Emerson Annual Fund: All In, All Win!
Thank you for making a difference with your support
At Emerson, as at most independent schools, tuition does not fully cover operating costs. Annual Fund gifts help bridge the gap, and we are counting on your gift this fall.
Your gift will help to sustain this creative, nurturing school. It will help Emerson’s passionate educators engage our bright students by tapping into their curiosity and encouraging their search for answers. It will inspire in our children a love for learning that will last a lifetime. When we are all in, we all win!

Emerson Book Fair at Nicola’s Books Extends Through Saturday
Just Mention Emerson at Nicola’s Checkout
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Emerson book fair on Sunday evening—shoppers, performers, volunteers, your support is greatly appreciated! If you were not able to join us last night, there is still time to support the Emerson library and purchase books for Emerson classrooms. Stop in at Nicola’s all week long and let them know you are with Emerson School. Your purchases will be credited to the overall book fair total. Gift cards and teacher wish list books are also available throughout the week. Thank you!
Grandparent and Special Friends’ Day
Tuesday, Nov. 22, 1:00pm in the AIC
This is an annual opportunity for students to share everything they’re learning with their grandparents and special friends, and to show them around school. Invitations have been mailed to grandparents (only sent if you indicated during enrollment/re-enrollment that you would like your grandparent to receive an invitation) and we look forward to seeing many next week.

Giving Tuesday; Curbside Coffee!
Thank you for all you do for Emerson. We look forward to serving you on Giving Tuesday
When we return to school on Giving Tuesday, November 29, please accept a complimentary cup of coffee or cocoa after dropping off your children. It’s our way of saying thanks to you! You don’t even need to get out of your car, just pull forward toward the middle school and an Emerson Trustee or staff member will take your order for a steaming cup of coffee or cocoa and bring it right back to you.
