    • I would like to welcome you and your child to Culver Elementary School. Our school is full of knowledge, enthusiasm, creativity, rigor, support and encouragement. Our dedicated teaching staff and support personnel strive to provide for each student’s individual needs. We encourage your support and assistance throughout the school year so that your child will have a successful and rewarding experience here at CES.

      We always encourage parents to be a positive partner in their children’s education. Make it known to your child that you value education. Let your child see you supporting his or her endeavors here at school by attending programs, volunteering to be a chaperone on field trips, helping out with classroom activities, or most importantly, talking to your child about school and the importance of it.

      It is a pleasure to have you as a member of our Culver family. We are looking forward to working with each and every one of you, as we embrace the new school year. We strive to continue to build on the tradition of academic excellence and provide each child with a positive learning experience.

      This upcoming year brings some new and exciting changes to Culver Elementary School:
      • Mrs. Risner will be the Media Specialist/Librarian.
      • Mrs. Smith will be teaching general music.
      • Mrs. Berndt will be teaching gym.
      • Ms. Claxon will be our new third grade teacher.
      • Ms. Surma will be our new second grade teacher.
      • Mrs. Coldiron will be our new School Counselor/Dean of Students.

      We’re excited to announce that we have been rated an “A” school for both the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school year and that the U.S. Department of Education has chosen Culver Elementary School as a recipient of the 2015 President’s Education Awards Program. We have been honored for our educational excellence and academic growth in the classroom. We would like to thank all of our teachers, staff, and parents for all of your never ending hard work and dedication to our students. You are all amazing at what you do and I (Mrs. Proskey), the students, and the corporation are so very grateful!

      If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call, email, or stop in. Best wishes for a successful year!!!

We have 35 certified teachers on staff with the support of 28 additional personnel who serve as secretaries, classroom assistants, cooks and custodians.
