Emerson Elementary School


Friday Updates 2.2.18

Happy Friday!

It’s freezing outside but we are still heating it up at Emerson! This week the students in third through fifth grade were working hard to finish up their MAP tests. They really showed that fire as they took their time, carefully read all the answer choices, and worked out the problems. The results will be sent out to you from the district in a few weeks! As I visited classrooms this week, I saw students across many grade levels using the skills they are learning in reading and writing to conduct research, take notes, and write about topics they are interested in. It is awesome to see how excited the students are about their learning!

An important reminder about Valentine’s Day… if you send valentines with your students to share, please DO NOT send valentines with candy. We cannot give out and/or share candy. If you send valentines with candy, we will have to send the candy back home with your child. If your child would like to share something with their classmates, consider sending stickers, pencils, erasers, etc. Thank you for helping to keep all of our students safe!

Full STEAM Ahead: Make Around Emerson – Mrs. Blanford needs Volunteers!

Thank you to those who have already volunteered! We are excited to announce that we will be conducting a Literacy/MakerSpace Event for Emerson students on the morning of Friday, March 23rd! During this event, students will rotate through "stations" to participate in engaging reading and MakerSpace activities (e.g., write a secret code, build a boat, program a robot mouse). We are looking for parent volunteers who would like to help. Interested? Please respond using this form. We will follow-up to confirm assignments by early March. Thank you!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I know it sounds crazy but I am hoping for some good snow, I have heard from Molly almost daily that we haven’t made a snowman yet this year!
