See's Candy Fund Raiser - Support our 5th Graders' trip to Outdoor Science Camp
For all current 5th graders, 6th grade is only a short time away. In El Segundo Middle School, 6th Grade students have the opportunity to attend Outdoor Science School (OSS). It is an amazing 5-day away camp which costs about $400. 5th Grade students have a See's Candies fundraising opportunity NOW to earn money to offset their cost to attend OSS next year. Selling packets are going home this week with all 5th Graders to start selling immediately. Orders with payment are due back by March 16 and candy will be delivered to students by March 26 before Spring Break and Easter. Selling See's Candies is optional, but this is the main fundraiser to offset costs for OSS. It is a great chance for 5th Graders to earn some money to help pay for their OSS cost. Anyone interested in buying See's Candies should seek out their nearest 5th Grader before March 16, or sign-up in the office.

Chat with the Principal and Superintendent Dr. Melissa Moore
A casual hour with the principal is scheduled every month at Center Street. This is a time when parents may share ideas or concerns and ask questions about their child’s education. This is a meeting with no agenda – so bring your concerns and ideas. Our superintendent, Dr. Melissa Moore, will join us at our next chat, which will be for parents of children in all grade levels. Please join us in the library on Monday, March 16th at 8:30 am.
PTA Needs You!
Would you like to be a part of the PTA and be on the board or lead a committee? The nomination committee is looking to fill some positions in the PTA. Please let us know how you would like to be involved and we will find the right fit for you depending on if you can be on campus, prefer to work from home and how many hours you can volunteer.

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.
