DEADLINE FOR 5TH DEDICATIONS IS SATURDAY:  Every year parents of 5th graders are offered the opportunity to submit for the yearbook, a baby photo of their student along with a dedication. Please keep dedications under approximately 40 words. Please send in a digital photo and dedication directly to Melissa Manrique's email, by Saturday,, May 20.  Due to the huge time commitment it takes to get all these dedications in the yearbook and layout before our deadline for printing, no dedications will be taken after the May 20th deadline.         Thanks from the Yearbook Editors

LAST CHANCE FOR LOST & FOUND:  There is an abundance of unclaimed items in our Lost and Found located by the gym, including hats, gloves, shirts, jackets and snow pants.  Please have your child look over the articles there to see if anything looks familiar.  Anything unclaimed after Monday, May 22 will be donated to charity.

Just stop by or bring a blanket and plan to stay for a while.  We hope to see you there! Please contact Kerry Romberg or Andrea Kleve with any questions 630.682.2055.


School Physicals:

All students entering Kindergarten and 6th grade next year are required to have a physical exam and a record of immunizations completed on an Illinois Department of Human Services School Physical form within the year before starting school in August 2017. The physical exam is expected to be turned in before school begins. Please mail or drop off the completed physical exam form as soon as possible. An IHSA sports physical form does not qualify to meet this requirement.  

Medication Pick Up Reminder:

Any medication that is now being administered to your child during this 2016-2017 school year will be ready to be picked up by a parent or a designated adult by the last full day of school. The medications will not be sent home with students. Medications not picked up will be discarded and will not be kept for the next school year. Each school year we need a new doctor’s order to continue giving medication. These forms can be picked up in the Health Office or downloaded from the CUSD200 website.                                                                                                                                Thank you

ARE YOU MOVING?  If you will be moving over the summer and your children will not be returning to Emerson, please let us know.  Or, if you know of any children who will be five by September 1, 2017, or new families moving into our attendance area, please call the office, 630.682.2055.  

BASP REGISTRATION: BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM:  Currently, there are openings for Emerson’s Fall Before and After School Program (BASP).  The cost is $9.50 per session.  Families are required to pay a $50.00 non-refundable deposit to ensure space for next year.  Families who have participated in BASP before are asked to fill out new forms to register for next year.  Registration forms and more information are available online and in the office.  Questions?  Please call Emerson’s BASP Director, Mrs. Gladkowski, 630.682.8478.
