🌟EMERSON WEEKLY UPDATE 9/5/23🌟
Happy September Emerson Families!
Here are your updates for this week:
Tomorrow is an early dismissal because it is TUESDAY.
We have had several neighbors approach us about cars picking up students and blocking driveways. This cannot happen. You must stop and/or park in legal parking spaces. Please be especially mindful of this on Tuesdays.
Also, please refrain from crossing with your child in the middle of the block. It is dangerous. Please use crosswalks.
We will be working with BPD to monitor these situations. Thanks for your cooperation.
🌟5th Grade OSS Meeting🌟
We will be holding a meeting for all 5th grade parents to discuss Outdoor Science School happening at the end of this month, TOMORROW at 6:00 pm in the auditorium. It is very important that families attend especially if you are still deciding on attendance.
We will be working this week to earn 1100 StarBucks by focusing on Safety and School Stewardship. We really want to make sure that we are working together to take care of our school and following guidelines on the playground to keep each other safe.
This is a good time to discuss at home how we take care of our environment and spaces we share with others.
We will announce our reward on Thursday.
🌟Morning Stars Program🌟
Our Morning Stars program will begin tomorrow. If you have registered you will recieve a separate email later this evening with all the details.
