February 2022

Congaree Families,

Happy February! This is always a fun and informative month. We will experience Black History Month, Groundhog Day, Presidents Day, Read Across America Week, Valentine's Day and much more. Check Dojo and our social media for updates. The months keep rolling by and soon enough, the school year will come to an end. We have completed our first semester of school and have started our 2nd round of Lex 2.5, our after school academic support program. We have also finished up our Winter/Mid of the Year Star tests and we have seen a lot of growth with most of our students.

We still have much more growing to do to make up for the learning loss since the pandemic began, but we are making progress. We ask that you continue to get students to school on time by 7:30 and allow them to stay in school all day, every day. Please encourage your students to read something for 20 minutes each day. These are just two basic things that have been proven to improve student success.

If you are interested in high quality after school care, we highly recommend that you enroll your child in the Boys and Girls Club. This is a great option that our students love! Call the school and ask for Ms. Alexis Myers if you have any questions.

Finally, we thank you for choosing Congaree Elementary School for your child. If you have any questions or concerns about anything, please contact us. Our doors are always open. Please be safe and be on the lookout for our weekly communication.

Nurse News

Cavities, also known as caries of tooth decay, are one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood, yet cavities are preventable. Children who have poor oral health often miss more school and receive lower grades than children who don’t. Untreated cavities can cause pain, infections, and can lead to problems eating, speaking, and learning.


Good oral care in children is essential to starting a healthy lifetime habit. Children should brush their teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled child sized toothbrush and a pea-size amount of fluoride toothpaste using a circular motion.


If you need assistance in making a dental appointment, please contact Nurse Ginny. Health Room: 803-755-7450, Email: gshull@lex2.org, or on class dojo.

Celebrate Black History this month with great resources like PBS Kids. You can find thought-provoking questions to ask your child, printable activities, and inspiring activities to help celebrate this month.
