Hello, Emerson Families!


Emerson Elementary is a magical place where our students, parents and staff come together like family. We are a PK-5 building that believes in opportunities for student leadership. Our staff cares deeply about educating the whole child and providing engaging work for our students. Our Emerson PTO cares about creating memorable experiences for children and their families. Together, with our world class curriculum, Emerson Elementary is a place where your children will flourish and grow. If you are new to Emerson, welcome to the family!


Thank you for your collaboration on what will go down in history as an unforgettable 2019-2020 school year. We had three wonderfully, typical quarters of the school year at Emerson and ended with one atypical quarter of remote learning from everyone’s homes. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we searched and discovered new ways to come together through Zoom sessions, recorded videos, the use of voice recordings on the SeeSaw platform, our Twitter activities @LkwdEmerson, our parade, our 5th grade reverse parade, and so much more. We all grew our technology skills out of necessity and we used them to connect.  I could not be more proud of the work that we did and I am grateful for the new ways in which we partnered to support our students. We learned so much and most importantly, we learned how much we matter to each other.


We look forward to the connections we will make in our 2020-2021 school year. 

Throughout the year, whether we are in a remote learning environment, partial return, or when we are lucky enough to be “All In”,  please know that we are determined to provide the safest environment for your children so they can engage in meaningful work.  Although the world can feel like a different place these days, know that Emerson Elementary has a loving staff that feels like family. We are committed to looking out for the safety and the learning of your children because we see them as our children too.


Your Partner in Education,
