Dear Emerson Families,
It is estimated that the raw crushing power of an eagle’s talon can be up to 1,000 pounds of pressure per square inch. Imagine that! If we had talons for hands, we could palm a grapefruit and explode it upon impulse. If we harness the power embodied by our own mascot, and we work together with precision and purpose, we can explode the possibilities and create tremendous opportunities for our kids.
With that, I welcome you back to the 2019-20 school year! I am honored and excited to have been welcomed into the Emerson Community in June and to serve as your incoming principal. I spent time this summer with Ms. Gofonia, Interim Principal, and Mrs. Ramos, our new IEIS, getting prepared for your return and for the selection of new staff. I am pleased to announce we will begin our year as a full staff ready for kids!
