Dear Frank D. Parent Community,
Welcome back to Frank D. Parent TK-8 School, where the entire staff looks forward to
working diligently as a cohesive team through engaging instruction and a meaningful,
rigorous curriculum. Lessons and collaborative activities are student-centered and
designed to motivate learners while teaching them the essential skills at their grade
level to prepare scholars to be college and career ready. The vision of Frank D. Parent
School is “TO PREPARE TODAY’S LEARNERS TO BE TOMORROW’S LEADERS.”
We have a strong team of educators and support staff that is passionate and
purposeful about the academic and social development of our scholars. Positive
Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Dual Immersion (Spanish) classes
continue to be successful programs at Parent School. Parent has Innovative programs
such as “I Have A Dream–Los Angeles” (IHADLA) and the newly incorporated
Musicians At Play and School2Home.
Parent scholars are preparing for the demands of the 21st century by becoming
technologically savvy. All students take digital formative and summative assessments
and participate in online intervention and enrichment programs. Teachers and scholars
utilize computer application programs to enhance and support daily instruction.
At Parent, we recognize the need to help support our scholars social and emotional
needs. Parent utilizes PBIS by incorporating our core values, Pride, Attitude, Wise
Choices, and Safety (PAWS) as the scholars learn how to navigate making positive
choices while at school and after school ends. It is important to teach our scholars ways
in which to strive to become successful in and out of the school environment, not just
academically but socially and emotionally as well.
Here at Parent, our strong and involved PTA comprises dedicated parents and staff.
The PTA encourages the entire school community to get involved by volunteering on
campus, supporting fundraisers, and planning school and family events.
By working collaboratively as a school community, we feel that we can truly help
“TO PREPARE TODAY’S LEARNERS TO BECOME TOMORROW’S LEADERS.”
