    Dear Parents, Family Members, and Community Members,

    Welcome to a great school year at Emerson!  The students, staff and parents of Emerson are amazing, and our school year has gotten off to a terrific start.  The culture of Emerson is to work hard and to persevere through challenging tasks, and rigorous curriculum, which has made positive growth in our academic achievement.  Emerson Elementary staff also focuses on the well-being of each and every student.  Emerson has a school wide kindness initiative that is apparent to everyone that visits our school.  There are so many great things happening at Emerson this year, including our new Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) system that we have implemented.  Ask your Emerson student about our S.O.A.R. tickets and what they mean and how they can get them. 

    We want to welcome each of you to Emerson and invite you to come visit and volunteer at our wonderful elementary school.  We have many volunteer opportunities including Watch D.O.G.S., classroom helpers, supervision volunteers at lunch or recess, office help greeting visitors, and many other ways that you may help our students and school.  We also invite families and community members to frequent family events in the evening.  It is important for our school and families to work together to provide the best education and experiences for our students.

    If you have any questions, concerns, and/or ideas, please do not hesitate to call us.  We, along with the entire Emerson staff, strive to make school the best part of our students’ day!

    At Emerson, we do what’s best for our kids!

    Dawn Weddle and Aleta Smoot
