Welcome to the 2013-2014 School Year!

Posted by Jana Krausfeldt on Aug 15, 2013

Dear Emerson Families,

Welcome to the 2013-14 school year!  I hope you all had a relaxing and fun-filled summer break and are excited to be back at Emerson School. 

Whether you are new to the Emerson community, or one of our veteran families, we encourage you to be part of your child’s school experience through a variety of programs and events offered by the PTA.  During our Opening Day Coffee, and again at Curriculum Night, you will have an opportunity to sign up to help with the many different programs and events that benefit our students.

The Emerson PTA has elected to be a “Fair Share” school – which means we do not require product sales to raise money to support our student programs.  Instead, we ask each family to pay $25 for their first child, and then $20 for each additional child.  These funds make up a majority of our operating budget and support great programs like Science Olympiad, Chess Club, Jr. Great Books, Running Club and so many more.  Please download the Fair Share dues formand send it to school or bring it with you to the Opening Day Coffee.  And thank you for your support!

We also encourage all parents to become a member of the Emerson PTA.  Dues can be paid along with Fair Share.  Membership to the PTA ensures you have the ability to influence the many ways in which we support our students.  PTA meetings are generally held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7 PM in the Emerson library. Our first meeting of the year will be Tuesday, September 17th.

From time to time, we offer additional opportunities for our parents to financially support the needs of our school that the PTA budget does not cover.  This fall, we will be running a campaign to bring needed wireless technology to the entire school.  Watch for more information coming soon regarding the "Access Point Campaign".

Please be sure to frequently check the Emerson PTA website (Emersonpta.org) and to read the weekly PTA email that is sent out each Thursday.  They both offer important information about upcoming events.

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions on how we can serve your children better, please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime throughout the year.

Best wishes for a great year ahead!

Cassie Quick
