially our exceptional teachers. A special thank you to Rachel Korab, Rachel Adams, Stephanie Thornton, Shari Steele, Jacob Doctor, Eric Nelson, Darion Roth Drummond, Anne Bergman, Connie Martin, James Farris, Luz Camacho, Corina Alvarez, Kristine Vaughn, and Misty Gonzales for their invaluable contributions. We would also to thank our dedicated bus drivers who safely transported students, staff, and parents to Connell. We are grateful for the parents who made the drive to cheer on their kids and show their unwavering support

To the wonderful Connell Staff, thank you for creating a fun-filled atmosphere, providing engaging games, and ensuring we were well-fed throughout the day. This event wouldn't have been the same without each and every one of you. Thank you!
