Welcome to

Maurice Sendak Elementary

A Pre-Kinder to 5th Grade school, Sendak Elementary is committed to the education of the whole child so that each may develop his/her maximum potential academically and to be a productive citizen within our diverse global society.


To ensure that all our students succeed, we ask four things from our parents: 1) Bring your children to school every day and on time.  2) Have conversations with your children about what they have learned in school on a daily basis.  3) Check their homework every day.  4) Read with them for at least 15 minutes a day. We look forward to working with all our parents in providing a quality education that meets the needs of all our students.

ESL Classes at Sendak

Sendak Elementary, in partnership with Los Angeles Mission College, is offering English as a Second Language (ESL) classes for our Sendak parents, families, and community members. Classes will start on February 6 and continue through June 9, every Tuesday and Thursday. These noncredit community college classes taught by Ms. Victoria Sanchez, an instructor from LAMC, are offered at no-cost to the students and the school. 


Emphasis, in the ESL classes, is placed on beginning grammar and vocabulary, listening, speaking and reading, and development of writing through guided composition. Students will have a workbook and textbook to complete classroom and homework assignments. Students will be practicing with their peers to build their English language skills.


There are currently about 30 students enrolled. Applications will be accepted, as long as there is space, through the month of February. If we continue to have an abundance of interest for the ESL classes, there is the possibility of more classes being offered during the Fall. For applications or questions, please contact our Parent Community Representatives.

Student Attendance Counts!

School attendance is important to student achievement. Students who develop patterns of good attendance are more likely to be successful academically and socially. When students attend school, they get better grades, score better on standardized tests and are more likely to go to college. Please bring your child to school on time. After the third consecutive absence day, please provide a medical note.

Our goal is 100% attendance.


The LAUSD and Sendak Elementary's Parent Involvement Policy was sent home the week of November 28, 2016.
