CCUSD Special Education Department
to Offer Parent Workshops
In partnership with the CCUSD Special Education District Advisory Committee, the Special Education department will be offering two workshops for parents of students in Special Education this spring. Please fill out this five- question survey to help inform and guide our offerings for the 2017-2018 school year:

Culver City High School Students
Honored at MLK Day Event
Five local students, including two Culver City High School students, were presented with education awards by The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Westside Coalition at its annual MLK Day Celebration.

Congratulations to Isabel Cortes (Culver City High School), Emma Fabros (Culver City High School), May Kono (Santa Monica High School), Malaysia Long (Lawndale High School) and Andrew Rodriguez (Susan Miller Dorsey High School), who were honored at an event that featured guest speaker Tommie Smith (pictured above).

The Olympic runner, who 50 years ago thrust his fist into the air at the 1968 Olympic games in Mexico City, addressed the audience inside World Peace Ikeda Auditorium on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Westside Coalition was founded in 1986 in partnership with the City of Culver City, SMC, Westside Interfaith Council, NAACP Santa Monica Venice Branch, and other organizations. Their mission state is “to educate adults and youth, to inspire community participation, and to promote the ideals of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for understanding, knowledge and healing.”
Backpacks for Kids Program Seeks Volunteers
The Culver City Backpacks for Kids program is seeking volunteers for the Rain Barrel Distribution this Saturday, January 20 from 7:30am to noon at West LA college to raise funds for the program.

The group is seeking people to help with registration, traffic direction and barrel distribution. Please email meganbackpacks@gmail.com if you are interested in helping.

Collecting rainwater and storing it in a rain barrel can help offset drinking water used for outdoor purposes. Using rainwater helps reduce the amount of pollution which flows into nearby storm drains, sewers and waterways and then eventually into the ocean. Rain barrels also contribute in making sure that local water supplies are being used more efficiently.

West Basin Municipal Water District is committed to reducing the region's reliance on imported water supplies and encourages customers to utilize local water sources such as rainwater, whenever possible. For more information on how to get your rain barrel, please visit www.westbasin.org/rainbarrels
Support CCUSD Schools, Run the Screenland 5K
Run with your family and friends through exciting downtown Culver City, along Culver and Washington Boulevards and help raise money for CCUSD schools.

Proceeds from the March 4 race will benefit the Culver City Education Foundation and its efforts to improve our schools.

Start on Culver Boulevard and Main Street – “The Shortest Main Street in the U.S.” –
Run past the Historic Culver Hotel where the Munchkins stayed while filming “The Wizard of Oz” down the street at the former MGM, now Sony Pictures. Follow the course as it winds down Culver and Washington Boulevards! Pass near Culver City’s own Metro Expo Line station which is being redeveloped as Ivy Station as an exciting mixed use facility with shops, restaurants, a hotel and ample parking for all.
Culver City is truly “The Heart of Screenland,” so come in costume representing your favorite movie character. Start under the Rainbow and finish on the Red Carpet into Media Park where you will join fellow finishers to celebrate your accomplishment. Wear your finisher medal proudly.
