Superintendent's Message

August 16, 2019


Dear CCUSD Families,


I am excited to welcome you back for another incredible school year. The first day of school is Thursday, August 22, 2019. The beginning of school is always an exciting time because it signifies a new start and a beginning to infinite possibilities.


We rely upon and are always appreciative of the incredible support that we have from our parents in CCUSD.  We want you to be involved in your child’s education in anyway that you can! If you have the ability to volunteer, please consider donating some of your time in our classrooms, be an active or contributing member of your child’s PTA or Booster Club, or to the districtwide Culver City Education Foundation (CCEF). There is always a need for additional help! Being involved and supportive of your child’s education also includes staying in communication with your child’s teachers, attending Back to School nights, spending time reading with your child, providing a designated place for studying, and establishing morning and evening routines for your child. These are all helpful ways to create a strong start and maintain continued success throughout the school year.


As a school district, we will continue to work tirelessly to make our schools places where our students want to come everyday to challenge themselves, to meet new friends, to achieve as learners and, most importantly, feel included, affirmed and validated. We deeply care about the success of your children and we are fortunate to have the care and support of a school community that is equally committed. We must all work together to model for our children the importance of respect, inclusion, compassion, and courage so that they embody these values and apply them within their own growing lives.


Welcome to the  2019- 2020 school year! I look forward to partnering with you in our work to make your child’s educational journey a successful one!


Sincerely and Proudly,

Leslie Lockhart
