Dear Jane Addams Families,

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Jane Addams Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome you and your children to school year 2022-2023. Jane Addams currently has approximately 400 students in pre-kindergarten through 5th grade.

My name is Scott Wold and I am the proud principal of Jane Addams Elementary. I was previously the Instructional Math and Science Coordinator for District 89. Prior to the Instructional Coordinator position in District 89, I have spent many years in public education. I have served as the Math Facilitator for a network of 31 Chicago Public Schools and spent several years as a math teacher in Chicago. Finally, I spent many years as an Adjunct Math Professor for three universities.

The Jane Addams staff is deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. Our number one priority is to make sure your children are in a safe and positive school environment where they are inspired to achieve personal excellence. We will continue to have very high academic expectations and supports in place so that every child succeeds, along with offering many after-school clubs so that all students have an opportunity to get involved in more than just academics.

My door is always open and I look forward to a great year working with all the members of the Jane Addams Elementary School community. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (708) 450-2023 or via e-mail at [email protected].

Mr. Scott Wold
Principal, Jane Addams Elementary
