Emerson Coin Drive

One of the key themes in our literacy curriculum, as well as our social/emotional curriculum is: Empathy.

With that has come questions and conversations from the students around the current crisis in Ukraine. After brainstorming how we can help, students decided to raise money through a school-wide coin drive to support displaced children. This was initiated by them, and we couldn’t be prouder of their empathy for humanity. This drive will start Monday, March 14 and continue for 3 weeks. Please consider digging up spare change to add to our cause.

Thank you!

4th grade classes: Ms. Visala and Mrs. Logan

We are excited to kick off our Central Emerson Tiger Fun Run on April 15. Our goal is to raise $1,000 or more for Staff Dinners, Student Activities, Field Trips, Educational Assemblies, and more and to strengthen our school community.

Our school has always relied on fundraising to provide exceptional opportunities to enhance student learning. And this year, we have more needs than we’ve ever had before, which means we need your support more than ever.

We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at mybooster.com. Sharing IS supporting!

Just as we worked to safely begin school this year, we are also safely hosting this essential fundraiser based on our school’s current guidelines. We’ll send more details, as we get closer to our kick off.

Key dates to remember:

  • April 15 - Fundraiser Kick Off
  • April 25 & 26 Event Days
