  • Homeroom of the Week:  This week’s Homeroom of the Week is Ms. De Paula’s French class.  Ms. De Paula describes her homeroom as being fun-loving, very excited to learn French, and she says that they are also like little sponges, absorbing it all. They are a class that has lots of interesting philosophical discussions.  What she likes best about teaching this class is that she has students that really want to learn and that they are a fun-loving group. This class is currently working on studying the family unit. They are learning what to call family members in French, how to describe them, and they are also making a family tree and studying verb conjugations. The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is the family tree. Thank you to Ms. De Paula and to her 4th period class for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.

  • Good morning Eagles and Pandas. Remember that during lunch and between classes, phones must be away and headphones out of ears. Don’t be a slave to your tech! Talk to the humans around you. Staff may help you with this by holding onto your oppressive devices in the office for you.
  • If you ride your bike to school, that’s awesome. Remember to be safe and careful, especially when crossing streets. Make eye contact with drivers, use hand signals to tell people which way you’re turning, and slow down to make sure drivers see you. We want everyone to make it school and back home safe and sound. Be safe out there!
  • Counting Candy Canes and Kisses:  Are you good at estimating and guessing? If so, have we got the game for you! Stop by the IDC today at lunch and see if you can guess how many items are in each of 6 jars of candy. The student that comes closest to guessing the actual amount of candy in each jar, without going over, wins the jar of candy. If you miss this game at lunch, no worries, the jars will be in the Emerson and Da Vinci offices for the remainder of the week so you can go there to make a guess. Good luck!
  • Today is Winter Wonderland Wednesday, it’s wonderful to see you all bundled up for winter. Tomorrow is Throwback Thursday. This decade is cool but the previous ones are a blast so dress in your favorite decade attire. The decade doesn't matter as long as your clothes are school appropriate.
  • Our second dance of the year is this Friday! December 15th from 7:30 to 9:30, our Blast From the Past Winter Dance will celebrate the style and culture of 1950’s Hollywood. As always, the snacks and drinks will be available for purchase from the snack shack, as well as a movie room and an open gym. Once again, Friday, December 15th from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm, and it is a semi-formal dance. Hope to see you there!

  • Homeroom of the Week: This week’s Homeroom of the Week is Mr. Glantz's 8th grade Science class. Mr. Glantz  describes his homeroom as being very excited, inquisitive and very unique.  What he likes best about teaching this class is that everybody is willing to share ideas and they always ask a lot of questions. This class is currently working on learning about waves & the electromagnetic spectrum. The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is designing and building a cell phone blocker that blocks the signal of your phone. Thank you to Mr. Glantz and to his 4th period class for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.
  • Come one, come all:  The Emerson, Da Vinci & Harper Combined Jr. High Orchestras Winter Concert, “A Dance With France,” is today! The concert will be held at Davis High School's Brunelle Hall on Monday, December 11th, 2017, and will start at 7 PM. The Intermediate and Advanced Orchestras, involving students from Emerson, Da Vinci, and Harper Junior High Schools, will be performing a concert of French music, with pieces written by Bizet, Saint-Saens, Offenbach, Satie, and others. And as well, the Advanced Orchestra will perform a rarely played piece of music, a quartet written by unknown composer Joseph Bologne, Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges. He was the son of a plantation owner and African born slave mother, who grew to become a talented violinist, conductor of a great French orchestra, and a very talented French classical composer, one of Mozart’s contemporaries. President John Adams once called him “the most accomplished man in Europe.”  We are very excited to perform this rarely played piece of beautiful music. Emerson Jr. High School Principal, Scott Thomsen, will be the Master of Ceremonies.  The concert is free and open to the public.  All students, families, and friends are invited to join us for this concert and celebration of the musical growth and achievements of the Jr. High musicians! See you at the show!

  • Good morning Eagles and Pandas. Remember that during lunch and between classes, phones must be away and headphones out of ears. Don’t be a slave to your tech! Talk to the humans around you. Staff may help you with this by holding onto your oppressive devices in the office for you.

  • Homeroom of the Week: This week’s Homeroom of the Week is Ms. Pickett’s World Studies class.  Ms. Pickett describes her homeroom as being a very excited group of students who are good at arguing, for better or for worse.  What she likes best about teaching this class is there are a bunch of history nerds which makes for good class discussions. This class is currently working on  making board games about the Middle Ages for Da Vinci’s 7th grade Medieval Game Night. The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is  making their board games and doing different activities to learn more about the middle ages. Thank you to Ms. Pickett and to her 4th period class for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.

On Monday, December 4th, we are excited to be able to offer Nightmare on Puberty St. – a professionally produced live theatre program presented free of charge to our 7th and 8th grade students as a community benefit of Kaiser Permanente. Comedy, music, dance, and emotional drama take students on a tongue-in-cheek journey along the rocky road to adulthood.

It gives students an opportunity to talk about crucial health issues they may have found difficult to discuss, including:

  peer pressure and self-esteem

first feelings of sexual attraction

depression and thoughts of suicide

coping with violent environments

talking with parents and peers

decision-making skills to resist negative peer pressure

the uses of positive peer pressure and how to be a good friend

the impact of labels and name-calling

how to seek health information and help from adults

If you do not want your student to participate in this opportunity, please send an email opting your student out of this activity to John Campbell, Vice Principal at jcampbell@djusd.net.

If you are interested in learning more or downloading A Parent’s Guide: Nightmare on Puberty St. from the Kaiser website, please go to the following URL:  http://etnortherncalifornia.kaiserpermanente.org/nightmare-on-puberty-st-parents-and-educators/

  • Homeroom of the Week: This week’s Homeroom of the Week is Ms. Koblik’s English class.  Ms. Koblik describes her homeroom as being amazing and as having high energy. She says that it is filled with brave, kind people who all have individual personalities and that each of them is all special and caring.  What she likes best about teaching this class is the amazing ideas that students share about literature and about life. This class is currently working on Greek Gods and Heroes. The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is creating presentations that will include homemade props. Thank you to Ms. Koblik and to her 4th period class for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.

  • Please check the lost and found! It’s the big yellow bin near the filtered water dispenser, just outside the MPR. You might find that thing you love so much that you thought lost forever!
  • Good morning Eagles and Pandas. Remember that during lunch and between classes, phones must be away and headphones out of ears. If this is not the case, any staff member can ask for your phone and it will be delivered to the appropriate office. Teachers set the rules in their classes; please follow them. Don’t be a slave to your tech! Talk to the humans next to you!
  • If you ride your bike to school, that’s awesome. Please do be sure to ride safely and carefully on streets. When exiting a bike path onto a street, slow down and be alert to cars already in the road. Also, be extremely careful when crossing streets, like Humboldt and Imperial.  Make eye contact with drivers, use hand signals to tell people which way you’re turning, and slow down to make sure drivers see you. We want everyone to make it school and back home safe and sound. Be safe out there!
  • Homeroom of the Week: This week’s Homeroom of the Week is Mrs. Centers’ Study Skills class.  Mrs. Centers describes her homeroom as being very entertaining and very hard working.  What she likes best about teaching this class is the different personalities of the students. This class is currently working on their individual work from all of their classes. The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is completing their homework from all of their classes. Thank you to Mrs. Centers and to her 4th period class for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.
  • This is the last week for the Boxtop Challenge:Bring Boxtops to your 4th period class in order to win the Goblet of Spirit and collect money to help your school!

Our new challenge is called the Boxtop Challenge and from now until November 17th we are challenging you to collect as many boxtops as you possibly can and bring them to your 4th period class. Each boxtop you bring in gives 10 cents to the school and this change adds up quickly when everyone brings them in. All money earned goes towards our campus activities, clubs and athletics so bringing boxtops to school is really like giving a gift to yourself! The 4th period class who brings in the most boxtops by November 17th will be able to proudly display the Goblet of Spirit and will participate in the Tournament of Spirit ceremony which includes a raffle and class treat.

On Monday, December 4th, we are excited to be able to offer Nightmare on Puberty St. – a professionally produced live theatre program presented free of charge to our 7th and 8th grade students as a community benefit of Kaiser Permanente. Comedy, music, dance, and emotional drama take students on a tongue-in-cheek journey along the rocky road to adulthood.

It gives students an opportunity to talk about crucial health issues they may have found difficult to discuss, including:

 

  • peer pressure and self-esteem
  • first feelings of sexual attraction
  • depression and thoughts of suicide
  • coping with violent environments
  • talking with parents and peers
  • decision-making skills to resist negative peer pressure
  • the uses of positive peer pressure and how to be a good friend
  • the impact of labels and name-calling
  • how to seek health information and help from adults

 

If you do not want your student to participate in this opportunity, please send an email opting your student out of this activity to John Campbell, Emerson Vice Principal at jcampbell@djusd.net.

 

If you are interested in learning more or downloading A Parent’s Guide: Nightmare on Puberty St. from the Kaiser website, please go to the following URL:  http://etnortherncalifornia.kaiserpermanente.org/nightmare-on-puberty-st-parents-and-educators/

This class is currently reading a Midsummer’s Night Dream by William Shakespeare. The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is having the Midsummer’s Night Dream Festival.

·       Homeroom of the Week:

Each week for the remainder of the school year we will be recognizing a different homeroom and sharing what it is about that group that makes them great. This week’s Homeroom of the Week is Ms. Herrmann’s 7th grade English class.  Ms. Herrmann describes the students in her homeroom as being sweet, hardworking, and funny. What she likes best about teaching this class is that they are fun to work with, funny and patient. This class is currently working on making cultural connections and on debunking stereotypes. The most interesting think they will work on this unit is a Hokies and Heelots simulation where they will learn about different cultures. Thank you to Ms. Herrmann and to her 4th period class for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.
