Principal's Message

Principal’s Message

It is back to school time at Emerson!  I hope that all of you had a chance to enjoy summer activities, spend time with family and friends, and rejuvenate.  I am so excited to have teachers and students back in the building.  I am looking forward to an awesome year.

I would like to welcome some new faculty to the Emerson All-Star team.  We welcome Ms. Parker - kindergarten, Mrs. Morey - IP first grade, Ms. Finerfrock - IP English 2nd/3rd grade, Mr. Dadok - IP fourth grade, Ms. Feller - sixth grade, Ms. Schostek - K-1 behavior support, and Mrs. Langi - 5-6 behavior support.  I feel so lucky to have such quality educators at Emerson.

The faculty and community council have established three priorities in our school improvement plan (SIP) for this year.  The first priority is to improve students’ writing skills across all grade levels.  Our second priority is to utilize exit tickets as part of our new Eureka Math program to assess student learning and provide intervention for those students who have not mastered the concepts.  Finally, our teachers and students will explore and use mindfulness to manage toxic stress and help us to be the best teachers and learners we can be. The Emerson team will continue our collaborative conversations, learn from each other, and focus on all students learning at a high level.

At Emerson we strive to put the Salt Lake City School District vision of Equity and Excellence: Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day into action.  We are proud to be part of Team SLCSD and work collectively to meet the needs of all of our students.

I hope to see all of you at back-to-school night.  I am honored to be part of the Emerson community.  It is a privilege to serve as your principal.

Ms. Reynolds

Teacher Requests

Teacher Requests Due May 19th

Teacher requests, based upon special circumstances or student needs that should be considered, are due via email to Ms. Reynolds.   Making a teacher request does not guarantee placement in that classroom.  The sending grade level teams work together to create the class groups for the upcoming year.  Teachers consider the needs of each child, along with parent input, as they work to create balanced classes.  Please know that the teachers spend a considerable amount of time and are very thoughtful about this process.  They work to place each student in a balanced classroom where his/her educational and emotional needs can be met. We do our very best to meet the needs of all of our Emerson learners.   Thank you for supporting us in this process.


Please look under Policies and Procedures for new information on HB175 regarding volunteering.  Contact April Reynolds for addtional information if needed.


When choosing a day care for your child, you may want to ask them about transportation.  A few examples of questions are:  where is the pick up and drop off area, do they prefer morning or full day for kindergarten, do they transport early for breakfast or do they serve it at their center?  Visit the center at different times of the day, ask about activities, policies, etc.  Below are listed the day cares that have served Emerson.
