✨ Emerson Weekly Update for The Week of 8/21✨


Hello Families!

This has been quite a thrilling weekend! I hope you are all staying safe. We are looking forward to a great week with weather predicted to clear by midday Monday. Here are our updates for the week:


During rainy days we will open three gates: Cypress, Lower San Jose, and the Auditorium. Students will either be directed to go straight to their classroom or to the auditorium depending on their arrival time. We will have lots of people available to help our little ones and those new to the school.



We do our best to predict when a rainy day dismissal is indicated. Tomorrow should not be require a rainy day dismissal. However, if we do, we will send messages through email and Dojo. 

Pick up spots only change for 1st grade and 4th Grade. 

1st grade will exit from the Auditorium DOOR and 4th grade will exit on Cypress from the LOWER CYPRESS gate.




THURSDAY, August 24th

This is a night for adult family members to visit their Star’s classroom to find out about what to expect this year. We do not have childcare or supervision for this event. Please plan accordingly.

3rd-5th Grade will be held 6:00pm-6:45pm

We had a great week last week discussing how we make our school a place where we all enjoy learning and growing together. I have seen so much kindness and care of each other already! This week we will focus on perseverance and empathy. 

We use StarBucks to reinforce positive contributions to our community. This week we are working to collect 1000 StarBucks as a school. Our reward for this week will be announced on Thursday! We are excited to see our Stars grow and succeed. 

This is a great time to point out and discuss empathy and perseverance at home. How can these traits help us be successful and help others succeed as well?


Thanks everyone for a wonderful first week! We can’t wait to see all the wonderful things to come! 


Have a wonderful evening ♥️

Mrs. AJ
