On behalf of the students and staff, I welcome you to Emerson Elementary. Our dedicated teachers and support staff are committed to providing a safe and positive learning environment that promotes and encourages the growth of all children. There are eighteen Kindergarten through fifth grade homerooms at Emerson. We have a full time school counselor, librarian, and health office personnel. Every student at Emerson goes to PE, Art, and Music classes every week.  We have reading support personnel to assist our students with reading/literacy skills. Three different special education programs are available for students with unique learning needs. An English as a Second Language teacher serves students learning English.

Staff members model the practice of continuous growth through professional development opportunities to meet building goals. Through the integration of technology, use of engaging instructional strategies, and increased higher order questioning, students will meet and exceed expectations.

The staff and students of Emerson are proud to be a part of the Indianola Community School District. I invite you to explore our website and read about our school. Please feel free to visit our school or contact us for more information. We would love to share with you our beautiful building, wonderful staff and students along with the great things happening at Emerson Elementary.
