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.
