January 2019

Dear Parents,

All of the staff at Congress School wish you and your family a very Happy Winter Break. Thank you for those who were able to attend our Christmas Program this year. Families and students sang along to Christmas carols, listened to poetry, had a book read to them by a moose, and had a special visit from Santa Claus. Friday was a sensational Pajama Spirit Day!

A very special thank you to Mrs. Pat Fisher for her service to the school by serving as a Congress Elementary School District Board Member. In January, Mr. Grogan will replace Mrs. Fisher as a newly elected member of the Congress Elementary School Board. We are grateful to all Board Members for their dedication and service.

The PACK worked to support several different offerings for students and families in December. This included the Santa Shop, concessions at the basketball games, and a donation to the school of a rolling cooler. In January, they will be hosting a delicious dinner that is a targeted fundraiser. The money raised will go towards product that will reduce echo in the gym. PACK will also be hosting a Family Carnival Event in January.

We look forward to students returning on Monday, January 7, 2019. THANK YOU for having your child at school as much as possible. We have some students who are working hard to keep their perfect attendance. Perfect attendance is an award that can be obtained per each trimester as well as the whole school year.

Midtrimester for the Second Trimester was Thursday, December 13. Progress Reports for Second Trimester will be sent home during Winter Break.
