October Mummy Madness

The focus of the October PBIS Celebration is Mummy Madness! We will be ‘mummified’! During the month of October students will take their tickets and ‘vote’ for which staff members will be mummified. Students in the winning bucket will have their names pulled to help mummify that person. Watch the video to see what we mean!

Earth Ambassadors Visit Elmhurst City Council With ReQUEST to Recycle

UPDATE: During an Elmhurst City Council meeting held in May, it was announced that six recycling containers will be placed in the downtown area next month. Because of the initiative of Emerson's Earth Ambassadors, the City has contacted them to be involved with the education of the public about recycling during the installation process.

Over the last two years, the Earth Ambassadors have quietly campaigned to bring recycling receptacles to sidewalks in Elmhurst business districts and public spaces. On March 17, Earth Ambassador student representatives brought their campaign to City Council and invite city leaders to view their video production, "ReQUEST to Recycle."  See pictures and read more.


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.

Learn more and find a key to the planet location.
