Emerson Elementary Communication - June 10, 2021

Principal's Message

Greetings Emerson Families,

This coming week is the final week of the 2020-2021 school year. This pandemic has challenged us, surprised us and forced us to adapt and change. Our Emerson Tigers’ resilience and efforts have made our staff extremely proud. We recognize that this wasn’t easy or what any of us wanted, but the 2021-2022 school year brings a lot of hope and optimism that we get back to serving students in-person five days a week.

Tomorrow we celebrate our 6th grade remote students and this next Wednesday and Thursday we celebrate our in-person 6th grade students. Our 6th grade class is filled with positive, helpful and amazing students who leave a great legacy and memories that will be cherished.

Please continue to look for materials, devices, charging cords, textbooks, teacher materials and anything else that must be returned. In this newsletter we have listed times and dates of our collection and if those times don’t work for your family, please contact the office.

We are also excited to make connections with our 2nd grade students and their families. This next Monday our 3rd grade teachers will be Zooming with our colleagues at Central Primary answering student questions and talking about 3rd grade. Monday, June 14th we are inviting 2nd grade students and their families for otter pops and open play time from 4:30 to 5:30. We will have a few of our third grade teachers and staff there to say hello and answer any questions you might have. Our goal with this invitation is just to start to get to know each other better and have some fun.

Go Tigers!

Mr. Hanson

Principal, Emerson Elementary School

Thanks again to Central Emerson PTA for the purchase of these books for the entire student body.

Congratulations 6th Grade Class

The 6th grade class of 2021 has had quite a memorable and challenging year! Although this year's recognition will look different, we enter this milestone with honor and tradition. We're so proud of them as they move on to middle school. Sadly, guests will not be allowed at 6th grade recognition because of the ongoing Covid regulations, but we plan to record the in-person ceremonies for families.

Recognition dates and times:

  • Remote 6th grade students on June 11 @11:00 via Zoom
  • In-Person M/W Cohort Students on June 16 @ 10:00 a.m. - recognition ceremony will be recorded for families to watch later
