News and Announcements


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.

Parent Input re: Scheduling Siblings and/or Learning Pods

We are in the process of aligning schedules of siblings and students who will be sharing childcare outside of school. Please fill out this form if you have siblings that you would like to have in school on the same days or if you have a "learning pod" who will be working together on non-in person school days. We will do our best to group these students together. Please fill out one form for each child in your family. Please complete prior to August 13th. Thank you.

Grades of Green

We invite you to join us for Trash Free Tuesdays by clicking on this link and picking a Tuesday (or two) that you can volunteer during the lunch period which runs from 11.00 am - 1,15 pm. You can sign up for one hour or the whole time - we would love to see you there, and so would the kids! We also welcome help Thursday and Friday afternoons to help pack up the Terracycle juice pouch collection and/or to mix the compost. We collect the following items to divert them from the landfill: juice pouches, ink jet containers, used crayons and used markers. Please deposit these items in the Grades of Green box in the quad at your convenience.

Calling all readers! We hope you will participate in our first annual Literacy Lanterns!

Here is what you will do:
1. Choose a favorite book character.
2. Pick out a perfect pumpkin.
3. Decorate your pumpkin to look like that favorite character.
4. Bring your pumpkin to the CSS Library between October 3rd and October 26th.
5. Include an index card, attached to your pumpkin, with your first and last name, grade and teacher.

All Literacy Lanterns will be displayed in the CSS Library during the month of October. Winners will be chosen to help lead the Halloween Parade on October 31st, here at CSS!
