Dear Congress Park Community,
Our third through sixth graders have already begun IAR Testing. Everyone is working hard and having fun demonstrating what they know. Please ensure that your child is prioritizing sleep and eating breakfast in the morning so they have energy to do their best!
Our kindergarten through second graders have been supporting the older students by sending motivational posters and messages to give them a boost of confidence before testing day.
After this busy week at school it is time have fun! I hope to see you at the Spring Carnival this evening from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m here at Congress Park. Thank you, PTO, for making this event so special!
