School Happenings

I wanted to send a quick note to let you know all about the fabulous events your PTA is preparing for the littles to enjoy throughout this year!  While we are all working hard to find a sense of normalcy in this new time, the PTA team have spent a lot of time changing some of our Cougars’ favorite events to adapt to this new school year.  

Please explore this webpage for various topics, as well for our full calendar which is where you will find each month’s general PTA meetings.  For the time being these meeting will all take place via Zoom, and the links will be posted, here, on the main CSSPTA webpage 24 hours prior to meeting.  When you attend these meetings you will hear about: budgets, chair position openings, details of any upcoming events, and get to know each of us more in depth.  Be sure to JOIN PTA prior to the meeting! We would love to see new faces!

Here is a breakdown of some events on the calendar:

Run 4 Education August 28th thru September 7th:  This run will be virtual and you get the opportunity to run/jog/walk on your own accord.  This fundraiser goes to all schools!  Come out and support!  Register at: ESRUN4EDUCATION.COM

Jog-A-Thon October 5th thru October 23rd:  This event is one of our Cougar’s favorite!  It will look a little different this year, but we are so excited that we can bring the Jog-A-Thon virtually to our kiddos!  More details to come as our Jog-A-Thon team is working hard to get all the details perfect!

Red Ribbon Week October 26th thru October 30th:  We have a special assembly that will be done virtually on October 28th with Blake Brandes!  The kiddos will have an assembly during the day and there will be a parent night to conclude the event.  More details to come!

Art Night December 9th:  We are working on an art night for our Cougars! It will be a Zoom meeting and you will pick up supplies at school the day of the event! 

Book Fair March 8th thru March 12th: We are super excited to offer our book fair to our students.  We are hoping to be in person, but if not, we have the ability to do it virtually!  More details to come.

Story Pirates is bringing something truly exciting to our kiddos.  This is one of the kids’ favorite nights on campus and we’re so excited that they’re creating a virtual platform for us to enjoy! We will be finalizing a date in the upcoming weeks.

Ice Cream Social June 4th:  We are hoping to still have some form of Ice Cream Social this year!  No matter what it looks like, we want to celebrate the kids and let them know we are proud of all the hard work they will have done this year!  

In addition to all these dates, each month our amazing nutrition and character counts chairs will be creating something for our students to do at home.  These lessons will help give the kids a look into mindfulness with their physical health and their mental health.  We thank both chairs for working so hard on these lessons!

These are just a few things to let your Cougars know are on the horizon!  We are really looking forward to this year!  If you have any questions or would like to send me any creative ideas for the upcoming year please reach out to me at 

Looking forward to this school year as your CSS PTA President,

Heather Sutherland
