Principal's Welcome

 Dear Students, Families, Staff, and Community;

As I begin my first year as Principal of Congdon Elementary School, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students.  Together we will accomplish great things by setting high expectations and providing support to ensure those expectations are met by every child.  This year our students will receive a state of the art math program that brings math alive in new and exciting ways.  We will also continue implementing Reading Street for our reading and writing curriculum.  We have a highly dedicated staff of teachers who have been volunteering all summer to attend trainings and prepare our classrooms.  

We have a lot of hard work ahead of us as we embark on our journey of educational excellence.  There is much to do here at the school, in the community, and at home to help our children prepare for success.  I embrace the challenges of the future while continuing to cherish and celebrate the traditions of the past here at Congdon.  It is my goal that our remarkable staff, involved parents, and community members come together with our extraordinary students to make Congdon Elementary School an exceptional place to learn and grow.  

We hope your visit to our website gives you a quick snapshot of life at our school.  As the school year progresses we will add more information, pictures, and links.  

I look forward to partnering with you to provide an engaging, safe, and supportive learning environment where our students can grow academically, socially, and emotionally.

Please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Darcie Aungst, Principal
