WE ARE OVER HALF WAY TO OUR TULSA READING TREE GOAL OF 17,300 BOOKS!
Emerson parents! Keep reading with your children and keep filling out the leaves! Here is a great site to remind you about the Gathering Place Reading Tree Challenge: https://www.tulsareadingtree.org/resources/
WE ARE AN ACCELERATED READER SCHOOL
Grades 2 through 6 have a 9 week goal in their reading classes. The student's goal is based on their age and reading level. We get the reading level when they take a STAR Diagnostic test every 9 weeks.Then, when they take an Accelerated Reader quiz on a book, the points that they earn go toward money for the book fair. We are the only public school in Tulsa that uses book fair profits to pay back the students for their hard work. We have used Accelerated Reader for 18 years now. It has proved to be valuable in showing the students their progress. Ask your child if they know what their reading level is and what their goal was for this past nine weeks.
We have Tulsa Girl's Art School, Bike Club, Botball Robotics, Chess, Coding, STEM Club and Ceramics Workshop. THERE IS AN ACTIVITIES BUS THAT WILL BRING YOUR CHILD HOME. IT LEAVES HERE AT 4:45 PM.
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. The first teachers to train will be our PreK, K and 1st grade, which will be in one combined group. Check out the TPS website about our transition: http://www.tulsaschools.org/6_Community/03_Montessori/INDEX.asp
In the following year, the next grouping be added. The district is making sure that there will be a whole new group of teachers and we will have a new principal, Diane Beckham email@example.com
