We want all parents at Emerson to feel they have a voice in their child’s school experience. Our goal is to keep parents and guardians informed on issues and programs concerning the education, health, and welfare of children and families.
- Membership. We are a membership organization promoting the welfare of all children, including yours. Dues are just $5 a year, and membership is open to any parent, grandparent, guardian, teacher, or community supporter. No one is denied membership for lack of funds.
- Meetings. Our meetings are community events held the first Wednesday of the month. Meetings may include presentations on parenting or schoolwork, discussions of issues at Emerson, or just friendly social gatherings. There’s always dinner and childcare. You do NOT need to be a member to attend the monthly meetings or ANY of our other events.
- The Emerson Fund. Our fundraising arm, the Emerson Fund, helps cushion the school against state budget shortfalls, so it can maintain its diverse programs and academic excellence.
- Community Events. Emerson PTA organizes meetings, field trips, special assemblies, enrichment activities for kids and parents, and social and cultural events to allow our families to spend time together and enjoy our strong community.
