Emerson Community School - Principal's Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year!! I hope your summer months were filled with relaxation and regenerated your energy for tasks that we have to accomplish in the school year ahead. As our children walk through the doors for the first time on Tuesday, September 6th, I am excited about our opportunity to work collaboratively to provide the best educational experiences for them.

This school year brings a few changes that promise to enrich the lives of our students. Specifically, we welcome the addition of several new staff members, beginning with our new Vice-Principal, Mrs. Deitria Snead. Also new to the Emerson family are Mrs. Sarah Harris, Ms. Deborah Kuver, Mrs. Daniele Washington and Mrs. Alina Rubio. Collectively they all bring years of expertise to the Emerson family and are a welcome addition!

Another significant change has been the reassignment of teachers and/or room assignments for a few of our students due to a decreased enrollment. The change in teachers and/or room assignments only affect a small number of our students in grades 1,3, and 5. The changes will be implemented on the first day of school.

For the parents of our newest students, our Kindergarteners, we will have a short Kindergarten Orientation on Tuesday, September 6th, at 8:30 AM in our cafetorium. All Kindergarten parents are encouraged to attend to hear information that is vital to the well-being of their children. Parents will also get a chance to complete their lunch forms online at that time, as well.

I look forward to seeing you all at our Back-to-School Night that will take place on Wednesday, September 14th at 6:00 pm. Please mark your calendars!  As a reminder, student uniforms are mandatoryStudents are to be in uniform everyday unless otherwise noted.    Remember, all visitors must report to the main office to sign in upon arrival at the school.  All students are expected to arrive on time: 8:00AM and remain in school until dismissal at 2:35 PM. 

Lastly, in 2016-2017, we intend to make great strides in improving the quality of education and providing the best possible learning environment for all of our students. Together we will make this happen.
