A little extra information:

Wondering if your young child is developing on target? Parents as Teachers has a FREE screening for that!

Developmental screenings offer parents a quick and effective way to look at how their child is learning and growing in the areas of health, vision, hearing, communication, physical development, problem-solving, and social-emotional development. Annual screening is available for children living within the JCPS district boundaries who are between 4 months and 5 years of age (who are not yet in kindergarten). For more information about screening or to sign your child up, please visit the screening portion of the JCPS Parents as Teachers (PAT) website at or contact Katie Epema, PAT Coordinator at or 659-2350.


Please let me know if there is a different email you would like the newsletters sent to.
