Principal’s Message

Dear Emerson Families,

Here we are at the end of another amazing year at Emerson Elementary! As we head off for our summer adventures, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the many ways you have all supported Emerson. Our breakfast that recognized the many volunteers in our building was amazing. From our PTA, community council, ELP steering committee, cafeteria and classroom volunteers, it is all of you that make a positive difference at Emerson.

Next fall, we will be welcoming some new members to the Emerson community. As you know, Emerson was selected to be one of three mild/moderate special education hub schools in the district. We will be welcoming Ms. Eggleston, Mrs. Brockmeyer, Ms. Simons, Ms. Jones, and Ms. Berry to the Emerson faculty. In addition, several students and their families will be joining us. We are excited for this new adventure as it can only benefit all of us at Emerson.

I would like to give a shout out to Mr. Craner who was selected as the recipient of the Kiwanis Andrew Wood Cooley III Teacher of the Year Award for 2018-2019. Mr. Craner is one of the many awesome teachers at Emerson. Way to go Mr. Craner!

Students, now for your homework. While you are enjoying your summer break, keep practicing what you have learned this year. First of all, read, read, and keep reading! This is the best thing you can do to keep your reading skills strong over the summer. Find fun ways to include math calculation and problem solving in your daily activities. We are literally surrounded by the world of science every day. Make observations and draw conclusions about things in nature. Think and experience the world like a scientist! Finally, write about your summer experiences. Keep a journal or write a letter to a loved one. Be creative and have fun with it.

Enjoy your summer break with the people you love doing the things you love to do. Now, everyone get out there and share your awesomeness!

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.
Salt Lake City School District



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.
