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.

­Principal’s Message

Here we are at the end of another amazing year at Emerson Elementary!  As we head off for our summer adventures, I have some news and updates to share. 

One of the priorities at Emerson this year was to improve student attendance, decrease the number of tardies, and preserve instructional time.  We made great progress!  In addition, our school community council (SCC) and faculty worked together to create a new tardy procedure.  We believe it has proven to be a positive change and look forward to continuing it next year.  Thank you for working with us to achieve our goal!

We have set some new goals and made some minor changes for next year.  Emerson’s school improvement plan (SIP) for next year will focus on improving our professional learning community (PLC) and using effective mathematical instructional practices in our classrooms.  The School LAND Trust Plan continues to focus on intervention and support for struggling learners. Our Beverly Taylor Sorenson arts grant emphasis will shift next year to a school-wide focus on music.  Finally, Emerson’s SCC has made some revisions and refinements to our dress code policy.  Look for this information when you register for school in August.  I want you to know how lucky I feel to be a part of this dynamic Emerson community.  I am amazed by what we can achieve if we all work together and keep our focus on kids.

Students, now for your homework!  While you are enjoying your summer break, incorporate what you have learned about reading, writing, math, and science into your fun activities.  First of all, read, read, and keep reading!  This is the best thing we can do to maintain our skills.  Find fun ways to include math calculation and problem solving in your daily activities.  Science is all around us!  Make observations and draw conclusions about things in nature we see every day.  Write about your summer experiences.  Keep a journal or write a letter to your principal.  Be creative!  Most importantly, have fun, enjoy your time with family and friends, and refresh and recharge.  We will be back at Emerson before we know it! 

Wishing you all a wonderful summer break.  Now, get out there and show your awesomeness!

Ms. Reynolds
