Principal's Message

Principal’s Message

Thank you for getting this school year off to a great start. I believe we are all finally settling into a nice rhythm at Emerson. Thanks to our wonderful PTA and everyone who donated to the Emerson Walk-a-Thon. Money raised during this event goes right back to the classrooms to support student learning. The event was a huge success and students and teachers had a fun morning full of physical activity, and music. Our DJ was amazing. I didn’t know that Emerson students were such amazing dancers…impressive! On October 15th and 16th, Emerson will be conducting our fall SEP conferences and Scholastic Book Fair. We look forward to meeting with each of our students and their families to talk about academic progress and to set goals for this school year. While you are here, stop in the library for the book fair. I hear the suckers are best sellers.Save the date for our annual Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration that will take place on November 2nd from 5:30-8:00. This is a huge community cultural event. You won’t want to miss it! Finally, thank YOU for all of the parental support you provide to our students and teachers. It is what make Emerson Elementary so awesome.

Ms. Reynolds

  • SCC meetings are typically held the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 5:30 PM. Members are asked to commit to attending all or most of the meetings.
  • The location may rotate between the school library and SLC Library locations.
  • A caregiver/guardian member is elected to serve a 2-year term (school years 2018-19 and 2019-20).
  • SCC members help develop a school improvement plan, plan for how School LAND Trust Program monies are spent, and discuss other issues related to the school.
  • Members from all demographic groups and with children in any program (Neighborhood, IP, and Behavioral Support) are encouraged to run.
  • Light food, child care, and transportation to meetings may be available if needed.

Eureka Math

Eureka Math Parent Resources

Your involvement in your child’s education can have a significant impact on his or her success in school.  That is why the teacher-writers who developed the curriculum, also created a suite of parent support resources that will help you support your child at homework time. These resources include:

• Homework Helpers — A grade-level resource that provides step-by-step explanations of how to work problems similar to those found in Eureka Math homework assignments. There is a Homework Helper to go with every homework assignment in the curriculum.

• Parent Tip Sheets — Topic-level tip sheets that explain math strategies and models provide key vocabulary, sample problems, and links to useful videos.

Watch for a Eureka Math parent letter to come home with your student.  This resource will provide step-by-step directions on how you can create an online account so that you can start accessing these fantastic resources.

Safe Schools

Dear SLCSD Families,

 

Excellence and Equity: Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day: this is our vision statement for the Salt Lake City School District (SLCSD). We are committed to achieving this vision and ensuring ALL students in our district obtain a quality education.  

 

We believe in our students and in their hopes, dreams, and potential. Our schools and our students are strengthened by our district’s diversity. SLCSD embraces and supports all of our students, regardless of background, race, ethnicity, or any other factor. And we will continue to champion our students and families, and to welcome and teach every single child who enters our school doors.

 

In January 2017, the SLCSD Board of Education passed a Safe School Resolution affirming our district’s commitment to our students and our schools. During these uncertain times, we appreciate the support of our teachers and our parents in having conversations with students about current events and reassuring them that school will always be a safe space.

 

Below are some tips to help adults talk with children about these important yet challenging topics:

 

  • Don’t be afraid to talk to children about recent events that appear in the news and on social media.
  • Promote a sense of safety by acknowledging current events, and ask children if they have any questions or concerns they would like to talk about.
  • Use age-appropriate language (i.e. talk to elementary-school-aged children about the importance of being a good friend and valuing each other’s differences).
  • Share experiences, when appropriate.
  • Model good behavior, such as being supportive of other cultures.
  • Share ideas about how our children can respond to those who are displaying inappropriate behavior.

During the school year, SLCSD administrators and counselors are a good resource to assist teachers and parents in addressing any concerns that may arise when speaking to children. We in SLCSD will never stop doing what is right for ALL of our students.

 

Yours in education,

 

Lexi Cunningham, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Salt Lake City School District

 

DAY CARES SERVING EMERSON
