Go-Green News!

  • National Cell Phone Recycling Week is this week. We are collecting old cell phones at the drop-off bins in the hall by the office.
  • On-going collection of batteries and ink cartridges (that fit in the palm our your hand) continues through the end of the school year. Cartridges generate a modest revenue for us. Keep them coming!
  • Up-coming collections: Worn out sneakers for “Nike Grind” will be collected in May; and used, unwanted crayons will be collected the last week of school.
  • Walk to School Fridays resumes this week. We encourage Emerson students to walk or ride bikes on Fridays (and/or EVERY day!) to start school with a clearer head and healthy extra exercise, while reducing the parking lot traffic jams and the amount of idling pollution (the worst) that is generated as a result. Talk about a WIN/WIN!


MARK YOUR CALENDAR! Thursday, April 22nd, is EARTH DAY! Many events will take place including a “Walking School Bus,” poster contest, waste-free lunch raffle, all-school raffle, and more.
