Principal's Message

Dear Emerson Families,

We are off to an awesome start of the school year at Emerson.  Things are looking good!  We are using Playworks structures at recess to create inclusive, safe, and positive play.  Our community garden is looking amazing thanks to Melissa and all of our volunteers.  We are excited about our new teachers and students that have joined the Emerson community.  Our teachers, staff, and students have jumped right in and there are so many positive things happening in classrooms.  Thank you to everyone’s work in getting Emerson off to a great start.

Here is a reminder about student drop off in the morning.  The only door that is open before 7:55 is the cafeteria door on the west side of the building.  You may drop off your student on 1000 east and students may come inside to enjoy breakfast or hang out and visit with friends.  Supervision is provided beginning at 7:30 a.m.  Using this drop-off area will also help with the morning traffic congestion on Harrison Avenue. 

Please support the annual Emerson Move & Groove fundraising event taking place on September, 20th.  This event, previously known as the Emerson Walk-a-Thon, is sponsored by our PTA.  Money raised through this yearly event goes directly to supporting students.  Donations pay for the carnival, yearbooks, teacher supplies, buses and entry fees to field trips.  Every donation is appreciated.  Thank you for supporting Emerson!
