Gonzalez Magic  Dear Parker Students and Families;
    Thank you for allowing me to serve you as your Principal.  Over the past several years we have accomplihed many great things.  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 2018-2019 School Year we will continue to celebrate the power of our Parker Houses which have increased our sense of unity at Francis Parker.  Different staff members will take the lead in supporting our Parker Kids in understanding their role in making us a stronger community.  We would be honored to have our parents and family members join us whenever and however they can to support this work.   Our four houses are Heshima (Respect), Kuaminika (Responsibility), Ubuntu (Compassion), and Beneficous (Kindness).  Moving forward we are working to consistently conjur the "magic" out of every learning moment at school.
    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 continue to give our kids our all.
    We look forward to working with you to make EXCELLENCE happen! 
    Respectfully yours,
    John Gonzalez, Jr.
    Principal, Francis Parker
