Christina Pappas
Nolley Principal

Welcome to Nolley Elementary School!

   As I enter my 14th year as principal at Nolley Elementary, I am more excited than ever to be able to be part of this school and community. I have been a life-long Manchester community member. I graduated from Manchester in 1994 and taught at Nolley for ten years. It is my honor to serve the community of Manchester as the principal at Nolley School.

   We service approximately 475 students in kindergarten through fourth grade. Nolley is a Leader in Me school, with a mission of developing leaders, one child at a time. Our dedicated staff is committed to helping our students meet academic challenges, develop positive character traits and leadership skills, and become upstanding citizens. We have created an environment where teachers love coming to teach and students love coming to learn.

   Here at Nolley, we believe that the partnership between parents and school is an integral part of our school community. We not only encourage parent involvement, we NEED it! Throughout the school year you will see the results of our PTA efforts. Whether helping individuals and small groups in the classroom, volunteering for room parties, helping with Santa Shop, Fun Fair, Walking Club, or assisting with fundraising and special projects, our Nolley parents play a vital role in their children’s education. As partners, we share the common goal of nurturing each growing and developing child and giving each student the greatest head start in the world. Because of this, children will continue to succeed at our school. I strongly encourage you to become involved in PTA.  Every helping hand makes a difference!

   I have high expectations for the students of Nolley Elementary. I know with a knowledgeable staff and supportive community guiding the learning process, Nolley students will reach their full potential.
