  • Thank you and farewell, Ms. Alex!

    Dear Emerson Community - 

    I'm sad to announce that Ms. Alex Walton has resigned from her role at Emerson as of August 9, 2017, in order to focus on her family.  Ms. Alex has served Emerson students, families and staff.  Most notably, in her role as Community School Manager, she promoted parent involvement, helped build a more positive school culture, fostered community partnerships to support children and families, and built a robust Coordination of Services Team. We thank her for her service to the Emerson community, and wish her well and success in her future endeavors.  
    Please feel free to reach out to me with questions.
    In partnership,
    Heather Palin
