A Message From The Principal

¡Juntos Adelante!  Together, forward!  As we face these challenging times, let us recognize our strengths as a community.  Our commitment as a school continues to be the social-emotional and physical wellness of our children as we continue to pursue academic achievement virtually.  Our students together with our families are at the core our work.  As part of the broader organization, The Para Los Ninos Charter Elementary School has grown ever stronger and continues to learn to respond to the challenges caused by Covid-19 pandemic. And, we also strive to address issues of bias, racism that exist in our school community and impacts Black lives.

Principal, Norma Silva

Why PLN?

Integrated Support

PLN believes that children learn best when they are taught holistically, within the context of their lives – we engage parents to ensure what happens in the classroom continues at home. With counselors, social workers, and family support specialists on staff across our schools meeting regularly, our students and families can be set for success.

Before & Afterschool Support

Our Afterschool opens before school starts to ensure families can safely get to work and kids have time for breakfast. After the school day, Afterschool provides academic support, nutritious snacks, and groups – offering opportunities for students find passions and build soft-skills like relationship building and confidence.
