Welcome Back Principal's Message

Welcome back!  Summer vacation has ended and it’s back to school.  I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy summer activities, spend time with family and friends, and get some rest and relaxation.  I am so excited to have teachers and students back at Emerson.  A principal’s job gets pretty lonely during the summer months! 

The faculty and community council have established two new priorities in our school improvement plan (SIP) for this year.  The first priority is to improve our math instruction across all grade levels.  Our teachers will be working with our district math coach to receive training on effective math instructional practices and use them in their daily lessons.  Our second priority is to develop Emerson’s professional learning community (PLC).  We will continue our collaborative conversations, learn from each other, and focus on all kids learning at a high level.

At Emerson we will continue to focus on improving student attendance and begin to work on our students arriving to school on time.  We have positive classroom and school-wide interventions to put in place this year. Our goal is to have all of our kids in the classroom by eight o’clock, sharp.  Parents, please support us in our efforts.  Let’s all strive to get our students to school every day on time.  When we all work together we accomplish so much!

I am looking forward to another outstanding year at Emerson. I am honored to be part of the Emerson community.  It is truly a privilege to serve as your principal

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.
