Principal's Message

Dear Emerson Families,

The Emerson teachers would like to give a huge thank you to our PTA, classified staff, and community for all the wonderful treats and goodies received throughout Teacher Appreciation Week! We felt very loved and are thankful to be able to work with our amazing Emerson students each day!

It is National Nurse Appreciation Week. We are blessed to have Nurse Marcia and Mrs. Andrews as our health professionals. We are so thankful for their kindness, support and compassion.

We are looking forward to our 3rd and 4th grade concerts next week on May 17. Mr. Beal and the third and fourth grade classes have been working hard to put on a great show. The concerts will take place in the Emerson gym.

Smarter Balanced testing will continue next week in English language arts. Our scheduled assessments are attached below and we appreciate all that you do to help your child come rested and ready to do their personal best and show all they know.

Go Tigers!

Once Upon A Mattress - Snohomish High School

Snohomish High School student theatre presents Once Upon A Mattress. The kingdom is under a curse! Queen Aggravain has decreed that no one shall be able to wed until her sweet, beautiful, special boy, Prince Dauntless, gets married. The problem is, no potential princess can pass the queen’s eligibility test. But maybe the unconventional Princess Winnifred can beat the test and undo the curse. Based loosely on the fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea,” this family-friendly musical has been delighting audiences for over 60 years!

Performances will be held May 6, May 7, May 13, May 14, May 20, and May 21 at Snohomish High School (1316 Fifth Street in Snohomish). Evening performances each day at 7 p.m., Saturday matinees at 1 p.m. Tickets are $15/adults and $10 student/senior citizens (over 65)/military. Tickets are available for purchase at showtix4u.com/events/shstheatre or at the door with cash only.
