The JRW faculty and staff would like to thank everyone who was able to attend our Open House last night! We had a great turnout! We appreciate and value very much the home-school connection. Please feel free to reach out to your child's teacher at any time.
If you were unable to make the Open House last night, please contact either your child's teacher or the JRW office to schedule a time for student-parent-teacher conferences, which are coming up on Thursday, October 10th.
We would also like to extend an enthusiastic thank you for all of the support of our One School One Book program. With your generosity we raised almost $800 to continue our efforts with literacy initiatives!
Congratulations to Karen Taylor, the SEF raffle winner of the reserved parking spot for the year right outside the main doors!
Somonauk #432 Preschool Screening
What is Preschool Screening?
To help identify children ages 3-5 who may qualify for special education services Somonauk CUSD 432 offers preschool screening. Our screening team will briefly assess your child’s developmental skills in the areas of pre-academic learning concepts, motor skills, and communication, as well as hearing and vision. If you suspect that your child is experiencing one or more delays in her or his development, please contact James R. Wood Elementary school.
Screening dates for the '19-'20 school year
To schedule an appointment or ask questions related to screening you can call (815)498-2338 ext 1224. Screenings are held at Somonauk Public Library . Screening appointments are available afternoons on the following dates:
October 10, 2019
February 7, 2020
April 3, 2020
What to expect at the screening:
Screening consists of three components. Your child will have his/her vision and hearing tested. Family health history may also be reviewed at this time. Your child’s development will be assessed using the Brigance Preschool Screen. Your child’s language and communication skills will then be assessed by a speech pathologist.
*Please bring your completed questionnaires with you to your appointment.
What happens after screening?
Upon completion of the screening, a team member will meet with you to review your child’s results. If your child demonstrated developmentally appropriate skills no further action is required, if the team determines there are areas of concern, a further evaluation may be recommended.
