Start of school year for Emerson Elementary
In the Snohomish School District, Central and Emerson are unique compared to other schools in the K-6 setting, in that the students transition buildings from 2nd to 3rd grade. To ensure a smooth transition for our incoming 3rd graders we are implementing the same process our District uses for the 7th and 9th grade transitions. Our 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students will begin school on Thursday, September 6, while 3rd grade students will begin school on Wednesday, September 5.
The first day of school at Emerson Elementary, 3rd grade students will receive support in helping them understand the expectations, experience a typical day’s routine, begin new friendships with their fellow 3rd grade classmates, and get to know all of the staff. This will help the 3rd grade students to have a great start on Wednesday, and make Thursday’s start day for all students much clearer and calmer.
Your feedback will be important in our future planning, and you can expect a survey from us regarding this experience. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-563-7150.
Thank you for your support.
