Staff Appreciation

During the Week of May 3rd we will be celebrating our staff at Center Street.  Their lounge will be transformed into a First Class Snack Lounge, there will be a local scavenger hunt around town where you can take selfies and load your image with teacher tag onto Padlet  to get  your teacher extra entries into the daily prize raffles, as well as a raffle at the end of the week for student participants to win a prize!  The staff will also have 3 food deliveries from local eateries during the week in addition to an on-campus self-care activity too!!!

Here is what you need to know to be best prepared and get things done ahead of time, so MARK YOUR CALENDAR:

Weekend of May 1st and 2nd:  Head to CSS with your own chalk and decorate outside your teacher’s classroom a heartfelt message.  Also some time this weekend print out your child’s Bitmoji teacher to take around with you on the scavenger hunt AND setup your child’s Zoom virtual background for Monday…maybe even have a family Zoom to test it out.  Zoom download page will be live Friday, April 30.

Monday items: By 8:15a on May 3rd have your child logged into his/her morning  Zoom with his/her virtual background set.

By end of day have your child’s postcard(s) for teacher and any additional staff delivered to  drop box at TSAW Chair’s house (@760 Sheldon Street).

Tuesday:  Prepare for Cinco de Mayo early!  On May 4th, El Segundo’s El Gringo on Main Street will be hosting a Dine & Give!  Mention CSS (Center Street School) when you dine in/order out and 20% will be donated back to the 4th Grade Class fund collection for their promotion next year.  MAY THE FOURTH be with you!

Wednesday items:  Have your child dress/represent teacher’s destination of choice.  Your room parent will have given this info to you.

By end of day Wednesday, May 5th have your contribution to the teacher’s suitcase delivered to your porch parent.   Your room parent will have provided you with a list of all your teacher’s favorites, as well as your substitute’s if you have one currently in your class.

Keep up-to-date on all of the week’s activities, gifts, sponsors, shoutouts, scavenger clues, etc by following CSS PTA Facebook page.

Thanks to all who have contributed to the Monthly Mailbox Surprises that the TSAW and Hospitality Chair have been doing.  We’ve received everything that we need for the remainder of the year!  Here’s a look at what’s been distributed so far:

We hit the JACKPOT with this staff and we DONUT know what we’d do without them!
CSS is one of a KIND. Thank you to Laura Kalty for donating the bars.
Our staff is still  Number 1 in our Book. Thank you to the Graziano, Torre and Williams families for all the notebooks for the staff.

Thank you to the Baker, Huie, Keldorf, O’Connor and Snow families for purchasing/contributing to these holiday mugs and tumblers that were gifted to the staff this holiday season…and we couldn’t have filled the staff’s hearts and souls if it weren’t for the the generous CSS families that “adopted” a staff member with a gift card to his/her favorites. So thankful for everyone for making this “Hug in a Mug” a successful gifting program this December.
Thankful for a community, that even in a tough time, appreciates those that are going the extra mile. Blimpies donated over 50 subs to the CSS staff this month.
Special Thank You to the Drottz and Williams families for donating the items for November’s surprise gift!
We kicked off October with this cute surprise bundle of a Cougars car magnet, post-it notes and  a candy sweet!
