Mr. John Gonzalez. Jr.

    Dear Parker Families,
    I am proud to have been a part of the many great things happening at Francis Parker School 23.  As we move forward in our growth, I ask that each one of you join us on this path of discovery and learning.  In the 2017-2018 School Year we will introduce our Parker Houses to increase the sense of family at Francis Parker.  Different staff members will take the lead in supporting our Parker Kids in understanding their role in making us a united family.  We want you, the parents and family members, to join us whenever and however you can in supporting this work.   The four houses are Heshima (Respect), Kuaminika (Responsibility), Ubuntu (Compassion), and Beneficous (Kindness).
    Our focus will continue to be serving our students and providing them a first-class educational experience.  From tailored small group instruction to building authentic relationships we will give our kids our all.
    We look forward to working with you to make excellence happen! 
    Respectfully yours,
    John Gonzalez, Jr.
    Principal, Francis Parker
