PTA Fair Share

Be sure to submit your Fair Share and PTA dues. 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.

There are a couple of ways to pay your Fair Share. You can pay online here (there is a small convenience fee for the online transaction) or you can download the paper form and return it to school with your child.

Parents please join us for a REACH information meeting Monday, October 2nd at 7 p.m. in the Sandburg Middle School auditorium. Invited speaker is Deborah Lee, District Coordinator for Professional Learning–REACH. The presentation will cover a program overview, identification, expectations, appeals, and more.  There will be an added focus on those families new to REACH. In addition, experienced REACH parents will be on hand for a Q&A session to address  parent questions and/or concerns. This program is open to all parents including second grade parents wanting to learn more about the program. 


Emerson Elementary School Directory is Going Green! Our school directory will be on-line this year instead of a printed paper copy distributed to families. This directory will include all family, student and staff contact information for Emerson Elementary School. The website is called Directory Spot and can be accessed via the internet or free mobile app. See below for easy instructions on how to create an account for yourself and access the directory. Please note that users have been given access based on the e-mail on file with the school through the registration process.  

Step 1: Click on the link in the e-mail received from Directory Spot (be sure to check your SPAM folder if you don't see it). Create a password for your account.  All users should have received an e-mail from Directory Spot on 9/12/17. If you did not receive an e-mail or cannot create an account with your e-mail, please contact Vanitha Lanoue at vanitha.nama@att.net.

Step 2:  Login to your account via the website.  The information is organized by family, teacher, grade and class.  


Step 3: Download the mobile app “Directory Spot” and log in to your account. The information is slightly condensed here and available by families or teachers.  There is also quick access to our Emerson school calendar!
