Lost and Found! Please take a look and see if any of this belongs to your child. 😊
Feeding our bodies and souls for the school day with a whole staff pot luck breakfast. Thank you to Kris Lemay for organizing this event! What better way to say TGIF than with French Toast Casserole, Sausage Biscuit and Gravy Casserole, donuts, fruit, blueberry bundt cake, yogurt parfaits, bacon, apple cider and coffee???!!!???
Thank you to our 4th Grade team for spreading the love today! They delivered flowers to our whole staff with a note that said, “You are awesome!” What a way to start the day!
Friday is going to be CRAZY SOCK DAY at Congin! Wear your silly or mismatched socks!
The Buddy Bench is a hit!!
It's Buddy Bench Reveal Day! We can't wait to show our students the new addition to our playground donated by the Congin School PTO! The Buddy Bench is where students can sit if they don't have a friend to play with at recess so our other Congin Cougars can see them and kindly invite them to join in some fun!
Meet and Greet Monday was a hit! Students and staff wore name tags so we could say hi to people we don't see everyday in our classes!
Who says drop off and pick up can't be fun? Not these two!
Coming soon to a backpack near you...Dental Clinic Forms! Please check backpacks for dental forms over the course of the next few school days. A date will be determined once forms are returned and we know how many students will be participating.
Don't forget WEAR GREEN WEDNESDAY next week!
Live Author Visit with Carmen Oliver at Canal School September 22 @ 6pm!
Happy first Friday from the staff at Congin! Many staff wore their new blue school district shirts, while a couple of us accidentally dressed exactly the same! 😂
Thank you for your patience as we work through the Congin arrival and dismissal kinks. We are working daily to streamline the process to make things more efficient! We're making progress each day and we thank you for being a part of keeping our students and staff safe!
Please be sure to check your child's backpack for their Parent-Teacher Connection folder. These folders come in a variety of colors, but all have the same purpose.
Substitute Teachers Needed! We have had several staff absences this week and could use some additional substitutes at Congin. We also have an opening for a 'bench sub' who works daily to cover classrooms as needed. Please go to:https://www.westbrookschools.org/page/employment to apply!
