CUHS Principal, Scott Ferguson, began by telling us that one of the prime goals for CUHS this year is to instill spirit in the students. He showed us the t-shirts that were given to each student at the start of school (thanks to the Boosters) and all are asked to wear them every Friday. He then introduced Andrew Crosby, Athletic Director, Math Teacher and Football Coach.

Andrew told us that this year the football team is getting off to a very slow start (0-3 record),
losing their first game 41-0. They have only 5 returning players and 7 of the team

members are freshmen. The team spirit last year was very low but there seems to be more excitement this year. Last year they wound up with a 5-4 record (2nd in the League). With Assistant Coaches Charlie Casale (40+ years of experience) and Trevor Neer (starter all 4 years in high school) along with help from Michael Young (10 years in the NFL) and Mark McKay (starting QB at SDSU), he is confident they will be building a winning team.

Students are saying that this year feels different. They are proud of their school and for good reason: The Cyber-Security Club is ranked 2nd in the state; FFA raised 17 animals and earned $54,000; CUHS placed 2nd in the county in Mock Trial; exceeded the standard in English in 2017 (73.69% compared to a county average of 61.62%); exceeded the standard in Math (41.38% to 35.13 for SLO County); 2017-18 League Champs in volleyball, girl’s basketball, baseball and softball.
