Author Candace Fleming Visits Emerson! 

Emerson Elementary is delighted to welcome award-winning author Candace Fleming (https://www.candacefleming.com/) on Thursday, December 20th. Ms. Fleming will talk with students about her career as an author and discuss her books. All students will have the opportunity to attend Ms. Fleming's presentation that morning. 

Several of her books are available for purchase. Two-sided forms are going home with students on Monday, December 3 (or can be printed using this link). If you are interested in ordering a book for your students, please return the form and payment by Monday, December 17.

The books will be signed and delivered to classrooms for students to bring home the day of Ms. Fleming's visit. Afternoon kindergarten students are invited to attend the 9:00 a.m. assembly with an accompanying adult. Please arrive at 8:50 a.m. and find a seat together in the gym. Thank you to the PTA for making this author visit possible! 

Welcome Back Emerson Students and Families!

We are so excited to be back! It is going to be a great year in the Emerson Library. We will be reading lots of wonderful books, delivering engaging lessons and launching a new MakerSpace. We can't wait to see all the wonderful things that students create.
