Let Your Learning Glow ~ Wednesday, August 10, 2022

Emmott Vision: The Emmott community commits to developing successful, life-long learners in a safe and supportive environment.

Welcome Back Emmott Community!!

We are excited to get started with our school year and welcome our Eagles back to school for 2022-2023!

We continue our theme this year, LET YOUR LEARNING GLOW, and I can tell you that our staff has already started setting the tone for GLOWing this year with some pretty amazing things here at Emmott.

This week the Emmott Staff has been participating in professional learning opportunities across the district with colleagues preparing and planning for classroom instruction. The Eagles have also been decorating their classrooms in preparation for Meet the Teacher, August 20. We share in the excitement to get this year kicked off for our Emmott Eagles.

As we make final preparations for back to school, you will find important information inside this newsletter that will help prepare you and your family for 1st day logistics and beyond.

During the week of August 15-19, your child's homeroom teacher will reach out to you and share information for first week of school planning. We look forward to seeing all of you at our Meet the Teacher event!

Let's get ready to GLOW Eagles...it is going to be a GREAT year!





Emmott Meet The Teacher

Meet the Teacher and Eagle Express is scheduled for Saturday, August 20th from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. During this time, parents and students will be able to meet their teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. Parents will also update student information; complete transportation information; drop off school supplies; deliver medicine to the nurse's office and meet members of our fabulous PTO. Because we will not have first day of school visitors on Monday, August 22, our Meet the Teacher event will allow for some photo opportunities with your child's homeroom teacher.

Reminder this a Come & Go event.

Back To School Information

As we prepare to open our doors to all of our Emmott Eagles this year, there will be some important first day logistics for parents to be aware of to start the 2022-2023 school year.

  • We have new school hours this year 8:15 a.m. - 3:40 p.m.. Our doors will open at 7:55 a.m. for students and the instructional day will begin promptly at 8:15 a.m..

  • All students will enter the campus by themselves and be greeted by staff members present at morning duty assignments. Staff members will be stationed all throughout our campus arrival areas, hallways, and classrooms to support incoming students as they locate teacher and grade levels. For the safety and security of all students and staff, parents will not be allowed to walk in with their child(ren). Emmott will also have PTO volunteers supporting our first day arrival procedures to ensure our students arrive to class successfully.

  • In order to help support our students on their first day, we ask parents to label backpacks, lunch kits, and school materials with student name, teacher, and/or grade level. This labeling will help staff to assist students in directing them if needed.

  • Students may bring a closed cap water bottle and have opportunities to refill at our water bottle fill stations on campus. Please do not send in glass water bottles, open lid Yeti or RTIC style mugs.

  • We will have more news for procedures focused on Car Riders, Walkers, Bikers, and Bus Riders next week to share with our Eagles. Please remember as we work through all logistics for arrival/departure procedures that our first few days may be delayed as routines are established. More information will be shared at Meet the Teacher.

Thank you for your support!

Meal Cost at Emmott Elementary

We are excited to continue our participation in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). The CEP is a federally funded option that allows all students to eat breakfast and lunch during the school day for free. This is excitement for our campus because there will be no cost for breakfast and lunch for all students at Emmott Elementary.

Parent Lunches

This year Emmott will be focusing on establishing our cafeteria procedures and building our culture of EAGLE PRIDE during grade level lunches. As part of our mission to establish effective routines during lunch and build campus community within the first nine weeks, our parent lunches will BEGIN on Tuesday, Sept. 27th. We will have two days available for lunch visitors, Tuesdays and Thursdays. This year we will be encouraging our parent/student lunch tables to serve as a PHONE FREE ZONE. We ask that if you choose to have lunch with your child during their lunch period, that our EAGLE PRIDE continues and you allow your child to teach you our EMMOTT ways and share the great things happening in their classrooms, through positive conversations!

Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding as we establish procedures and expectations for our students during these first few weeks of school.

School Supplies

School supplies can be brought to school the day of "Meet the Teacher" or on the first day of school.

We will have school supplies for sale on the morning of "Meet the Teacher", however, please note that there is a very limited amount available and will be sold on a first come first served basis.
