Emerson students received a concert and motivational words from harmonica player Tim Gonzalez.
As Emerson neared the end of its first year as a public Montessori school, they opened their doors for families to explore what it has to offer students. At the open house, teachers shared with prospective parents what makes the program unique, while students worked contentedly to demonstrate Montessori materials.
Superintendent Gist shared the following letter with parents and families:
This morning, the Oklahoma State Board of Education voted to approve State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister’s recommendation to implement a continuous learning plan without reopening school buildings. This means that while instruction of students will resume remotely on April 6, our school buildings will NOT reopen this year.
