    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 Chant

    Eagles fly higher everyday

    We Soar, in every way

    SAFE, cause we know all the rules

    ON TASK, cause it's time for school

    Act as a TEAM, you know what I mean

    RESILIENT, Cause I am strong, I do my best

    Eagles flying higher than all the rest

    Emerson UNITED everyday

    We Soar, in every way


    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!
