Congressional School is known for its vibrant community and family-like atmosphere, and parent involvement is an essential ingredient. The mission of the Congressional School Parent Organization (CSPO) is to “Welcome Families and Build Community” and accomplishes this through planning and hosting various large, fun, social events and activities and by supporting teachers as Room Parents and volunteers.
In addition, the CSPO helps to facilitate proactive communication between the school and families. All parents are CSPO members.
