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
