Activities at Congdon

MAY THE COINS BE WITH YOU!  Have your children been digging through the couch cushions or car seats looking for spare change?  If so, it’s because the coin drive starts March 7th and runs through March 21st . The money raised from this event helps to support student enrichment and class field trips at Congdon Park Elementary.   

The theme this year is Star Wars and the teams are Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader!  The team who raises the most money will be rewarded at an all school assembly. Please help support this great fundraiser!

The Lake Superior Youth Chorus is thrilled to announce it's spring Prelude program, where singers can experience an introductory choral experience in an after-school program setting. Prelude is a non-auditioned introductory choir for students in grades 2-5. In this program, singers explore music skills and concepts through games and singing activities in the choral setting.  The first Prelude music class is scheduled to start on March 13th.  Please see flyer for more information.

Families can also learn more and register by visiting our website.

We will once again be doing the Lake Superior Challenge.  The challenge encourages our Congdon community to stay healthy through movement.

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.

Please sign up for volunteering for Art Adventures with Becky Hartley at  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.
