Thank you Central-Emerson Community
Greetings Central Primary and Emerson Families,
Tiger parents and students, we cannot thank you enough for making the best out of the 2020-2021 school year. In spite of many challenges, we worked together to create meaningful learning opportunities through remote learning, hybrid learning, and in-person learning. Our teachers and staff had to restructure all aspects of the way we operated schools to keep everyone safe and healthy. We want to send a special shout out to our custodial staffs, their jobs became even more important and complex this year. The resilience and perseverance of our students, community and staff made us so proud as school leaders.
This upcoming year, we will pick up exactly where kids are, we will assess their current levels and facilitate learning and work with families. Our goals will be to foster relationships, identify students social emotional and academic needs, create opportunities for additional learning, and create positive school experiences for students. We love our students and Central and Emerson are committed to working together to help each one become the best they can be.
We appreciate our students, parents, teachers, staff and Central/Emerson PTA! It really is true, it does take a village and we are so incredibly proud and appreciative of our CE-EM village. Have a great, relaxing and adventure filled summer break. We are excited to rebuild our school community, bring back our traditions, and welcome everyone safely back into our buildings in the fall.
