Cards for Soldiers
Did you see the big Red, White and Blue mailbox in our front office? The PTAs from all El Segundo Schools are co-sponsoring “Cards for Soldiers”, a program in which our students write heartfelt thank you notes to members of our US Military who are serving over-seas with the goal of having every soldier receive a letter at mail-call on one day. Flyers will be coming home with more information. We are hoping to have a letter from each CSS student by March 31st.
