Emerson Elementary

Kindergarten through fifth grade students attend one of five elementary schools. Each building espouses an individual philosophy and promotes "traditional" programs and awards, but all aspects of education point toward the same goal -- to encourage and to inspire students to develop their own intellectual capabilities, enthusiasm and curiosities. All elementaries have an "open door" policy, welcoming parental involvement, inviting grandparents to share special days, and extending building use to the public
