Triennial Passport to the World Event is April 21, 2017

Passport to the World: Emerson’s triennial celebration of cultures, heritage, and diversity

passport2014-55Passport to the World is an ESPO-sponsored celebration held every three years. Emerson families are given the opportunity to showcase the diversity of heritage and culture at our school. So get ready to travel the world on April 21, 2017.

You will be invited to travel from one corner of the globe to another in our very own gymnasium while collecting stamps in an Emerson passport. Along the way, you may wish to view or participate in various performances, and sample foods from each country.

Please Consider Being an Ambassador
The 2014 Passport to the World was a huge success because of the tremendous participation we had from our Emerson families. Please consider being an ambassador to a country. It may be a country where you are from, studied/worked, or even your favorite travel destination. Feel free to team-up with another Emerson family to showcase your country with a table-top display and activity. Families with Middle School students, please reach out to your student’s Middle School Advisor so you can work together. Every family is encouraged to bring a dish to share (perhaps an old family favorite).

If you would like to become a country ambassador, please email your name(s) and country to Caroline Begola at by December 19th, 2016.

Should you have further questions, feel free to discuss this special event with any of the Passport committee:

  • Jennifer Ratliff-Moss
  • Christine Kim
  • Silvia Nor
  • Jamie Sinha
  • Caroline Begola
  • Linda Lakshminarayanan

We forward to hearing from you!
