School Goals for 2015-2016

We have established the following goals for the 2015-2016 school year: 

1.  We will provide focused instruction based on the needs of our student needs and AVID Elementary strategies.  

2.  Student performance in Mathematics will increase.  (Many students struggle with problem solving in Math because they don’t know their math facts.  

        That is one area you can help with at home. )

3.  100% of students at Congaree Elementary School will have an adult advocate.  


Please talk to your child about these goals.  

Our objective is to help each child become a proficient reader and

mathematician, and to grow into a responsible citizen.  




School Motto:

At Congaree, our character always counts!
