Working Together to Educate our Students for a Successful Future

Morning Study Hall Program


Morning supervision will not be available until 8:10 AM.  For those of you interested, we will be offering a supervised “study hall” each morning for a small cost.  Morning study hall hours will be Monday, 7:45 – 9:15, Tuesday – Friday, 7:45 – 8:15.  Students should not be dropped off before 7:45 unless they are in band as no supervision will be available.  Please click here for more information.

Late Start Mondays


Beginning on Monday, August 26 and for each Monday that school is in session, the school day for students will start at 9:30am.  Busses will pick up students one hour later than their regular morning pickup time.  Students will be dismissed at their regular time at the end of the day and bus drop off times in the afternoon will be unchanged.

PTO Scrip Program 2014


Scrip is a program that allows you to purchase prepaid cards for full face value, then redeem them for full face value, and Emmons keeps the difference as revenue.  Fundraising could not be easier.  We all shop for gas, groceries, clothing, go out to eat each and every day.  Put your dollars to work and raise money at the same time for Emmons PTO!  It's exciting because everybody wins.  Click here for the new updated form for 2014.  Please be sure to check out the order form often as there are always new retailers.  Mariano's and Dairy Queen just joined last month.  Ordering can also be done online at www.shopwithscrip.com.  Create a family account and our school enrollment code is 2LC731LD7847.  Keep in mind all orders are due on the 15th and 30th of each month by 3:30 pm.  Below is a list of due dates for your convenience.

And don’t forget to purchase your Auction Vacation Raffle ticket for a chance to win a $2000 vacation certificate; winner will be drawn at the auction.

 

Last year, we made $23,000 that supported our school and our kids. Our goal this year is to bring in $30,000 to help with technology purchases for classrooms. Please join us for an evening of fun and lively bidding to benefit the children of Emmons Grade School.
