🌟Emerson Weekly Update🌟

Good Evening Families,

Thanks for a wonderful week! We appreciated seeing you at Back to School Night and are looking forward to partnering with you throughout the year. Here are the updates for the week of August 28th.


🌟Morning Stars Program

We are trying very hard to be able to fund the morning care program for early arrivals and kinder Late Birds. Currently, we are shy of the amount of students needed to support the program. We are reaching out one more time to see if you would be interested in this program. 

The flyer is attached.

If you have submitted your interest form we will be reaching out next week with a hopeful start date of September 4th. However, we need at least 5 more families.

🌟After School Care

Both Burbank Parks and Rec and the Boys and Girls Club have additional openings for after school care here at Emerson for grade 1-5. Please visit our website for additional information or go to their websites directly.

🌟PBIS/StarBucks Goals

This week our Stars did a wonderful job meeting our PBIS/StarBucks goal. This week we will focus on RESPONSIBILITY. This is a good time to talk at home about what makes us responsible both at home and at school.

Part of school is learning how to gain independence through out the years as we move towards secondary school. Even TK students can move towards independence and understanding responsibility when expected to have responsibilities around the house. Examples of this may include staying on a schedule, helping with a pet, or having chores. 

Our goal is to earn 1100 StarBucks as a school. Our reward will be announced Thursday afternoon if we are successful!

🌟School Site Council

Please check your email from last week for information on our School Site Council happening on Wednesday evening. Another message will go out Tuesday evening.

🌟Traffic Safety

Please be courteous of neighbors when picking up and dropping of students. Please refrain from double parking and/or using driveways not belonging to the school. Also, please walk to the nearest crosswalk to walk students across the street. We have seen too many close calls and want to make sure that we are doing our best to keep our Stars safe.

Thanks so much and have a wonderful evening!

Mrs. AJ
