We are the Heart of Emerson! This year, the Heart of Emerson is one of the ONLY ways to raise money for all of our programs and services which benefit every Emerson student.
THIS YEAR THE PTA WILL RAISE & SPEND $190K+ TO SUPPORT:
- Weekly Art for every grade - the ONLY BUSD elementary school to provide this!*
- Weekly Physical Education for every grade - a credentialed P.E. teacher means full-time teachers have more time to teach!*
- Librarian and English language development (ELD) support
- Teacher professional development, mini-grants, supplies
- Racial equity programs - workshops for Room Parents, PTA Board; Equity Circle
- Office support - material distribution, staff support, attendance
- Covid-19 support: distance learning resources and hybrid learning preparation
*Because they teach every grade every week, Art teacher Lucy Ames and Coach Alessandra Robinson know EVERY student at Emerson!
Please shop with us at Donor 360, 30%-50% of your purchase price will go to Emerson Elementary PTA in Berkeley.
