Crestwood Elementary is one of eight elementary schools in Rockford. Thirty-one professional teaching staff members and eight paraprofessionals serve Crestwood Elementary. Special Services personnel include a school psychologist, school social worker, gifted/talented pull-out teacher, computer consultant, speech and language therapist, occupational and physical therapists, school nurse, a resource classroom teacher, media specialists, and a reading specialist.
Before the opening of school, new families are welcomed at a PTO-sponsored event. As new families arrive, our “Welcoming Committee” contacts them to assist with any questions or concerns. Kindergarten families spend a morning with their child’s teacher, touring the school, and riding the school bus.
The school year begins with an Ice Cream Social Open House a few days before the first day of school. Parents and children meet their teacher, visit with new classmates, and enjoy ice cream. During this event, the teachers also present our curriculum packet that provides information on grade level expectations, curriculum, and related activities.
