I hope you all enjoyed our spring recess. All of us benefit from time away to rejuvenate and spend time with family and friends. The weather was amazing!
We are entering the end-of-level testing window. This is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their learning. Although this year has been unusual, end-of-level testing is required by the district and state and the data is important to Emerson for instructional planning purposes. It gives us information regarding grade level and individual student academic needs so that planning can take place for next year. This information helps us better serve our students. The testing window runs through May 27th. If you plan to have your student out of school during the testing window, please let your child’s teacher know. We will plan around their time away from school and arrange for him/her to complete their assessments. If you have remote learners, it is so important that you get your child to Emerson for their scheduled testing times. We are operating under a tight schedule this year. Thanks for your support.
The last day of school will be on Monday, June 7th. This is a district emergency make-up day. This will be half day with student dismissal at 12:30.
Thank you to our PTA for sponsoring out annual Emerson STEM Night and egg drop. The egg drop event took place on a rainy Saturday. We moved the event into the gymnasium and Emerson engineers (students) came in the building to test their creations. It was so fun to have families back in the building and see the innovative designs our students created. The virtual STEM night was a huge success as well. This event is another example of shifting gears and doing things in an innovative way. Thanks for your support and participation.
