Emerson School Song

(To the tune of “You’re a Grand Old Flag)

We’re a grand old school
We’re a high-ranking school
We’re the best in Seattle. We all say EMERSON
Here the kids are smart and the teachers do their part,
We’re loyal to you every day!
Every heart beats true to our own white and blue,
We’re the best school in every way.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
Emerson is here to stay (repeat 3X)

Emerson School Creed of Excellence

I am proud to be an EMERSON EAGLE!
I receive my homework and turn it in neat, complete and on time.
I speak clearly and in complete sentences.
I turn in quality work on which I proudly put my name.
I treat myself and others with kindness, respect and consideration.
I actively listen and politely ask questions if I don’t understand 
and follow directions the first time.
I problem solve responsibly throughout the day.
I set goals for myself and work toward achieving them.
There are some things no one can take from me, my love to learn, my
self-discipline, my pride and my awesome dignity.
I do my best to excel in every way.
For I am a WINNER OF EXCELLENCE each and every day!
