Art Competition

The Culver City Walk & Rollers Safe Routes to School Art Competition

Nearly 30% of our students are driven to school every day. This not only adds to the traffic and pollution around schools, but kids miss out on opportunities to learn about traffic safety, community awareness and responsibility.

We think there are better ways to get to school and we’d like to hear from CCUSD students.
