What we Learned this Year VIDEO Starring Emerson Students
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/
EMERSON IS AN ACCELERATED READER SCHOOL
We motivate and promote successful reading. Grades 2 through 6 have a goal every 9 weeks in their reading classes. The student's goal is based on their age and reading level and the results that are obtained when they take a STAR Diagnostic test. Then, when they read any book, they take an Accelerated Reader quiz at https://hosted213.renlearn.com/219798 , 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.
New After School Programs
We have Tulsa Girl's Art School, Bike Club, Botball Robotics, Coding, STEM Club, Ceramics Workshop and beginning in January, we will have Junior LEGO, Choir, Jazz Combo and Drumming Clubs. THERE IS AN ACTIVITIES BUS THAT WILL BRING YOUR CHILD HOME MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY. IT LEAVES HERE AT 4:40 PM.
