Thanks to each and every person who attended the event, purchased a ticket, participated in the live and silent auctions, donated an item to a classroom basket, volunteered their time, and continues to support Emerson Academy! The Kickin' It For Kids Gala was a tremendous success. Not only did we reach our fund-raising goal of 10K, we exceeded our goal by almost seven thousand dollars!!! The funds raised at this year's event will be used directly to benefit Emerson Academy students.
Thank you to everyone involved!!!

Busy Starfish Hands

The Starfish class has come up with a very creative and beautiful way to smudge the windows. The kids dipped their hands in paint, finger painted on paper, then used the window to get rid of the extra paint. The result was stunning! If you have a chance, stroll by the classroom windows and admire the Starfish art. Kudos to Ms. Cheyenne for such a fun and "hands on" activity!

Double Play!

Two Emerson students, Zoe and Gabriel, have found a place on the Round Rock Express team in the Hutto Challenger League. Hutto High School hosted the opening day ceremonies on Saturday and a fantastic time was had by all, especially the players. The league was formed by three dads of kids with special needs and it's first year in Hutto is officially underway. The next game is Saturday, April 16th at 12:30. If you see the sluggers around the school, give
em' a pat on the back and wish them well with their season!
