The ISTEP+ Experience

As the year has flown by we are at that dreaded time again..... ISTEP+ Testing. Therefore, I would like to welcome you to practice a sample test with your child and family. You may choose to turn it into a game like "Are you smarter than a 3rd grader?" and have some family fun. Practicing the format and encouraging problem solving will help your child do their best.

Click HERE to begin.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Proskey or Mrs. Coldiron @ 574-842-3389.

The practice doesn't give you the answers so feel free to take a picture of each response with your computer or smart phone and then check it HERE later. DON'T PEEK! If you are interested in finding out more, please visit the Indiana Department of Education website at

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 and WXVI will also be informed of closings and delays. You may also check Culver Elementary's Facebook Page. (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
  • 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!
