Retirements & New Hires....

We would like to thank Mrs. Kathy Hermanson, our corporation nurse, for all of her dedication to our staff and students throughout the years. It is bittersweet as we wish her a wonderful retirement! We are excited to welcome Mrs. Rhianon Banks, as she will be taking over Mrs. Hermanson's position.

We would also like to thank Mrs. Phyllis Napier, Culver Elementary's custodian and long time Monterey School custodian for all of her hard work throughout the years, keeping our buildings clean and ship shape for all of our students and staff. We welcome Mr. Zach Butler, as he has taken over her position as night custodian.

We wish both of these wonderful ladies well, as they enjoy their retirements- relaxing and traveling to visit family. They will truly be missed as they will always be part of the Culver family!!!

We would like to also welcome back Mrs. Julie Perkins to Culver Community Schools. She will be taking over Mrs. Thompson's position at Culver Elementary. We are excited to see what new and creative special education strategies and instruction she brings to our classrooms.

Student of The Month Lunch

We would like to thank the Lion's Club for sponsoring our December Student of the Month Luncheon last week. We ate lunch at a local Church where they so graciously cooked us their famous pancake and sausage breakfast. They also gave each child a gift. They are so kind to our students.


Weather Alerts and Notifications/ Notifying the Office when your Child is Sick

  • As the weather starts to really get chilly and students are beginning to catch the flu bug, there are a few things that we need you to remember:
  • --Please make sure that your child leaves the house appropriately dressed for the weather. We still go outside for recess even when it is pretty chilly outside.
  • --Do not drop your children off at the front door prior to 7:30. The doors do not get unlocked until the assistant gets there at 7:30.
  • --If the weather looks like it may be too treacherous for school, please check WNDU, WSBT, or FOX22 for closings or school delays. WROI, WKVI and WXVI will also be informed of closings and delays. You may also check Culver Elementary's Facebook Page. www.facebook.com/culver.elementary.school (go to the link on this page and "like" our page).
  • --If your child is absent please call Yvonne Shepherd at 574-842-3389 or email her at shepherd@culver.k12.in.us.
  • --Also remember if your child has a fever, they have to be 24 hours fever free before they come back to school. You never know when that fever may spike back up!
