Letter from Jerry
With less than a month to go in the school year, it is time to re-focus our attention on an area of great importance to this year and the many years ahead: participation. It happens in classrooms, at events, at home, and in the generous gifts our families, faculty, and trustees make to the school.
In terms of keeping our school running, our entire community’s participation in the Annual Fund is a top priority. It not only fills the gap between tuition and the cost of running the school, it provides the institutional confidence to think big about our school’s exciting future. Please join the 100 percent of faculty, staff, and trustees who participate in the Annual Fund by making your gift, whether $5 or $5,000, atemerson-school.org/give.
You are also invited to to participate in the Building STEAM Campaign before it closes next month. While we have accomplished amazing things in this campaign and are using the new facilities every day, there is still more STEAM needed to make this project complete. This project is a game changer for our school community, and with your support, the impact will be even more positive and long lasting.
Thanks in advance for your support and stewardship of all things Emerson. It is your participation that makes the biggest impact. And, these donations are both tax deductible!

Donate Your Books to the Used Book Sale
May 28 – 29 in the Emerson Library
Now is the time to free up bookshelf space and donate to the annual Used Book Sale. Books (no textbooks please), movies, games, and puzzles for all ages are welcome, but remember that kids of all ages will be looking through them (i.e. please do not send books that may have inappropriate visuals). Children’s books will all be just 10 cents, and books for adults and games will never be more than 50 cents.
Emerson’s National Junior Honor Society will help with the sale and will select a worthy cause to which all of the proceeds will be donated.

Random Acts of Kindness for Jan
With Jan out for the remainder of the year with a broken knee and foot, many have asked what they can do for her. Her request: perform a random act of kindness. Pick up a notecard in her classroom and write what you did or will do, and we’ll add it to the Random Acts of Kindness wall.
Please Return Library Books By June 1st
Reminders about overdue books will be sent to parents after June 1st, and any books still missing after June 10th will be billed to individual accounts.
