Emerson Community Charter Parent Communications Form


Mandatory TdaP Vaccination


6th graders! LAUSD requires your child’s health records are up to date. Please send in a copy of a valid TdaP record. Usually, it is as simple as calling your child’s doctor’s office for the record. TdaP vaccinations are good for 10 years. If your child needs a new vaccination, please make it a priority to get it done before the end of the semester. Return to the school nurse. Your child will not be able to start 7th grade without a valid TdaP.


PACE needs volunteers

PACE is run by a handful of dedicated volunteers, but one of those volunteers moved and next year two others are leaving. We really need parent help or we can’t continue providing all that we do. PACE doesn’t just raise money, we organize some of the great community-building events that you enjoy every year like Camp Emerson for incoming 6th graders, the Community Potluck in the fall and teacher appreciation week and the holiday lunch for staff. 
Please email for more information.

Why donate to PACE? Partnership in Academics and Community for Emerson (P.A.C.E.) is the parent group working to help teachers and administrators at Emerson continue to make our school the best place it can be.
Ever wonder why our school has such great programs? That’s because of YOU and your generous donations!

PACE fundraising pays for:

  • Teachers’ Aides
  • Technology in the classroom and IT support
  • Field trips & need based scholarships
  • Speech & Debate
  • Performing Arts
  • Basic supplies like copy paper, pens and pencils
  • Curriculum support and professional development for teachers
  • Academy programs and equipment

These programs could not exist without your help and some could go away. Our goal is for every family at Emerson to donate $750 per child.  We realize that this is not possible for all families so we ask that EVERY family donate what they can.

Donations can be made through Paypal by visiting (see Paypal button mid-page) or checks can be dropped off in the office.
