We are very lucky to have YMCA's P.L.A.Y. (Physical Learning Activities for Youth) program with us at Primary Academy.  Every Monday morning, all K-2nd students will receive guided physical education instruction for one hour.  Parents, please make sure your child wears comfortable clothes and tennis shoes on Mondays.  If there any health concerns, please notify your child's teacher.  The PLAY program is funded with Student Body money.


LAUSD's "Breakfast in the Classroom" program has improved attendance, increased academic performance, and increased student focus.  Please help us support your children by making sure your child gets to school on time.  Please take note of these guidelines:

  2. Breakfast will be served IN THE CLASSROOM from 7:50 - 8:10am every day, for every student.

During the 2018 KINDNESS WEEK, students, parents, and staff showcased different ways to express kindness. We had a themed dress day all week, like "Crazy for Kindness" (Crazy Hair Day) and "Powered by Kindness" (Superhero Day).  Parents helped students make Kindness Cards that gave compliments to others. Kindness Hands were given out to students that showed kindness.  Students even took inventory on how many kind acts they could do in a week!


We were also showcased on LAUSD’s daily newsletter!


A KINDNESS MATTERS video was also made featuring our wonderfully kind students. Click here for the video! 


Enrollment for the 2018-19 school year in Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is now OPEN! Please come to our main office between the hours of 7:30 am - 4:00 pm for enrollment packets.

Digital Citizenship

Common Sense Media is a great resource for parents and teachers!  There are reviews of books, movies, games, apps, and tips for parents that let you know what is age-appropriate for your child.  There is a summer reading list on the website too!


California State Schools Superintendent Tom Torlakson awarded Primary Academy for Success with the Gold Ribbon Award for Excellence! Out of 6,000 eligible California elementary schools, 44 LAUSD schools were bestowed the Gold Ribbon.  Primary Academy is very proud of all the students, teachers, staff, and parents who helped us achieve this accomplishment.  To read more, click this link here.



Northwest STEAMFEST!

On March 4th at Cleveland High School, Primary Academy was one of 100 schools showcasing all the wonderful things happening all over the NorthWest district! Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math education was displayed from elementary, middle, and high schools.  Former and current PASS students were there enjoying the various crafts, activities, entertainment, and food that SteamFest offered.  Primary Academy submitted a video of our wonderful classes. Check back soon to view the video here!

School Wide Positive Behavior Support

Please take time to read through our School Wide Positive Behavior Support plan.  A copy was sent home and will be sent home again at the start of every school year.  We adhere to the 6 Pillars of Character in the classroom and throughout the campus, and acknowledge students who exemplify those pillars at our monthly assemblies.  

Parents, please encourage your children to follow the pillars of character and be model students.  Being positive with your children will help them be successful throughout their lives!
