Parents of prospective Culver Elementary School kindergarten students are invited to attend the annual kindergarten roundup this evening at 6 p.m. in the school cafeteria. In order to be eligible for kindergarten, a child must turn 5 on or before Aug. 1. This is an informational meeting for parents, and children do not need to attend. School officials will share information with parents about required health records, forms needed for registration, kindergarten screening, Indiana curriculum standards and programs available for kindergarteners. Parents should bring a copy of their child’s birth certificate to verify the date of birth and a copy of the child’s immunization records. The early registration is critical for school officials to plan for the upcoming year’s kindergarten program. Parents who cannot attend are asked to call Culver Elementary at (574) 842-3389 or (574) 542-4017 to make other arrangements.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
