Ways to get Involved

Center Street School has volunteer opportunities
just about every day on campus.

Please contact volunteer@csspta.com if you are interested in helping.  You can volunteer for any committee needing help (like Cougars Run, Trash Free Tuesday, Jog-a-thon, Ice Cream Social and more!).  Also check out Safety Patrol & Cougar Patch pages to signup to help for your classroom’s designated days/times.

Jog-a-Thon: This is an event where all hands are required and there is really something for everyone: setup the day before, food stations, track monitors, etc…https://signup.com/go/CSSJogathon2019

In the classroom:

Character Counts – Please volunteer to help as a classroom docent. For 20-40 minutes (dependent on grade level and teacher’s schedule), docents give lessons on character like trustworthiness, fairness, citizenship and more. Our Character Counts Chair and team gives ideas and guidance where needed. https://signup.com/go/CSSCharacterCounts2019

Cougar Patch/Garden Docent – Our garden docent program is made up of 1 or 2 parents per classroom who are available to come and help support or garden. Check out the Cougar Patch page for full details…We have monthly lessons by our garden partner – Palos Verdes School Gardens and we need parents to assist. You can read our Parent Volunteer  Garden Handbook and then reach out to garden@csspta.com for more information.

Room Parent – Help your student’s teacher by volunteering to be a room parent.  You will help with coordinating activities and communication for your classroom.  Always fun to team up with another parent too! https://signup.com/go/CSSRoomParents2019
