School does not stop for our students when the summer bell rings at the end of the school year. We encourage our students to continuously learn and grow over the summer months. Our Library and Computer Lab doors are open for scheduled events most Wednesdays throughout the summer and many of our teachers volunteer their time to work with the children during the time these programs are being held.
Emerick's faculty and staff have created a professional learning environment that continuously seeks out new learning experiences that change with the growing need of education in the ever-changing world in which we are raising our children. The Emerick community is supportive in all endeavors related to the education of our children and they work together to find success for all.
