Center Street School is a California Green Ribbon School

Earth Week was a great success - topped off with the announcement that Center Street School has been named a California Green Ribbon School. PTA President, Tracey Miller-Zarneke and I accepted our award from State Superintendent of Instruction Tom Torlakson at a statewide event yesterday.

Changes that we have made to our practices, including: recycling, composting, eliminating single use water bottles, planting drought tolerant gardens, encouraging walking to school and trash free lunches all contributed to our eligibility for this award. Only 17 public schools in California received the CA Green Ribbon School Award - so we feel very proud of our accomplishment.

Thank you to Ms. Leonard for leading our Green Team and to all of the ecologically minded faculty, parents and staff who are building earth consciousness in the next generation of citizens of our planet.

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.
