In preparation for our new building construction, Emerson will be moving to another location TBA and have classes there this coming Fall. We will be back in our normal building by the Fall of 2018. It will be an amazing building for our students.
EMERSON TO BE THE FIRST PUBLIC MONTESSORI SCHOOL IN OKLAHOMA
Beginning in the Fall of 2018, we will begin our transition toward being a full Montessori school. Our first teachers to train will be our PreK, K and 1st grade, which will be in one combined group. The following year, the next grouping will train. For more information, here is a suggested website: http://amshq.org/Montessori-Education/Introduction-to-Montessori There are over 500 public Montessori schools in the US.

VOLUNTEER, JUMP IN AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
When you volunteer at the school and at school events, you are making a huge difference in your child's education. The students see the example that you are showing and you are benefiting the school community. We need reading and math buddies and volunteers who can help in the office and classrooms. You must fill out a volunteer form from the office to get started.
We have lots of clubs after school to engage your child. Monday—Minecraft, Ceramics, First T. Tuesday—Bike Club, Coding Club. Wednesday— Music Club, Botball Robotics Club. Thursday—Nutcracker Rehearsal, Spanish Club, New Hope. Friday - Nutcracker Rehearsal and Girl Scouts is 1st Tuesday Every Month.

WHAT TECHNOLOGY ARE THE STUDENTS USING IN THE CLASSROOM?
Thanks to the Bond Issue, your child will either be using an Ipad or a Chromebook - sometimes both! Our desktop computers are on Windows 7 and our teachers use Smartboards and Smart Tables, Promethean Boards and Promethean Tables. Our building also has two computer labs. We are a Wireless facility, so feel free to come up to the building and use our wireless and our computers parents!
