Principal's Welcome

Dear O’Brien Community:

East Hartford Public Schools’ vision is that our Schools will be the Pride of the Community, and our mission is to deliver a high-quality learning experience for EVERY CHILD, EVERY DAY. The staff members of O’Brien Elementary School are committed to ensuring the success of each of our students.

We seek to engage students in high level thinking and problem solving as they explore and ask questions about the world around them. Students are provided with differentiated learning opportunities in and beyond the classroom. It is our goal to promote a positive school climate in which our students flourish socially, emotionally and academically.

At O'Brien, we know how important it is to welcome families as partners in creating a collaborative school environment to support our community's success. We welcome our students' families to participate in school events and activities throughout the year, become involved in our Parent Teacher Organization and to volunteer with their child's classroom. Our Family Support Specialist, Mrs. Jessenia Turcios, is here to help families make connections with staff and community resources.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at 860-622-5760 if you have a question or need assistance. We look forward to working with you to ensure your child’s success.
