    Greetings Families!

    Here are the updates for this week as we move towards winter break:

    ⭐️PBIS/Starbucks Goals

    Students are working towards 200 Starbucks per grade level. We are working on helping each other succeed and making responsible choices. This is a good time to talk at home about what it means to be responsible.

    If we succeed we will be having a "Snow Day" on Friday. Students will be given the opportunity to investigate making fake snow and having "snowball games." 

    We are looking for donations of new men's white athletic socks to help make our "snowballs."  

    ⭐️School Site Council/ELAC

    Wednesday, December 6th at 6:00pm will be our School Site Council and ELAC meeting on ZOOM. 


    ⭐️Chuck E. Cheese Dine Out!

    There will be a dine out opportunity Wednesday, December 6th at Chuck E. Cheese. Join us for fun and to raise money for our school. 

    Thanks so much and have a wonderful evening!

    Good Evening Emerson Families!

    We hope that you had a lovely break with friends and family. We are excited for a full week back and can't believe we have arrived at the end of November already. Here are announcement for this week.

    ⭐️SQUARE 1 ART

    Last call for Square 1 Art! Deadline for all orders is Wednesday, November 29. Visit square1art.com/shop to order.

    ⭐️PBIS/StarBucks Goals

    We are working to make sure that we are taking care of our equipment during play time and following our Peaceful Playgrounds guidelines. Ask your Stars about Coach Luke and how he works with them on positive play time.

    ⭐️Scholar Goals

    December is a short month. It is an exciting time for little ones and sometimes difficult to keep focused. These weeks are an important time to solidify learning before the break. We hope you will work with us to help make sure students are ready for the end of the semester.

    ⭐️Looking Forward

    December 22 is the end of the semester and the last day before winter break. We will also have our Winter Performance "Let it Snow! A Winter Sing" that day. 

    ⭐️Thanks so much, have a lovely evening. We are eager to see everyone tomorrow!
