Know Someone Interested in Learning More About Wilbur?
Wilbur is hosting school tours for anyone interested in attending our wonderful school.
If you know someone who will have a child in TK or kinder next year, or interested in learning more about Wilbur, please have them call the office (818-345-1090) to RSVP.
Here are the upcoming dates: Nov. 10 and Dec. 8.
Friends of Wilbur (FOW), our parent-run all-volunteer booster club, is the non-profit organization that supports Wilbur. FOW pays for computer, art, science, and music, none of which are currently funded by Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). FOW is 100% run by parent volunteers, and your involvement and support are vital to Wilbur’s continuing success.
Our Amazing Programs
Thanks to the support of our generous Wilbur families, FOW is fortunate to provide amazing programs to our students. With your donations, here are just a few excellent services and community events FOW will fund this year:
|Music Classes with Ms. Kim||Holiday and Talent Shows|
|Art Classes with Ms. Schwartz||Field Trip Buses|
|Mystery Science Online Program||Math and Science Bonanza|
|Planet Bravo Computer Classes||Halloween Trunk or Treat|
How to Get Involved
FOW is strong because of parents like you, and we are always looking for volunteers. You can help in many ways: as a room parent, event volunteer, donor, and active attendee and participant in school programs. Any amount of time, involvement, and support you can give is greatly appreciated and goes far to help FOW and Wilbur.
We are busy planning fun community events and fundraisers for this school year. Here are the best ways to stay connected and make sure you never miss an update:

We are excited about the upcoming school year and celebrating our kids and teachers being back in classrooms! Thank you for your continued support, and welcome back!
The “I HEART WILBUR” pledge drive is FOW’s biggest annual fundraising event and enables us to continue supporting these programs that your children and their teachers love. The goal of the “I HEART WILBUR” pledge drive this year is to raise $175,000. We have increased our goal this year due to rising prices in line items such as payroll, insurance, and materials, which have affected our overall budget. Every dollar counts towards reaching this goal, so if you cannot give the suggested amount, we appreciate gifts of any amount. EVERY BIT HELPS! Donate now!
Where Does the Annual Fund Money Go?
You probably know that the Annual Fund supports our art, music and computer programs, along with the holiday show and field trip buses (two per year for each grade level!). But did you know it also pays for community events like Trunk or Treat and the Math and Science Bonanza, in addition to student achievement awards, teacher appreciation gifts and other important expenses to make our school as great as it is! These expenses are not paid for by LAUSD, so your donation is crucial! Take a look below to see the breakdown.
