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.

Lunch Information

Students and teachers have lunch between 11:05-12:05 daily.  Grades 1, 2 and 3 will have lunch first- from 11:05-11:35. Grades 4 & 5 will be outside for recess. All students in the lunchroom who are finished eating can join the recess beginning at 11:30. Students who are still eating should remain in the lunchroom until they have completed their lunch. We transition the lunchroom during this time to get it ready for the next group to eat. At 11:35 grades 4, 5 line up to enter the lunch lines.

Any student who goes home for lunch, will tell their teacher during attendance. Students will be excused to the office when the bell rings at 11:05. Parents, please park at MQH and meet your children by the main office door. Students who go home for lunch are return to the office area no earlier that 12:00 noon. The bell rings at 12:05 to return to class. They may not join recess when they return.

Students can bring their own lunches from home. We encourage students to eat waste free by using reusable containers when they bring their lunch.  Hot lunches will be served on reusable plastic trays. Please read the monthly menus with your children to make sure that they like the hot lunch served that day. Students may purchase milk and/or a hot lunch using their own lunch cards with picture and name identification. Please read for more information  about setting up a lunch account or adding money to your child's account on the district website. You can also find dietary information and ingredients for the lunches.
