Message from principal

Congdon Students, Families, Staff, and Community,

As a proud, lifelong resident of the city of New Bedford, I am deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students and families. Together we make the difference!

At Congdon, we set high expectations and provide the necessary support to ensure those expectations are met by every child. We have a highly dedicated staff who are committed to providing the best education possible to all students.

We have a lot of hard work ahead of us as we embark on our educational journey of excellence. There is much to do at the school, in the community, and at home, to prepare our children for success.

I embrace the challenges we may face, while continuing to cherish and celebrate the traditions here at Congdon. It is my goal that our remarkable staff, amazing families, and committed community members come together with our students to make Congdon Elementary School an exceptional place to learn and grow.

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

Please do not hesitate to contact me.
