Emerson Elementary School

School Highlights 2016 - 2017

  • School-Wide Reading Program: Emerson continued its school-wide reading program that encourages students to read outside the school day. As a result the number of books our childrent read each year continues to increase!  Celebrations were held monthly to recognize students that met their reading goals.
  • Kidzone Tutoring Program: Last year our students received after school tutoring services through our Kidzone program. These students received an extra hour of instruction in reading and/or math each day they attended.
  • Parent and Community Outreach: We continue to place an emphasis on our parent and community outreach programs. Our Parent/Community Specialist coordinates our family nights, our school-wide open house, and our parent meetings.
  • Padres Comprometidos was implemented at Emerson.  It is a parent engagement program whose primary goal is the fostering of a strong connection between schools and parents.  The program builds the capacity of parents to acquire the skills they need to effectively engage with schools and play a leading role in preparing their children for college. 
  • Bell Choir: This year our music teacher initiated Emerson’s first Bell Choir.  A group of third grade students learned how to play the bells and performed in three concerts.
  • Girls on the Run:  Emerson had nineteen girls in the fourth and fifth grade participate in our Girls on the Run Program this fall.  This program inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Emerson's Mission Statement

Inspiring excellence: every grownup, every child, every day.

This building report card is a brief summary of how your school and students are performing and the impact of your local school improvement plan. However, it should not be used as a single source to judge students or school accomplishments. No single report can tell the whole story of a district's or school's education program. This report card does not provide information about curriculum, teaching methods, special programs, the "climate" of your school or the performance of individual teachers or administrators.

In addition, this report card is not a way of "rating" or "ranking" schools. Because of the distinct community and student characteristics, direct comparison between schools or districts are invalid. Rank-ordering school districts or schools is a clear misuse of the information. Rather, the information should be used to access local strengths and weaknesses based on past performance and to plan program improvements.
