Principal's Message

  • I am Michael Smolnik and I proudly serve as the principal of Aura A. Cole Elementary School in Constantia, NY. Our school, whose attendance zone spans a majority of the north shore of beautiful Oneida Lake, houses grades Pre-K through five. We have approximately four hundred students and fifty staff members who enter our doors daily.
