CSS Shared Vision

In partnership with students, families and our community, we challenge all students to achieve excellence, become college and career ready, and make a positive impact in a global society.

Siempre demostraremos nuestro Pretzel pride siendo cuidadosos, respetuosos, y responsables en nuestra escuela Carl Sandburg

They are available in the main office or from Mrs. Hodges. Thank you to the students who have already submitted their applications.

  • Attention all boys and girls. Starting on Monday March 16th, you will be able to attend basketball practices at the Carl Sandburg gym designed to increase your skills and abilities. All fifth and sixth grade girls can attend on Mondays and Wednesdays while the fifth and sixth grade boys can attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This will run for seven weeks with no practices during spring break. You only have to attend those dates that work for you. Please bring your friends and learn the game of basketball.


  • With a couple weeks left until Spring Break, we will be focusing on behaviors that are seen as insubordination and disruptive conduct.  Insubordination is defined as when a student engages in a refusal to follow directions or shows open disrespect to school personnel. Disruptive conduct is when a student engages in behavior that causes a substantial disruption to the learning environment.  Focus on following expectations and being safe, respectful and responsible.
