Welcome to 2024 Congdon Park Families!   

I hope this letter finds you in good health and excited to see what 2024 brings.  As we embark on 2024,  I am delighted to extend a warm welcome back to all our Congdon families.    It is with great anticipation and excitement that we begin this second semester together, with a shared commitment to educational excellence and personal growth. 

As we move forward, I assure you that the well- being, safety, and educational progress of our students remain our top priorities.  We have implemented comprehensive measures and protocols to ensure a safe and  conducive learning environment.  Our dedicated team of educators and support staff has been working diligently to prepare for the second semester,  designing meaningful learning experiences that meet the diverse needs of our students. There has been an adjustment to the new kdg. section.  That section will begin on Tuesday, January 23 the first day of the second semester.  

In January, we will continue to foster a culture of collaboration, inclusivity, and respect within our school community.  We believe in the power of teamwork and the significance of a strong partnership between home and school.  I encourage you to actively engage in your child’s education, maintain open lines of communication, and participate in school activities and events whenever possible.  Together, we can provide the support and guidance our students need to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

I encourage you to stay connected with our school through Parent Square, Parent Portal, district and school website (  Congdon Park School  ). .  These platforms will provide you with important announcements, academic resources, and information about upcoming events.  Additionally, please do not hesitate to reach out to our dedicated staff members should you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.  We value your feedback and are committed to continuous improvement. 

Once again, Happy New Year  to Congdon Park  Elementary School.  Let us embrace this new semester/year  with enthusiasm and a determination to achieve greatness.  Together, we will overcome any obstacles, celebrate achievements, and create a thriving learning community where every student can flourish. 

Thank you for your support, and I look forward to a successful and rewarding second semester. 


Peace to you,


Principal Kathi
