Welcome to the room 9 family!

This is the Developmental Learning Center at Crestwood Elementary for K-2nd graders.  We are a small class with awesome potential! We are made up of unique learners striving to grow in all areas: physically, academically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. The website was created as an additional communication tool to access the class calendar and as a monthly updates to all the things we are doing.  

This year we will be studying all we can learn about all the countries and people around the world.  Each month we will focus on a continent and by the end of the year each student will have their own portfolio of their activities and knowledge gleaned from our year long study.  Parents, family, and friends will be invited to a formal production and exhibition of our studies in June and then partake in a shared lunch time and field day.  

Here are some areas posted on this site.

  • Class Calendar
  • New letters or sight words introduced
  • New words taught in exact sign language
  • Show'N'Tell themes
  • Upcoming events needing permission slips or to do items
  • Theme of the week
  • Updates on our "Around the World in 180 days"

I am so blessed to be the room 9 teacher.  If you have any questions you can call the school at 253-891-4550 or email me at jo_cooksley@sumnersd.org.
