  Congdon News

There will be no school for children on:

Friday, January 19 for semester break,

Friday, January 26 for a staff development day.


We have a PTA meeting this Thursday, January 18th at 12:00 PM in the PTA room on the third floor.  Younger siblings are welcome to attend.


Did you know that there is a Facebook group just for Congdon Park Parents? It is a closed group where parents can ask questions, share ideas, and PTA leadership will often post reminders of meetings, events, and other updates. Check it out here.


The Cougar Reader (K.E.Y. Zone's newspaper club publication) has a new edition.  In this club, 4th and 5th grade students participate in putting together a newspaper and choosing a topic that interests them to write about. Check out the articles they composed here.


K.E.Y. Zone at the Y offers a variety of exciting opportunities along with snack, homework help, and enriching activities.  This is a unique opportunity only offered to Congdon students.  Please see flyer for more information.


Now that we have all settled in to the school routine, it is time for a quick reminder ... "Is My Child Well Enough to go to School".  Please see handout for more information.


Once a week, take a peek!  ‘Tis the season for lice, which can spread quickly among children during play.  Head lice can be an uncomfortable but common issue among children.  An estimated 6 to 12 million infestations occur each year among U.S. children 3 to 11 years of age. Head lice do not carry diseases.  Personal hygiene or household or school cleanliness are not factors for infestation. Lice do not jump or fly; they only move by crawling. They spread mostly by direct head-to-head contact.  As a matter of routine, families should check their child’s head regularly for signs of head lice - especially elementary school-age children.  Please see handout for more information.


The Catalog Season is upon us, once you are done with them, please place them in the Green New Page Dumpster, along with glossy ads, magazines and white paper.  It helps Congdon turn trash into cash!

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!!!


Please sign up for volunteering for Art Adventures with Becky Hartley at bekstam@gmail.com.  We will be receiving the art set from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in March 2018 and will have the set through the end of March.  Just 1 meeting a week in your favorite classroom is a fun way to be involved bringing art to the classroom!  This year our themed set is called AMERICAN STORIES and you can check out the pieces HERE.  No experience necessary, we will provide you a brief training and all the information and materials needed.  Please email with any questions.  Volunteer sign up will be posted soon, and Informational meeting will be held in February, date and time TBD.


The Book Fair is Coming, The Book Fair is Coming!

Our Spring Scholastic Book Fair--"Paws for Book"--is just a few weeks away.  The event will be February 5-7 in the Congdon Park Media Center, and we will be open both during the school day and in the evenings during parent-teacher conferences. The Book Fair benefits our school by making books available to families at affordable prices, securing donations for classrooms and our media center, and raising money for our school.  We need parent assistance to make this fair a success!  Click on the volunteer tab at the top of this page for more info on volunteer slots.  If you have any questions about the event, please email Jenny at mjkempfert@yahoo.com or Meghan at meghansperl@gmail.com



We need two Playground/Cafeteria Monitors at Congdon.  Please consider and pass on this info to anyone who may be interested.  Click HERE for more information.
