Hello Emerson Families~

Wow, what an amazing 2016-2017 school-year we have had here at Emerson Elementary!  The staff and students worked tirelessly to make every moment of education count!  I cannot thank you as a parent enough for the support and enthusiasm you have for Emerson!  We realize that you have many choices when it comes to the education of your children and we want to thank you for choosing Owosso Public Schools! 

Save the Date:  Wednesday, June 7th at 7:00 PM is our 5th grade Celebration in the Emerson Gym.  This is to celebrate the fact that the students have successfully completed their elementary school years and are making the move to Owosso Middle School.  Our Kindergarten Celebration will also take place in the Emerson Gym on Thursday, June 8th at 9:15.  This too is a celebration of the fact that the students have completed Kindergarten and will be moving on to 1st grade.   These are two very special events in the school-life of a child.  Congratulations to each of them and to the parents for supporting them!

Congratulations is in order for two Emerson Staff Members who will be ending their educational career today! Mrs. Gloria McCurry, Paraprofessional and Mrs. Joni Westbrook, Emerson Head Cook, are moving on to a more relaxing path in life after serving our school district for many years!  They both have plans to relax and enjoy the finer things in life.  Their kind and caring demeanor will be missed and even though they won’t be back at Emerson at the start of the 2017-18 school-year, their memory will forever be in our hearts!  Congratulations, Mrs. McCurry and Mrs. Westbrook!  Have fun and think of us often!

Do you feel like all you do is correct your child’s behavior?  All they hear is what not to do?  Well, you’re not alone.  Check out this article on 11 Encouraging Phrases to use with your child.

Please note that Report Cards are being given to the students to take home next Thursday, the last day of school.  If for some reason a student will not be here on the last day of school, the Office will be open for pick-up through Friday, June 16, 2017.  Please call ahead to make sure that someone will be in the Office, the number to use is 725-7361.

If you are in search of activities to keep your child’s mind going throughout the Summer, the local public library has a fantastic Summer-long Reading Program.  For more information on this program, call 725-5134.  Please continue to practice math facts throughout as well.  This can be as simple as verbally quizzing your child while riding in the car or while on a walk or bike ride.  Learning can happen in a variety of places!

The 2017-2018 school-year is set to begin on Thursday, August 24, 2017.  A postcard from Emerson will be sent out in mid-August announcing the Open House date and time.  Thanks again for an amazing year!

 Have a safe, fun and memorable Summer!  As always…Go Tigers and GO TROJANS!!!

Take Care~
