Principal's Message

Welcome to the Congress Elementary School Family! Our District's Vision has two parts. First is for "Students to enjoy learning and success." Second, is for "Students to discover the world and its opportunities."

The 2017-2018 school theme is “Embracing Excellence through Collaboration.” Hellen Keller stated, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much". Collaboration is identified in skills needed for our future workforce. The Partnership for 21
st Century identifies what skills future workers will need to be a part of a global economy. These skills are called, "The 4Cs": Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking. If you are interested in learning more about these traits, you can visit http://www.p21.org/ for more information. This school year, students will be working on projects in collaboration with students around the world.
   
Congress Elementary School was identified as one of seven pilot schools for increasing STEM (Science, Technology, Education, Math) education, by Science Foundation Arizona, in the State of Arizona. Ongoing STEM programs, during the 2017-2018 school year, will include: MakerSpace, Legos Robotics, ST Math, DefinedSTEM, and a Drama program which integrates STEM. We look forward to continuing to showcase and share our STEM accomplishments.

To support excellent instruction, the school instructional theme is "Embracing Excellence through Whole Child Education". To learn more about whole child education, please visit the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development's Whole Child website at:
