Who We Are and What We Do

The Center School Community Association (CSCA), is an educational enrichment and advocacy group that works to cultivate an excellent educational environment for all TCS students. We do this through listening to our students, families and teachers to understand and advocate for their needs in order to provide the best education possible for our students. We also engage with our community through communication with the weekly Dragon’s Fire Newsletter and the TCS Annual Auction

Dragon’s Fire Newsletter 

The Dragon’s Fire Newsletter is a time-honored tradition, published by the CSCA for The Center School community. We are happy to announce that an awesome parent has stepped up and we will now be sending out a weekly newsletter to all subscribers! 

During this time of COVID-19, we are all trying to stay on top ofthe information coming our way from SPS and TCS. By sending out this newsletteron a regular basis and updating the website, we hope to provide reliableconduits of information to the school community. And when “normal”returns, we’ll use the DF/website to keep everyone in the loop on TCS and CSCAevents, stories, and information.

New CSCA members are already subscribed to the newsletter. But if you have missed some issues or want to subscribe a different email address, you can register here for the Dragon’s Fire Newsletter .
