Happy 2022!! I hope your family had a restful and relaxing holiday break. Last week was a great week. We were excited to welcome all our Emery Eagles back to campus. It was so nice walking through the hallways and classrooms to see everyone learning and engaged in the lessons.


As we enter 2022, here are some reminders and upcoming events for January. First, the district has updated the Lead Safely protocols so please review them in the Nurse Section or the CFISD website. If you have any questions please feel free to call us. We are still practicing our health and safety protocols each and every day. Thank you for making sure your children are feeling well and monitoring them for symptoms daily. We want to keep every Emery Eagle safe and healthy.


As a reminder, our school start time is 8:40am Students should be in there classrooms when the bell rings. Please make sure your children arrive before 8:40am so they have time to get their breakfast and make it to their classroom before the bell rings. Each and every second counts toward academic success.


Report Cards will be posted on your Home Access Center on January 24th so be sure to look for them. Then our next Virtual Family Library Night is January 25th at 5:30pm. Ms. McGinness will send out the link so you can join us. Please remember to put Jan. 25th on your calendar so you can join us for a fun evening. Also, please look for a fun event coming up on 2/2/22. The students will enjoy that day.


Two upcoming students holidays will be Friday, January 14th and January 17th in honor of the Dr. Martin Luther King Holiday. Please stay warm and safe. We are looking forward to a wonderful Spring semester.


Warmly,

Dr. Michelle Merricks




Feliz 2022!! Espero que su familia haya tenido unas vacaciones tranquilas y relajantes. La semana pasada fue una gran semana. Estábamos emocionados de dar la bienvenida a todas nuestras Águilas de Emery. Fue muy agradable caminar por los pasillos y las aulas para ver a todos aprendiendo y participando en las lecciones.

A medida que ingresamos al 2022, aquí hay algunos recordatorios y próximos eventos para enero. Primero, el distrito actualizo los protocolos de seguridad Lead Safely, así que revíselos en la sección de Enfermería o en el sitio web de CFISD. Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en llamarnos. Todavía estamos practicando nuestros protocolos de salud y seguridad todos los días. Gracias por asegurarse de que sus hijos se sientan bien y monitorearlos diariamente para detectar síntomas. Queremos mantener a cada Águila de Emery seguro y saludable.

Como recordatorio, nuestra hora de inicio de clases es a las 8:40am. Los estudiantes deben estar en sus salones de clase cuando suene la campana. Asegúrese de que sus hijos lleguen antes de las 8:40am para que tengan tiempo de desayunar y llegar a su salón de clase antes de que suene la campana. Cada Segundo cuenta para el éxito académico.

Las boletas de calificaciones se publicaran en su Home Access Center el 24 de enero, así que asegúrese de buscarlas. Luego, nuestra próxima Noche de Biblioteca Familiar Virtual es el 25 de enero a las 5:30pm. La Sra. Mcguiness enviara el enlace para que pueda unirse a nosotros. Recuerde poner el 25 de enero en su calendario para que puede unirse a nosotros en una noche divertida. Además, busque un evento divertido el 2/2/22. Los estudiantes disfrutaran ese dia.

Dos próximas vacaciones estudiantiles serán el Viernes 14 y 17 de enero en honor a la festividad del Doctor Martin Luther King. Por favor, mantente abrigado y seguro. Esperamos un maravilloso semestre de primavera.

Atentamente,

Dr. Michelle Merricks
