Centaurs Take Next Step to State Playoffs
For only the second time in school history, Culver City High School's football team earned the title of CIF Southern Section Champions..

The Centaurs (12-2) defeated San Jacinto last week and now move ahead to the state playoffs when they take on San Diego's Lincoln High School at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Helms Field.

The Centaurs will rely on sophomore quarterback Zevi Eckhaus, who has passed for 3,122 yards and 46 touchdowns, and junior Nick Lucero, who has passed for 13 touchdowns and took over when Eckhaus missed two games. Wide receiver Kevin McGuire has caught 62 passes for a 17.1-yard average and 18 touchdowns, and five players have at least 29 catches.Culver City averaged 44 points and scored 612 in its first 14 games. Lincoln has a more modest 34.8 average and 417 points (not including two forfeits, when it did not have enough players to field a team).

Lincoln competes in the arguably stronger San Diego Western League with Cathedral, St. Augustine, Madison and Point Loma, but the Centaurs are on a roll, earning the 32 nd ranking in the state by Max Preps.

Let's get out there and cheer the Centaurs on to victory!
CCUSD Gets Ready for Hour of Code
With technology changing every industry on the planet, computing knowledge has become part of a well-rounded skill set. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science!

The good news is, we’re on our way to changing this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. One hundred million students have now discovered how accessible and fun computer science can be by doing just one Hour of Code.
"The Hour of Code is designed to demystify code and show that computer science is not rocket science – anybody can learn the basics," said Hadi Partovi, founder and CEO of Code.org. "Over 100 million students worldwide have tried an Hour of Code. The demand for relevant 21st-century computer science education crosses all borders and knows no boundaries."
 
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Learn more about the world of computing at www.HourOfCode.com or www.culvercoding.com and try an hour yourself! And, if you use social media, use the hashtags #culvercoding and #culverpride and show the CCUSD community your coding skills!

Stay afterwards for dinner at one of Downtown Culver City’s many restaurants, or take a stroll down the boulevards. Culver City’s downtown area is Southern California’s best kept secret, featuring a wonderful mix of historic buildings, boutiques, theaters, galleries, and unique restaurants opening on to tree-lined streets.
