Principal's Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!! I hope your summer months were filled with relaxation and regenerated your energy for tasks that we have to accomplish in the school year ahead. As our children walk through the doors for the first time on Thursday, September 6th, I am excited about our opportunity to work collaboratively to provide the best educational experiences for them.

This school year brings a few changes. We are happy to add some key additions to our staff who prove eager to continue our quest for excellence They bring a delightful mix of district experience and brand new energy and enthusiasm to Emerson School. They are: Ms. Casey Kurfehs/Music, Ms. Tenisha Fort/RTI, Mrs. Jackson/RTI, Mrs. Beverly Mack/RTI, Ms. Niketa Dupiche/PSD and Ms. Liana Pariag/PSD. Collectively they bring years of expertise to the Emerson family and are a welcome addition!

For the parents of our newest students, our Kindergarteners, we will have a short Kindergarten Orientation on Thursday, September 6th, at 8:30 AM in our cafetorium. All Kindergarten parents are encouraged to attend to hear information that is vital to the well-being of their children.

I look forward to seeing you all at our Back-to-School Night that will take place on Tuesday, September 25th at 6:00 pm. Please mark your calendars! As a reminder, student uniforms are mandatory. Students are to be in uniform everyday unless otherwise noted. This expectation will be reinforced this year!

Remember, all visitors must report to the main office to sign in upon arrival at the school. All students are expected to arrive on time: 8:00AM and remain in school until dismissal at 2:35 PM.

Lastly, in 2018-2019, we intend to make great strides in improving the quality of education and providing the best possible learning environment for all of our students. Together we will make this happen.
