Who are the Concerned Parents of Baldwin?

The Concerned Parents of Baldwin comprises parents from Baldwin, Freeport and Roosevelt whose children attend the Baldwin Schools. The organization’s primary focus has been the recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and to work with the District to present an annual assembly in memory of Dr. King and an annual poster contest. At the assembly, Concerned Parents also grants Humanitarian Awards to Baldwin students who exemplify the ideals of Dr. King, by actively participating in school and community outreach and demonstrating an awareness and sensitivity toward others. Link to 2019-2020 Humanitarian Award Form instruction page! (Due December 20, 2019.)

Every year, the Concerned Parents of Baldwin (CPOB) also presents academic scholarships to deserving Seniors. To date, we have given over 50 monetary scholarships.

  History of the Concerned Parents of Baldwin Organization  

In 1980 a group of parents assembled to plan a commemoration of the life and humanitarian work of Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Since 1980, a yearly program is held at Baldwin Senior High School with enthusiastic support from the community and the school district.  Elementary schools participate on alternating years and various Middle and Senior High School groups participate annually. Through skits, dance, poetry and music, students and teachers work together to celebrate Dr. King's legacy and our diverse community.
