Construction parking

Please give yourself time if looking for a parking spot when visiting Emerson. Because of construction, we've had a few changes which impact parking. Until construction is over, busses will be using:

1. The spots on Woodlawn north of Eagles Nest parking lot until the stop sign.

2. The east side of Woodlawn from Liberty to the first driveway on Woodlawn.

Lion Club

Each year, the Wheaton Lions host a food drive that supports the People's Resource Center. Our school will once again serve as a collection site. Our collection box is located in the office. Last year, our District 200 schools collected more than 1,000 pounds of food and we are hoping to beat that record this year! Thank you in advance for your support.

Breakfast Builds Brains

Did you eat breakfast this morning? Do you know that regular breakfast eaters are more alert, physically active and creative? Sounds good, right? When you eat breakfast you also tend to be healthier. You’re a better problem solver and have better eye-hand coordination. It seems silly to skip breakfast, right?

Here are some tips to a healthy breakfast and a great start to your day!

--Healthy breakfasts include 2-3 different food groups.

--Choose whole grains foods like dry cereal, trail mix, toast or an English muffin (you could even put some peanut butter on it). The whole grain helps your energy level last longer and feel full.

--Pair the whole grain food with a protein like a cheese stick, yogurt, eggs or milk.

--Add fruit to your cereal, pancakes or drink a glass of juice.

--Decide what you want for breakfast the night before & get it ready to go. BUT if you do run short on time, grab a piece of fruit or raw veggies to munch on your way to school.
