NUTCRACKER TO BE HELD AT EMERSON ON DECEMBER 16
We will have two performances at the school on Friday, December 16th. One performance will be at 1pm for the students and the other at 6pm for families. The students have been working for months on this. What a wonderful, free evening your group will have! Make it a tradition.
EMERSON GIVING TREE
Every year, Emerson helps some families with Christmas gifts. Our classrooms are challenging each other to see who can bring the most cash and change for their Giving Tree Jar. As contributions build, the Giving Tree in the Library will get prettier and brighter. THe deadline for giving is the 16th, so that we can shop that weekend for the families.
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. Contact Susan Foust for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
NEWS FOR EMERSON NEXT YEAR:
In preparation for our new building construction, Emerson will be moving to the Old Sequoyah School building near Harvard and Admiral 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.
