“THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE IF…”
Dear Emerson Families,
The National PTA Reflections program is PTA’s cornerstone arts program. It
offers students the opportunity to earn local, state and even national recognition for
the original artwork they create in response to a specific theme. Students who
participate get an opportunity to explore the arts and culture, develop creative
thinking and problem-solving skills and recognize themselves as artists. Categories
include Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Musical Composition,
Photography, Visual Arts and Three Dimensional (Utah PTA level only).
Entry forms, Consent forms and specific rules for each category are available
in the classrooms, school office or online at www.utahpta.org/reflections. If you
really want your artwork to be eligible for continuing on to the Region, State &
National level you must follow the rules closely. Incomplete entry forms will not be
entered into the contest.
Deadline: October 14, 3:00pm
Entries can be turned in to the office or your classroom.
If you have questions about Reflections you can call the school office 801-481-4819
and leave a message. I will return your call. Or you can email

As you are shopping for school clothes, please refer to district policy on inappropriate clothing at school. We have a limited supply of replacement clothing for the day, but would appreciate a double check before kids are scooted out the door.
The dress code: Clothing should be neat, clean, and appropriate for learning and weather conditions, and at no time should it cause a disruption to the learning environment. School administrators will determine consequences for students who violate the dress code and will provide appropriate due process. Parents may be called to bring the student a suitable change of clothing. Parents are also expected to observe the dress code whenever they are in the building.
The following would be considered in violation of the dress code:
• Clothing that is low enough to reveal a student’s underwear
• Clothing advertising drugs, alcohol, tobacco, acts of violence or lawlessness
• Clothing associated with gangs, illicit drugs, or illegal substances
• Clothing with offensive and/or vulgar language and/or designs
• Clothing which calls attention to the body, including bike pants, spandex, unitard knit tights, body suits, sheer clothing or skin tight clothing
• Hats, caps, hoods, and sunglasses worn in the building
• Clothing with intentional cuts, slashes, fraying, or holes
• Short shorts, running shorts, or miniskirts (as a rule of measurement, shorts hem should reach the finger tips when arms are held loosely at the side)
• Crop tops showing midriffs
• Tube or tank tops or halters
• Coats worn in the building during instructional time
• Dangling jewelry, particularly earrings
• Flip-flops or any shoe not conducive to recess or PE activities
Absolutely nothing will be allowed at school that is intended, recognized, or acknowledged by the Metro Gang Task Force, to signify affiliation with, participation in, or approval of a gang.
