Class Size Matters
As part of Culver City Unified's ongoing commitment to excellent learning experiences for all, we're proud to feature class sizes well below state recommendations and similar to that of leading private schools with healthy endowments and huge reserves. This is because CLASS SIZE MATTERS.  And the younger the student, the smaller the class needs to be to provide individualized attention and differentiated instruction.  As more and more families with school-aged children buy homes and enroll in Culver City Schools, we're looking forward to hiring teachers where needed and keeping classes small and manageable for the benefit of every student, teacher, and family in CCUSD.
Growing Up Intercultural In Culver City
Students from Dr. Valverde's Intercultural Literature class at Culver City High School were invited to participate in a panel discussion last week about what it's like to grow up intercultural in Culver City and how students from different backgrounds perceive their school, city, and surroundings.  The discourse was valuable, and further proof that as diverse as we are, there's always work to be done when it comes to serving our youth.
We're A National Green Ribbon District
After being selected to move on from this year's State Honors, the Culver City Unified School District has now been named a Green Ribbon District by the U.S. Department of Education.  Our community-wide commitment to sustainability is strong; and with students, teachers, parents, and staff leading the way, we're looking forward to having an even greater impact on our environment and schools in years to come. 
CCMS Lacrosse Championships Wednesday
At 5pm, on the Culver City High School Lacrosse Field, the CCMS Boys Lacrosse Team with compete against Sierra Canyon for the Delphic League Championship.  Home Field advantage matters, and having community support for the game with tons of fans in attendance will go a long way towards our boys winning the match.   #CULVEPRIDE
"Culver City, Here I Come..."
In case you needed another reason to love of our schools, check out some current and former CCUSD dads as they sing their praises for Culver City at last week's Honorary Service Awards presented by Council PTA.  This is the "Heart Of Screenland," after all.
Relationships Are Everything
Pictures like these sum up everything it means to have a meaningful school experience.  From the smile on their faces, to taking the time to memorialize the moment with a picture, it's clear that the relationships between students and the adults who support them have the ability to drastically change life outcomes and influence young people forever.
Team Prime Time Is About More Than Winning
 Playing in its very first Team Prime Time basketball game, Culver City found itself down by 10 points with just under 5 minutes left.  Of course, Team Prime Time has long been more about inclusivity and relationships than winning, and it became a byproduct that Culver City won the game on a last-second buzzer beater in its basketball debut.  What mattered was that everyone got to play, all had fun, and the memories will last forever.
Our Social Media Has Been Busy...
Boys & Girls Track Win Ocean League!
Culver City Boys and Girls Track & Field took home the Ocean League Championship Cup last week as they dominated their competitors all season long.  Since many of our athletes are two-sport stars, this showing definitely bodes well for all of Culver City athletics.  CIF Playoffs start this week, and we're looking forward to our Centaurs representing the entire school at track meets throughout the remainder of the year.
