January 2022

Dear Parents,

The staff at Congress Elementary would like to wish you and your family a very Happy Winter Break! A special thank you to Benner-Nawman for boxes of food donated to families in need. Also, thank you to Christmas Elves for all their Christmas cheer they have brought to families and the Disabled American Veterans for their donations of stockings for K-2 students. Congratulations to Third and Eighth Grade students for winning the Wickenburg Sun’s door decorating contest. All the doors were a wonderful treat to see during December. A shout-out to Mrs. Jimenez, cafeteria manager, and her creative door and joining in all the cheer.

Students will be returning on Monday, January 3, 2022. We would like to welcome Ms. Fritz, paraprofessional, as a new full-time addition to our Congress instructional support staff. Mid-trimester for the Second Trimester was Monday, December 14 and Progress Reports will be mailed home January 6, 2022. PK4 Parents reminder starting the week of January 10, 2022, your child will be attending school 3 days a week, Monday- Wednesday with the first week back being only Tuesday and Wednesday.

A friendly reminder that if your family “travels”/interacts with others that may have COVID-19 and you feel your child (or family members) is displaying COVID-19 symptoms, please DO NOT send your child to school per the mitigation plan. If you are unsure about whether to send your child to school, we ask that you err on the side of caution and do not send them. Contact the teacher and discuss/decide the best decision before sending your child to school.

As always, we Thank you, for your continued support.

Dr. Miller, Superintendent
