Christmas Door Decorating Contest

Before the Holiday Break, we had every class participate in a door decorating contest for a prize from the CSI PTA! With help from our wonderful students & parents, the teachers’ doors were transformed.  The winners were chosen and announced on Thursday, December 15th and here are the results:

4th Grade – Ballew & Martel

5th Grade – Christian & Mayes

6th Grade – Jackson & Kingsley

Thanks for everyone helping in making the Holidays a fun time at CS Intermediate!

Box Tops for Education

We have raised over $750.00 this fall collecting Box Tops. That is $750.00 that goes directly to your child's homeroom teacher and is used directly for classroom use! Help us continue collecting Box Tops for even more money for your child's classroom in the spring!

Reading Igloo

Our school is working on creating a fun reading environment for your child.  For that to happen, we need your help.  Please bring any CLEANED OUT milk jugs to aide in the creation of our “Reading Igloo”. Thanks for your help!

If you student wears pants that DO NOT have pockets, their shirt but go below their bottom in the front and the back. It does not need to be finger-tip length, but it does need to go past their rear.


With your 2016-2017 PTA Memberships, the PTA has already been able to do some pretty incredible things for the Intermediate.  They purchased a Die-Cut Machine, Poster Maker, and a new Laminator for CSI!! Thanks for all your support!


Make donations in our World Wear Collection Bin at Griff’s and near our Gaga Ball pit!! This bin will earn us extra money all year long for every pound donated. Lots of items can be donated including clothing, shoes, belts, purses, wallets, hats, backpacks, toys, stuffed animals, and pots and pans. So make time to get those donations in. 


We currently have an incredible amount of lunchboxes on our lost & found table.  Please encourage your student to look through everything to locate lost belongings, as we donate items at the end of every six weeks.
