March 2, 2021—Emery Elementary School was one of 339 campuses nominated for the 2020-2021 Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School award from the Flippen Group.
This marks the fourth time that Emery Elementary School has been nominated for the distinguished award, after being named a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School three consecutive years from 2016-2019. For more than three decades, Capturing Kids’ Hearts has worked with thousands of campuses across the country to help cultivate safe and student-connected school cultures. These efforts are aimed at impacting the entirety of the school community and at helping campuses go above and beyond for their students.
Emery Elementary School was chosen as a Capturing Kids’ Hearts Showcase School each year from 2016-2019.
“We are excited to be nominated for the 2020-2021 Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School award,” said Michelle Merricks, Emery principal. “Everyone at Emery works hard to build meaningful relationships with students, team members, families, and our caring community each day. This year has brought our Emery Eagle family together more than ever because we are keeping each other safe, encouraging one another, and supporting each other through these constantly changing and often challenging times. The tools and methods we have learned through CKH have made us more capable and effective as we guide our students to learn and grow despite the difficult situation our society is experiencing.”
Flippen Group representatives will visit nominated campuses to assess, observe, and collect information from those involved in the school community, before making their final decisions on the award winners.
