The Read-a-Thon officially begins on Friday, April 20th. For the next 10 days (through Sunday, the 29th), please encourage your students to read, read, read! Use the reading log that was sent home with your student to track the number of minutes your student spends reading outside of school. Teachers will use a classroom log to track in-class minutes. Need an extra pledge form or an extra reading log? See Ms. Jeannie!
Please take a moment to let Ms. Hodge know how much you value her leadership and dedication, and to let Ms. Sonia, and Ms. Sandra know how much you appreciate their hard work. The PTA gives all three of them a gift. A card, flowers, or just a kind word from you would be much appreciated, as well!
All Emerson families are invited to join us Friday, May 4th, 2018 during Morning Coffee on the yard for the last PTA Association Meeting of the year. During the meeting we will vote on the board for next year, approve the budget for 2018-2019 and discuss exciting volunteer opportunities.
