A Court Win For Our Children

In a victory for our children, Gordon Parks Elementary School has been saved, thanks to a Cole County Circuit Court judgment entered Monday, July 29th, renewing Gordon Parks’ charter.

This is welcome news for the Gordon Parks extended family of students, families, alumni, staff, volunteers and supporters. The Court’s judgment means Gordon Parks Elementary School will be able to continue its mission.

We are now enrolling students for kindergarten, first and second grade classes, which will start on August 21st. We will need all of the support we can muster to meet and improve upon our ambitious goals enabled by the favorable court decision. Your support of Gordon Parks is deeply appreciated. On behalf of our students, thank you!
