  • Luna Dance at Emerson

    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.

  • Camping at Vida Verde

    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.

    On the first day of school, all teachers and staff greeted our students wearing Sanctuary School t-shirts designed to support OUSD's English Language Learners program. Ms. Minor was looking stylish in her t-shirt to greet the new class of TKers!
