Congressional Students Gather for Commencement

On Friday, June 4, Congressional School (3229 Sleepy Hollow Rd., Falls Church) honored the 31 members of its 8th grade class of 2021 at a commencement ceremony in front of an audience of family members in the school’s auditorium. The student body and extended family members watched the ceremony via live stream.

Congressional School also commemorated the end of the school year by releasing a website documenting the community’s collective journey through the pandemic.

The project is called The COVID Collection and it features a documentary, images, student work, a podcast, quotes, interviews, and statistics representing the voices and perspectives of the school’s community.

For those who want to see the project, they can do so at the school’s website at congressionalschool.org/covidcollection.
