Principal's Corner

Dear Emerson Family,

By the time you read this letter, our students would have celebrated Hispanic Heritage, been on a few field trips, participated in Anti-Violence/Anti-Bullying week, and participated in our spooky Halloween parade.  Kudos to all of our dedicated staff, students, and parents for making those events possible!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you parents and stakeholders for making our school fundraiser an overwhelming success! Needless to say, your efforts are greatly appreciated.  Information about future fundraisers will be coming from your child’s teacher, the PTO and the Emerson Theater Group.

Important upcoming dates to remember are:

  • November 5th, 7th and 8th: School will be CLOSED due to Election Day and the  NJEA Teacher’s Convention.
  • November 18th: Fundraiser items delivered/ Parent pickup.
  • November 19th-21th will be Half-Day (12:10pm) dismissals for Parent/Teacher Conferences.
  • November 27th-29th: School will be CLOSED for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Don’t forget to check your calendars for other exciting events taking place during the month of November.  As we end this month with the start of the holiday season, I think it is best to remember all of the things that we have to be thankful for.  Look out for upcoming information coming from the PTO, on how you can help those families that might be in need at this time of year.

Until next time,

Dr. Asante
