WHAT IS THE CONGRESSIONAL COVID COLLECTION?
The COVID Collection project was launched in early 2021 by Congressional's Head of School, Dr. Edwin Gordon. The pandemic has been an unusual situation for our whole community, and we didn't want to miss the opportunity to document it. The goal of the collection is to document the experiences of our entire school community during the COVID-19 outbreak and pandemic.
The first part of the project was to collect all logistical materials into one organized place. This included everything from campus signage to class schedules to lunch plans to bus transportation and more. The second part of the project is what you see here—the stories of the pandemic. We encourage you to take time to browse the different pages of this collection to hear from our students, our teachers and staff, and our parents and each of their unique perspectives during this time.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in this collection to help us preserve the experiences from this one-of-a-kind school year.

In addition to the sudden baking trends and Tiger King binge watching, new pets were also trending across the U.S. since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to The American Pet Products Association in its latest “COVID-19 Pulse Study,” over 11 million homes in the U.S. added a new pet during the pandemic.
To celebrate our community's new pets and the ones we already had that kept us going, we asked our families to submit photos of their pandemic pets!
