Ice Cream Social Needs YOU!

Ice Cream Social Volunteers Needed! Our biggest event of the year is coming up on June 2nd! Volunteers are still needed to make this year’s Ice Cream Social the BEST yet! Please sign up at:

Volunteers Needing in our Literacy Lab!

The Reading Lab is in the middle of a great re-levelling and re-organizing project! We have been working slowly but steadily all year and we are in the final push to get our Reading Lab books ready by the end of the school year.

We are looking for volunteers to help us sticker books, reorganize books into genre and make the Reading Lab materials (that your children use for reading all year!) even more convenient for teachers to use in their classrooms.

If you are available to help out in Room 9 during the school day, please email Kristen McCann at We will need more volunteers during the last three weeks of school, but could also use help throughout the month of April.

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.
