After drop-off the first day of school, all new and returning families are invited to come on up to the Emerson library (go up the stairs on the yard then turn right) for free coffee and pastries! Ms. Hodge, the principal, and the PTA will speak briefly to kick off the new school year.
Come drink some coffee, grab something to eat, and hang out with other Emerson families after drop-off!
All Emerson families are welcome to join the Emerson students and teachers at the monthly All-School Meetings in the cafetorium. Topics vary, but always include announcements by teachers, staff, and the PTA, and often include student performances and shout-outs, and sometimes special guests! Come see what's going on at school!
Parents & guardians are strongly encouraged to come to back to school night. Meet first in the cafetorium to hear from Ms. Hodge and the Emerson staff, then go to your children's classrooms to meet their teachers and hear what to expect for the year. Limited free childcare available.
Free childcare & dinner provided!

From Ms. Hodge: Thursday, May 17th is Open House. This is a great opportunity to visit the school to see the culmination of your child's activities for the school year and to visit other classrooms as well. Of course, there will be baby chicks to visit in Kindergarten and don't miss art portfolios and science displays upstairs.
