Wow!! So much glowing feedback from Dr. McNamara and our Board Members!
Thank you for all of your hard work day in and day out. It was evident to Dr. McNamara and to our Governing Board members. Both at the Board Meeting and here at Emory, Dr. McNamara acknowledged the caring culture in your classrooms. Additionally, our students’ abilities to share about what they were learning as well as their high levels of engagement were also highlighted. Trustee Elliott-Sanders thanked one of our students for sharing his thinking he responded “it was my honor”.

We will recognize classes with best attendance for the month of September/October at flag salute on Monday. BRING YOUR TROPHIES.

Thank you for your feedback on the updated rosters. We will have final drafts in your mail boxes Monday afternoon. New groups begin meeting on Tuesday. Eugenia will also begin her her new schedule on Tuesday.
I encourage you to have your students visit the book fair. This is a fundraiser for our school. As we have made less money this year than last year at each of our fundraisers, I am concerned about missing out on opportunities at the book fair as well. Please bring your students by for a visit.
Ed Foundation Grant:
I encourage you to apply for an Ed Foundation mini-grant. All grants are due Dec. 4 by the end of the day.
Please click this link for the application. See email from Amy Cooper for more details.
Thanks to Angela and our Student Council for helping Emory recycle. In addition to being great for the environment and our campus, this is a great fundraiser for Student Council. Thank you for participating!
To limit the amount of disruption to your teaching, please put your BLUE RECYCLE BIN and BLUE BOX FOR PLASTIC BOTTLES outside your classroom door prior to going to first recess. Student Council reps will walk through the halls and clear the recycling without opening your door!
