2. First Friends of Braddock (FOB) meeting this week, Friday Sept. 8 from 8-9 am at the Parent Center at school.
At our first meeting of the school year we review this year’s budget including field trips, teachers’ needs, and other activities. We decide on fundraisers and sign up to help out with these and other events. We also talk about any school or curriculum-related questions that parents bring to the meeting, and get to know each other better. It’s a great chance to meet parents and get the answers you need, so come on out! Email us at or call Shelley at 310.946.8093 if you have any questions.

***FOB Meetings will be the 2nd Friday of every month from 8-9 am in the Parent Center unless otherwise notified.***

3. Annual Giving Starts Soon!
This is the most important fundraiser of the whole year for our school. We ask for donation of $1,000 per family or whatever your budget allows. We know you want the things that help our students to thrive – field trips, classroom technology, a teacher’s aide to free up our teachers to do all the exciting extras that they do, and books books books! Plus so much more.

You’ll receive a flier in your child’s backpack and emails with links for giving online, in the next week. You can also drop off your donation OR pay instantly by credit card at the FOB info table on Back to School night. Thank you!
