NEW SCHOOL YEAR, NEW TIMES!
The faculty and staff at Emerson are eager to meet you and your children. Every morning, our gym opens at 7:15 am. The tardy bell rings at 7:30 am. Students should always go to the gym to start the day. Teachers then take them to the classroom for breakfast. (Prek and Kindergarten go to the cafeteria.) If you are dropping your child off after 7:30 am, you must bring them into the office to check them in for success.
Did Your Child Participate in the Tulsa Library Summer Reading Program?
Have them bring in their medal and they will be honored with a Pizza and Wings Party in our library in September. Be sure that they come to Mrs. Foust so she can write their name down.
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT - NEW DATE!
This is an Emerson tradition. At 5:30 pm on SEPTEMBER 20th we will begin with a free chicken and potato dinner with a very short PTA Meeting. Then, in our Media Center, there will be lots of chances to sign up for clubs, buy T-shirts, and find out about opportunities and events coming up. We will have tables about various community services too. Next, it is time to go to your child's classroom and meet the teacher. Come and find out what their day will be like and what is planned.
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.
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 Promethian 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!
