Parent Recognition

On September 28, 2016, the Office of Assembly member Patty Lopez honored school leaders, parent engagement advocates, and parent volunteers who go above and beyond the call in supporting their school and the community. The included an awards ceremony and reception with refreshments for families that attend schools in the 39th Assembly District, which are most LAUSD schools in the Local District Northeast region.  Sendak Elementary was represented by Parent Volunteers and Representatives: Amparo Alvarado, Ana Diaz, Maria Estrada, Erika Gomez, Claudia Lozano, Blanca Mendez, Maleta Welch, and Carmen Zombrano.  This community ceremony commemorates a California State Assembly proclamation put forth by Assemblymember Patty Lopez declaring the month of September as Parent and Community Engagement Month in the State of California.

ESL Classes

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. For the first semester, classes will start be every Tuesday and Thursday, from 8:30-12:30. These noncredit community college classes taught by 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. 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.
