CES May Newsletter

From the Desk of Mrs. Proskey


Parent and Guardians,

Well can you believe it? We are already coming to the close of another wonderful school year. What a year it has been?! I want to THANK YOU, the community, for all of your continuous support throughout the year. All of our teachers, parents and volunteers have worked so hard to move our students forward and make sure this was a successful and exciting year filled with Culver Pride. I am a proud administrator, a parent and a community member!!! We need to keep our efforts going in order to promote our wonderful teachers, programming, students and schools!!

I also want to give a big shout out to the parents and volunteers who help make our incentive programming that we have at the Elementary come to fruition. We value you and appreciate that you give up your valuable time throughout the day to help with BoxTop parties, R.E.A.D. parties, Book Fairs, library programming, attend field trips or just assist in the classroom either to help the teacher or simply read to a student. Without your generous donations of money, water, popsicles, food and help, these events would not be possible!! Believe it or not, the students will not remember the tests that they took but they will remember the fun they had at Culver Elementary and the difference you made in their lives! :)

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate or come in, email me at eproskey@culver.k12.in.us or call me at 574-842-3389.
