Dear Parents/Guardians,

          We are thankful for all our students and your support! First Trimester ended on October 26 and tremendous success is being seen through the distance learning platform. We are proud of our students and all their hard work. Honors Celebrations will take place on Tuesday, November 10. Students and parents will be given a time next week for their Honors Celebration through the online TEAMS. Students attending school on Tuesday, November 10, (for on-site support services) will be honored with students participating online. Parents will be invited to join and view the celebration with their child at home (on the child’s computer). Individual class celebration times will be given to families next week. Please note, students onsite will not be able to have family attend due to COVID-19 mitigation efforts at the school site.

To have meals, children do not need to attend Congress Elementary School District. No food needs to be pre-ordered. Meals are delivered via a bus route (route times are posted on the school website) and the school site is open for pick-up from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm.
