Our first PTA meeting of the year is this Thursday, September 21 from 12-1 in the new multipurpose room on the third floor (Rm 324).  PTA meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of every month from 12-1p.  Everyone is welcome - younger kids too!  Check the Congdon Park Elementary website for more opportunities to get involved!


Congdon is also looking for playground and cafeteria monitors. Visit www.isd709.org and look under the DISTRICT tab for Job number 2771 and 2868 to see more information.


Fall Harvest Festival is this week from September 19-22.  Students are invited to bring in something that they helped grow that represents fall.  Please include the attached entry form with your item.


Walk to School Day is October 4.  We are looking for volunteers to meet the buses at Ordean Middle School, and walk the 3 blocks down to school to encourage safe walking, and safe street crossing. We are looking for 3 adults to accompany each Walking Bus. We also need volunteers to help reward our students participating in International Walk to School Day as they reach the school!  More information to come.


Save the Dates: Our fall Scholastic Book Fair will be held October 16-18 in the Congdon Park library.  This year's theme is "Wild West Book Fair--Saddle Up & Read!"  Watch for more information to come about the book fair, including a volunteer sign-up.  If you have any questions, please contact Jenny Kempfert at (218) 348-0509 or Meghan Sperl at (952) 239-9106.


The Congdon Spooktacular/Science Night with UMD will take place on Friday, November 3rd.  Students from the science departments at UMD come visit our school for a fun night of hands-on science demonstrations.  More information to come.


The One and Done Direct Appeal Fundraiser is underway, having raised $6,220.00 of our $23,000 goal. This is the only PTA fundraiser of the year! Funds raised will be used to support our students in the following ways: Please click here for more information.

Box Tops for Education is a great source of free money that goes directly to our school (not to the district or any committee).  Please invite friends, family, and coworkers to clip and share their Box Tops.  Congdon raises about $600 per year through Box Tops.  It would be great if we could make that closer to $1,000 this year!  Box Tops can be turned in to the bin in the school lobby any time during the year.  The coordinator submits them for payment twice a year, once in the fall, once in the spring.  Box Tops will expire, so please don't wait for a large full bag - turn in every couple months!


Congdon is AMAZING with its recycling efforts!  Check out all the ways families can participate.  We ask everyone to please review the list of acceptable plastic for the plastic bag recycling-- PLEASE NO BAGS WITH METALLIC INTERIORS.  Thanks and keep up all the efforts!!!
