Join Emerson’s First Robotics Team
Open to Students Entering 4th and 5th Grade
Emerson is looking for students entering 4th and 5th grade to compete on our very first robotics team. Students will be introduced to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots that complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. Emerson is planning to field two teams of 10 students each for our initial season, which begins July 9.
This is a serious commitment as students must put in a minimum of 5 hours a week for the
entire season. Since space is limited, all interested students are required to submit an
application by June 29th.

Summer All-School Read
How I Discovered Poetry, by Marilyn Nelson
Middle school students will once again be asked to read a book over the summer. The book we’ve chosen for this summer read is How I Discovered Poetry, by Marilyn Nelson. This powerful story, written as a series of poems, follows the life of an African American girl during the 1950s and 60s. It reminds us all about the similarities we all share and how compassion and perseverance can trump all. We know that students will enjoy this book. Books are available for order through MBS Direct beginning on June 1st (all other books will be available beginning July 1).
+ Order through MBS Direct on June 1
