Matching PACE Donation on Giving Tuesday-THANK YOU to all who donated!

Not only did we meet the $5,000 goal needed to receive matching funds from a generous anonymous donor, but we exceeded our goal by $1,420, for a grand total of $11,430!! As with all donations to PACE, these additional funds will help support our great programs and pay for field trips and teacher supplies, among many other things that make our school a great place for kids to learn.

What is P.A.C.E.? 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 with credit card through Paypal by visiting (see Paypal button mid-page) or checks can be dropped off in the office.
