Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year

Posted by Julia Kanouse on Aug 16, 2016

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.  For those who are new to our school community, we are thrilled to have you!

We encourage you to be part of your child’s school experience through a variety of programs and events offered by the PTA.  With your support, we can continue to make Emerson academically challenging, fun, and nurturing for our children. Your contribution, whether it is your time, knowledge, or resources, makes a difference. 

During our Opening Day Coffees on August 18 (8:30-10:00 am and 12:05-2:00 pm) in the library, and again at Curriculum Night on August 24 (6:30-8:00 pm), you will have an opportunity to sign up to help with the many different programs and events that benefit our students and school. 

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 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, Rec Nights and so many more. 

We also encourage all parents to become a member of the Emerson PTA.  Dues are $10 per person and 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 and school.  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 20 and I’d love to see you there!

We are looking forward to another amazing year and hope to get even more of you involved with the PTA and assisting with our mission to enrich and enhance the social and educational opportunities for the children of Emerson School.  If you have any questions or would like to share some of your ideas and thoughts, please feel free to contact one of our PTA board members or me. 

Best wishes for a great school year!

Heidi Maier
