Happy Friday!

I wanted to take a minute to express my gratitude as I have much to be thankful for during this Thanksgiving season!  I am so grateful for the warm welcome I have received this year from you and your children.  Emerson already feels like home because of the wonderful community we have.  As I visit the classrooms every day I am so proud of the hard work of all the teachers and the students as they show the world they have that fire!  The students at Emerson make me smile every day with their kind words, smiling faces and great thinking!  Thank you for sharing your children with us every day, they are a joy!


The students are working hard as we are off to a great start in the second trimester!  Ms. Kawa and the Girls on the Run Club along with their special guest runners did an awesome job at their 5K on Wednesday afternoon.  It was so fun to see the pride on the student’s faces when they accomplished their goal! We also met with our Future Focused Learning Buddies this week and learned about contemplation and mindfulness.  The students discuss what it means to be aware and thoughtful of their actions throughout the day! We are looking forward to see you next week at Parent Teacher Conferences!



-First Trimester SPRs come home today!

-There is still school for the students on Monday, there will be no school Tuesday through Friday next week! Enjoy the extra family time!

-Conference hours are: Monday 11/20 from 4:30pm-8:00pm and Tuesday 11/21 from 10:00am-6:00pm

-Monday, November 20 is Crazy Hair Day!

-The window for the 5 Essentials Survey opening has been delayed, we will let you know when it will be opening!


I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
