Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year!

Posted by Jana Krausfeldt on Aug 18, 2014

Dear Emerson Families,

Welcome to what promises to be another great school year!  I hope you had a wonderful summer break and are excited to be back at Emerson school!

Whether you are new to the Emerson community or one of our returning 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 on August 20, and again at Curriculum Night on August 28, 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, Assemblies, Running Club and so many more. 

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 16th.

NEW ONLINE PAYMENT OPTION:    Fair Share and PTA Dues can be paid online!  

Please go to The online payment box is in the right-hand column. When placing an order online **IN THE NOTES TO SELLER** box, please indicate Your Child's Name and Teacher in order for us to correctly account the Fair Share payment to your family.  There is a 3% convenience fee for this service which will show up as a tax/convenience fee on your online order.

If you would like to pay by check or cash, please download the Fair Share Dues Form and send it to school or bring it with you to the Opening Day Coffee.   Credit Card payments will also be accepted that morning.

To keep you informed, we constantly update the Emerson PTA website ( and also send out a weekly PTA email - EMERSON HAPPENINGS -  each Thursday.  They both offer important information about upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.

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

Best wishes for a great school year!
