This year we are proud to welcome several arts initiatives to Emerson. First up, the Luna Dance Institute will begin a three year partnership with Emerson to help create a sustainable dance program for all students at Emerson. The goal of this partnership is to create opportunities for students to express themselves using movement.
When Ms. Grill's 4th/5th combo finished testing they hopped on a bus and went on an overnight with Vida Verde education. They explored the coastline and the woods. They got up close and personal with slugs and worms. They befriended the camp goats. It was a great way to de-compress while still learning.
Understanding the OUSD Options Process
This Thursday, December 5th, from 5:30 to 6:30pm
Especially for families with students entering TK, Kindergarten, and 5th grade, OUSD staff will come to Emerson to explain the school choice and enrollment process in Oakland. Staff will be available to help families fill out forms indicating their school choices for Round 1 of the enrollment lottery, which is open now and closes on February 7, 2020.
This event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be available.
