We are excited to announce that during the month of January the Emerson School has established it’s very first student government!  With hard work and much effort put towards campaigning for many weeks, 9 students gave it their best in running for President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.  The students that were nominated for President were: Chantal Gomez of class 603, Jennifer Sanchez of 604, and Kaisha Dominguez of class 605.  Latrice Murreld of class 602 and Nashawn Torres of class 601 were nominated for Vice President.  The students that were nominated for Secretary included Cydney Trim of class 603 and Erin Kerr of 602.  And the students that were nominated for Treasurer included Ramel Ervin and Robin Geetram both of class 602.  On January 13, 2014, a special assembly was held in which all candidates had to present their speeches to the school.  Finally, students completed a ballot and voted for whom they felt was the best for the job.

KUDOS to all the students that ran.  You all did amazing and we are so proud of each and every one of you!!!

The Emerson School’s  student council will take on the responsibility of representing the whole student body, and will voice the needs, wants and concerns of the student body to the administration (i.e. principals and teachers). They are also responsible for encouraging school spirit through initiating school spirit events, and they will help raise funds for school-wide activities, including social events, community projects, helping people in need, and school reform.

The Emerson School’s student council consists of:

Chantal Gomez – President

Latrice Murreld – Vice President

Cydney Trim – Secretary

Ramel Ervin – Treasurer


Sylvestor Aswen – 601

Faith Gill – 602

Samir Perez – 603

Zariya Castillo – 604

Abraham Phillips – 605
