What the PTA funds
The Emerson PTA Budget supports over $150,000 of vital programs and activities at the school. The PTA will spend $470 per student during the 2017-18 school year. Every dollar counts, and every family who participates strengthens our school community by helping provide:
- Physical education and art classes for every student at Emerson
- Community-building events, including the Welcome Back BBQ, Family Art Night, the Pancake Breakfast and the End-of-Year Party
- Gardening classes, field trips, programs to help reduce the achievement gap, teacher mini-grants, bilingual office support, cultural performances, library and classroom supplies and much more!
