Center Street School is being recognized as one of the 772 California Gold Ribbon Schools for 2016. The award reflects our school’s success in creating a positive learning atmosphere for students. Such success is a direct result of dedicated, creative, and talented staff, and our supportive school community.
Our School Site Council Parent Survey is now open. The information that we receive from parents is very important to us and is used as we make decisions that impact your child's experience at Center Street. Please take a few minutes to complete our survey for each child who attends CSS. The survey is anonymous and will be open until 3:00 pm on Tuesday, April 19th. You may access the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CSSParentSurvey2016 or you may ask for a paper copy from the school office staff. (Please click on the headline above for the active link)

This is a fun and exciting event for our entire school as we work together to raise money for the American Heart Association and save lives! Check your students backpack for the letter and donation envelopes!
We are asking all of our families to register online- it’s easy and fun for you and your child!
You can sign up now by following these quick, easy steps to get started raising money and saving lives!
1. Go to www.heart.org/jump
2. Choose our CA and El Segundo.
3. Select our school and join team.
5. Puppify your child and send 10 emails with a few clicks of the mouse
Your students will be telling you about the Lifesaver puppies, so we wanted to fill you in! Each puppy teaches the kids a new way to protect their heart and avoid risk factors for heart disease and stroke. Your student can earn all 6!
There is a coupon on your donation envelope that can be turned in once your student raises $5.00. They will get Super Pup at school that week. If that donation is made online, they will also get a second puppy, Ninja Star. Any student who reaches $85 online will get Martia N. Mutley.
Win an iPad mini and $50 in iTunes gift cards!!
• Your student will be entered in a drawing held on June 17th to win an iPad Mini if they receive 10 or more online donations before the drawing.
• Weekly $50 iTunes Gift Card Drawings: Your student will earn one entry for every $25.00 they raise online prior to our event on April 29th.
