BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION – The school year is rapidly coming to a close, please send in any collected Box Tops so they can be processed throughout the summer.  Remember, Box Tops have expiration dates and cannot be turned in for money for Congdon after the printed date. Please be sure to collect Box Tops over the summer and give us a great start in the fall!  Thank you to all the families who have sent in their Box Tops throughout the school year. Congdon Park received checks for a total of $543.60 during the 2017/2018 school year!

The Congdon Tremendous T-rexes Destination Imagination Team are heading to Globals!! The Tremendous T-rexes won 1st place at both the Regional and State Competitions in the Technical - Maze Craze Category, and now qualify for Globals in Knoxville, TN. The team built and coded a robot to navigate its way through 1 of 4 Mazes in a Magical Forest! Props & handmade costumes bring their script to life, and now the team is journeying to the Globals Competition.

Would you like to have all of your child’s school supplies on your child’s desk for Back to School night instead of spending too much time searching for that elusive red folder at numerous stores? Congdon has partnered with Schoolkidz, a subsidiary of Staples, to provide all  school supplies for each grade. Look for order forms the week of April 9. Orders must be placed online at shopttkits.com (school code 31958) by June 22nd. Feel free to contact Amy White at amycwhite72@gmail.com with questions.


If students laze away the days of summer without using their minds, they can lose up to a month of learning—especially in reading and math.  This month's Report to Parents, “Exercise Kids' Minds During Summer” offers families fun, brain-friendly activities to keep their children engaged over the summer.


ISD709'S recently updated wellness policy can be viewed at http://www.isd709.org/for-parents/Wellness-Policy.  Congdon Park strives to help our children learn healthy habits in school, as well as fostering those habits throughout life. Please refer to the Healthy Snacks & Classroom Celebrations handout and introduction letter for some great healthy ideas that support the district wellness policy.
