Be A Friend of Emerson. Invest in Your Children – Invest in Oakland.
The Emerson Oakland PTA (Parent Teacher Association) raises money for the Emerson Enrichment fund, which pays for school needs big and small not covered by the school budget - from essential things like books and classroom supplies to the extras that enrich students' lives, like field trips and music programs. We can't do it without you - your tax-deductible donation ensures that our kids keep on getting the things they need to thrive. Your donation helps sustain our success.
October Month of Giving Campaign
During the month of October, we ask Emerson families and friends to donate directly to the school. For families who can, please consider donating during this time, large of small, these donations go a long way to help support programing for our students.
The school budget does not cover many of Emerson's vital needs. The PTA does - with your support. Here’s a sampling of the essential programs, activities and clubs the PTA funds or supports:
- Teacher and staff mini-grants for events and supplies
- Computers and technology equipment
- Library books
- Music program
- Gardening program
- Outdoor education
- Field trips
- And more!
Sharing is Caring
Please consider asking friends, family, or businesses to help us support this cause. These donations go directly to support Oakland students and families.
