Monday and Tuesday, students will have an opportunity to create a hygiene kit that will be donated to the Long Beach Rescue Mission next week. This is a special opportunity for your student to impact the life of another person in our community.
Tuesday is also Spring Picture Day. Proofs will be sent home with the option to buy the photos so no worries on turning in any money ahead of time.
The PTA received our revised bylaws back from the State Capitol and they have been approved! The changes were approved by the association at the September meeting and will now be in effect. That means that beginning April 1, association membership dues will increase to $10. All membership drive entries must be turned in by Monday, March 30! The winning class will be announced before Spring Break. Thanks for supporting your students, the school and the PTA.
We’ll see you out there, Kryssie Booth and your EPA-PTA Board
We are working toward raising the $40,000 still needed to fund PE and Science for next year. The Emerson Eagle Envelopes for Education came home this week. They are small manila envelopes that help make it a little more convenient to send in whatever donations you can when you participate in our No Fundraiser-Fundraiser. There aren’t any kits, candy, cookie dough or selling involved. It’s just giving to give. If we can raise about $60 dollars per student, we can meet this goal.
Make checks payable to: LBEF (Long Beach Educational Foundation) and put EMERSON in the memo!
Don’t forget to return your actions to the Cool The Earth table on Thursdays for prizes!
We will have coupons available at the table for you or visit http://www.cooltheearth.org/action-coupons to download and print the coupons at home.

We have extended our hygiene kit donation collection for ONE MORE WEEK! We need more lotion, chapstick, deodorant, water/juice and shampoo. Student Council wants to create 650 bags and we have enough for about 275 right now.
The classroom that brings in the most new PTA memberships in February will win a Class Pizza Party! Family members, friends, neighbors, all are encouraged to join! The more members we have, the STRONGER our voice! Membership is still $8.50 (set to increase to $10 next year) To join, download the form here.
