Welcome to Callaghan Elementary School

Thank you for visiting  Callaghan Elementary School’s website.  There are many new faces around the building as we kick off the 2018-2019 school year.  Here at Callaghan, we are  committed to improving students’ learning skills and providing quality instruction in a positive, nurturing, safe and success-oriented environment so that all students have the opportunity to reach their full learning potential and have the tools to make sound decisions for their future.

To parents and students, please become familiar with the school policies and procedures included in the Parent-Student Handbook.  It is full of helpful information that is both valuable and important to our day to day operations. 

The high standard of excellence that is historic to this school has been made possible through the efforts of parents, students, the school staff and community members working closely together.  I am very much looking forward to being a small part of its continuing legacy of success.   


I wish everyone an enjoyable and successful school year.

 With warmest regards,


 Joshua Craft, principal
