Emerson Parkside Academy Parents Launch
"Bridge the Gap" Campaign to Save P.E. and Science
Emerson just recently learned of next year's funding cuts, causing the school to lose its science and physical education programs.
The school hopes to raise $100,000 by June 15, which would allow the school to keep the programs for another year.

Two other ways to help:
1. By making business or personal donations to Emerson via the Long Beach Educational Foundation. 100% of the dollars you designate to Emerson go directly to the school.
2. By becoming a business sponsor of the school. The school has permission to post sponsor signage at the busy, highly traveled Willow-P.V. intersection. If your business is interested, Michelle Worden is the contact to reach - firstname.lastname@example.org
