We believe we can positively impact Emerson by organizing school staff, families, and prospective families to work together to help meet the diverse needs of our school community.

Another group? Why? There are already opportunities for parents to be involved  at Emerson.
  • Parent Teacher Student Association
  • School Site Council, School-Based Management, English Learners Advisory Council, Compensatory Education Advisory Committee
  • Emerson Arts and Education Foundation
Emerson Advocates is different. Our goal is two-fold:
  • Provide information - This group will provide information about LAUSD decisions that affect and will impact Emerson. Our first meeting focused on the Public School Choice motion that was later approved by the LAUSD school board on August 25.
  • Provide opportunities for action - This group will allow stakeholders to be accurately informed, express concerns, and organize to continue to strengthen the Emerson community.
If you have questions or wish to be an Advocate, please email Michele Levin at mlevin@lausd.net or Noriko Nakada at nnakada@lausd.net

Don't be part of the problem.  Be part of the solution. 

If you live near Westwood Charter, please read the street signs that are posted and make certain not to park in restricted areas during drop off and pick up times.  Parents coming to school also need to remember that there is NO PARKING in the drop off zones where cars need to be able to drive in and out quickly.  If you need to take more time to get your child ready for school, or if you need to run into the school for a moment,  find a parking space outside of the drop zones that are on Selby and LaGrange.  Cars that are parked or waiting in these zones cause traffic to back up into the intersections.  PARENTS  and those dropping off children at school should never allow their children to leave their vehicle while waiting in an intersection.  This is an unsafe practice that endangers the safety of your child and others.   Be safe.
