Changes at start of school year for Emerson Elementary
At this time, our calendar has not been finalized yet. Traditionally, we start the Wednesday after Labor Day. You will be notified once the calendar is finalized.
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 7, while 3rd grade students will begin school on Wednesday, September 6.
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. This is something we will be monitoring and reviewing as a school to determine if it is a good idea to continue in the future.
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 email@example.com or 360-563-7150.

We love our volunteers!
Snohomish is known for coming together to support education and our students, and our strength comes from the people who work and volunteer in our schools and across our district. Volunteers have many opportunities to work with children and schools by assisting on the playground, in the classroom or library, as well as tutoring, chaperoning field trips, serving on committees or assisting with school projects and newsletters. An hour of time can make a valuable difference.
This summer, our district streamlined its volunteer process. All volunteer applications and records are now maintained at the district office. As before, approved volunteer applications are valid for two calendar years from date of approval. The district office is maintaining a single database of applications on file (included is date of application and expiration date). Currently, more than 4,000 people are registered as active volunteers in our district.
