New Marquee

CSS has a beautiful stained glass cougar welcoming families to our school. The work was designed by Janet Read (“retired” CSS teacher and mother of Presley) and crafted by Michael “Percy” Pirsztuk of The Glass Idea Co. in El Segundo. Thank you to PTA for helping us make this a reality – and YES our cougar is sharing his habitat with a blue butterfly! We are united in nature and in our El Segundo community.

School Site Council Meeting

September 27th at 3 pm will be our first meeting of this school year. SSC is responsible for implementing a five goal school plan and allocating state School Improvement Program funds in a manner that will strengthen instruction and learning and further improve our school culture. It is an excellent venue to learn about the challenges Center Street faces, the strategies put in place to produce results, and the many achievements of the students, teachers and staff. All parents and teachers are welcome to our meetings and minutes are posted on our website.

Volunteer at CSS!

A big piece of what makes our school the BEST is the commitment of our families. There are so many opportunities to volunteer at school – so if you want to become more involved, check out the PTA volunteer page: http://csspta.com/volunteer/ways-to-get-involved/ or email volunteer@csspta.com.
