Bike Club was introduced at Emerson Elementary in the 2014-15 school year. Bike Club immediately became a part of Emerson's culture. The program serves multiple roles for participating children. The volunteers encourage engagement, leadership, good citizenship and participate as mentors to many of the children as well. In fact, several children who have gone on to middle school have come back to Emerson to see "Mr. Mike."
Global Garden empowers students and families through inquiry-based learning that takes place in the garden. Our holistic model teaches students about science, peace, health, and the environment, while challenging them to become caring, engaged community members. As our students plan and cultivate their gardens, they grow the confidence and skills to create positive changes in their lives and the world around them.
