Congressional provides an educational frontier experience that encourages inquisitive young minds to ask questions, and, with just the right instruction and guidance, discover not only the answers but also their potential.
Outdoor Classroom Day
On October 6, we excitedly participated in international Outdoor Classroom Day. While being privileged to have a 40-acre campus to explore every day, teachers used this opportunity to its fullest potential. Examples:
- 7th Grade Algebra searched for the Fibonacci sequence in nature
- Kindergarten students took their reading time to our Readers Garden
- 5th Grade English students let nature be their muse for some creative writing
- 1st Grade searched for signs of fall in a scavenger hunt
- 4th Grade used our amphitheater as a Readers Theater setting

Jr Kindergarten Shape Search
We found Junior Kindergarten walking around campus looking for shapes and taking photos of them with the iPads. The excitement about finding circle wheels and rectangle signs was great!
Congressional Colts Go!
