Congratulations Theims Foundation Grant Recipients

Congratulations Mrs. Dvorak, Mrs. Fritz, Mrs. Guziewski, Mrs. Kissel and Dr. Lessard for being awarded the following grants to benefit Emerson students!

IXL 4 All      $550                                                                                        

Christine Dvorak, Jennice  Fritz, Kelly Guziewski ,Christine Kissel

This grant provides access to the computer based IXL program in Language Arts for each fourth grade student to use at home and at school.  IXL is a highly motivating individualized program that provides instant feedback to students, parents, and teachers.  District students use IXL for math, and piloting the language arts version will allow staff and students to work with the software and evaluate it as a potential resource for extended use. 

Keeping the Spark Glowing: BrainPop 4  (partial) $6,665                   


Karla Talbot and K-8 Librarians

BrainPOP is an online multi-media subscription database that features hundreds of animated movies with formative assessments and curriculum extensions for younger students. Funded for all elementary schools by the Foundation since 2010, this popular resource is used by classroom and resource teachers, media specialists and students with over 9,500 unique visits logged between May and December 2013. This grant extends the 24/7 including home use subscription for an additional year at the elementary level.


STEM Injection for Elementary Libraries: It Won’t Hurt, Just a Little Pressure. 


Mary Greska,  Donna Dewar, Vicky Lessard, Margaret Lewis, Nicolette Vaillancourt, Emily Walton, Caroline Weaver

The proceeds from this grant will be used to inject new and engaging non-fiction titles geared for third through fifth grade students. Seven libraries will receive thirty to forty- five new books intended to provoke student curiosity and interest in STEM related topics. (Field Elementary opted out due to previously earmarked funds for this purpose).

Earth Ambassadors Visit Elmhurst Village Council

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.
