Emerson kids participate in DC High School Walk-Out

Students from several DC area public schools walked out Tuesday only a day after Montgomery County students protested president-elect Donald Trump.

If you squint, that’s Amitai, Stephan, Sasha and Alex in the middle!  We are so proud of any young person who chooses to speak up about his or her values, whatever those values may be.

Emerson Arts Salon

The first ever Emerson Arts Salon brought together varied Art and meaningful Poetry by the students of Emerson.

The first ever Arts Salon sprouted from the brain of Ms. Early and with the assistance of her students and those of Mr. Brown, the salon came together with great success. Supported (as always) by the main office as well as by poetry from the other literature courses, the salon opened to the public on May 5th and truly made the Great Room, well, great!

The event was so much fun that we are already thinking about when we can do it again! Please enjoy some photos of the event.
