LAUSD's Parent Involvement was sent to all families on Nov. 9, 2015.
We believe that our students can achieve success through a supportive, nurturing and rigorous academic curriculum.
All students will develop a positive attitude toward an interest in science and math.
First grade student at Plasencia Math and Science Magnet in downtown Los Angeles was inspired by her first grade teachers to make a movie about the plight of the Chimpanzee. Please take the thirteen minutes it takes to watch her incredible movie. You will see how the students have been learning about six specific endangered animals and how they can help save them. The children will be taking a trip on an airplane in May to Sacramento to the capitol building to speak to our representatives about how they can help save these animals too. It is part of a year long study on the structural and behavioral adaptations of these animals and how we fit together in this big world. Children have an amazing ability to see things with clear eyes and a passion that we often lose as we get older. Please take a moment to see the world through the eyes of a six year old.
