Explore the Universe - Begin with the Sun at Emerson
Stop by and explore the universe! The Emerson PTA is proud to announce that the solar system has come to Elmhurst. Using the Emerson Outdoor Classroom as a base, a scale model of the solar system has been created. The model includes all fourteen major solar system bodies including the five dwarf planets of Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake and Eris. In the model, the sun is located in the Emerson Outdoor Classroom and is 18 inches in diameter. Eris, the farthest planet, is located at Edison School. Each planet's location has a large sign that contains a picture of the planet, its actual comparative size (to scale), scientific facts, the origin of the planet’s name and a map showing where each planet is placed in Elmhurst. The planets are located at Emerson, Edison, Hawthorne and York schools, Berens and Plunkett Parks and Mary Queen of Heaven Catholic Church. Many thanks to District 205, the Elmhurst Park District and Mary Queen of Heaven for their support in making this endeavor possible.
Emerson in the Top 1% in the Nation for Jump Rope for Heart Donations!
Emerson School, I am so incredibly proud of your efforts this year through Jump Rope for Heart. You showed what a huge heart you have for helping others! I wanted to share with you where you stand among the other 30,000 schools that participate in this event.
Your incredible hard work and passion raised $18,557.00 in lifesaving donations. We always look at the impact that can make by saying that every $50 can potentially save a life - the cost to train someone in CPR. Using that as a measurement your school saved 371 lives!
All I can say is Wow and thank you!
To give you an idea of just how amazing that is, your school ranked 108 out of the 30,000 participating schools - in the top 1% in the nation!
I am so proud if each and every one of you! Thank you for taking being lifesavers so seriously!
