We are so proud of these two students, Felica and Vanessa, for helping those in need. The cottage supervisors gave them a PAWS certificate for going out of their way to give food and drinks to the homeless. They were recogized by a teacher who was in the area witnessing them caring for others. Thank you young ladies for your lovely thoughtfulness. #csdr #csdrkindness

Riverside mourns the loss of an international Deaf hero, Gerald “Bummy” Burstein. Bummy passed away Friday evening August 31, 2018 at the age of 91 in his hometown, Riverside, CA.

A native of "Brooklyn, USA", his love of the Brooklyn Dodgers “Dem Bums” gave him the nickname “Bummy.” On the contrary, Bummy has led an active life making great contributions to the community. Bummy graduated from Gallaudet University in 1950 and became a teacher for Deaf children.  After 52 years as teacher and administrator, which included 37 years at CSDR, he retired.  During his retirement years he remained a staunch supporter of education for Deaf children and youth.

In recognition of Bummy's leadership and generosity, CSDR honored him in February 2010 with the establishment and dedication of the Gerald "Bummy" Burstein Student Center.

Upon learning of his passing, Superintendent Nancy Hlibok Amann stated, "It is our commitment to make sure Bummy's legacy lives on." Information regarding a memorial service for Bummy will be made available at a later date.
Ty was reading a book at the cafeteria earlier this week. A reminder to pick up a book and read, regardless of where you are during the Labor Day weekend! #csdr #csdrliteracy #acceleratedreader
Kevin Struxness gave an inspirational presentation to HS students today about how he committed to earning a good education at CSDR and how he, from humble beginnings, amassed a million dollars by investing every month for 30 years, which he will give to CSDR for a permanent endowment fund. Students cheered loudly at this great role model and benefactor! #csdr #csdrkindness
Our High School students received these awesome backpacks as a welcome back to school gift from the school and ASBG. These backpacks were given to students so that they could have something to put in their new iPads and student planners. This year the High School theme is "Improvement begins with 'I'." We look forward to watching everyone from the students to the teachers and staff work on improving themselves and each other in every way possible! #csdr #csdrkindness
