Welcome to Custer County Elementary School

Dear Parents, Students, and Families,


Welcome to Custer County Elementary School!  It is such an honor to have you participate in this exciting educational journey with us. At Custer County Elementary School we believe that we must be a  positive school with high expectations for students. Our staff is committed to providing your child with a safe and welcoming environment where we can all learn and grow each day.  


At Custer County Elementary we are the “PAWSitive Bobcats!” As part of our learning journey we embrace being responsible, respectful, safe, and productive. Please join with us in demonstrating our best Blue and Gold PAWSitive Bobcat school spirit by teaching, expecting, and modeling these behaviors with our students at school and at home.  


We believe that parents/guardians are an integral part of creating a PAWSITIVE BOBCAT culture in our school. We invite you join with us in this educational process and want you to know you are welcome here at school. You are the “first teacher” of your child. You know their needs and previous experiences. Please share those with us. We encourage all parents/guardians to be involved with school by getting to know your child’s teacher and classmates, looking over your child’s homework on a daily basis, and participating in school events. And, we would love it if you want to volunteer here at school ~ your presence is such an important message for your children that you believe in them and their school!


Thank you for being part of Custer County Elementary School. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know each and every one of you. Thank you for the opportunity to love your children!
