Handel’s Ice Cream Party!!

Handels Fundraiser

It’s an ice cream eatery event! Join us for a scoop… or two… of ice cream at Handel’s in Woodland Hills on Thursday, May 23 — ALL DAY. Grab a cone for a treat at lunch or just to celebrate that it’s Thursday! Make it a double scoop… we don’t judge. 😉

And if you come after school between the hours from 4:30pm and 7:30pm, you may see a familiar face behind the counter. Our very own Wilbur teachers and staff will be behind the counter scooping ice cream cones for customers in the store.

Wilbur will receive 20% back on all purchases generated through our event. Mark your calendars for a sweet treat! 🍦

Ice Cream Sales on Friday After School

I scream, you scream, we all scream … for Ice Cream Fridays!

The Class of 2024 Culmination Committee is selling ice cream after school on Fridays in April! Come to the lawn in front of the school (near the auditorium entrance) after the bells rings.

You can buy a variety of ice cream products. All items are $3 or less! CASH ONLY. First come, first served, until they sell out!

All proceeds will pay for culmination costs for this year’s fifth-grade class. This event is sponsored by Friends of Wilbur to benefit the Class of 2024 culmination.

Don’t miss out!

Generation Genius

Friends of Wilbur is excited to offer a new science and math teaching resource for all grade levels this year! Thanks to the generous support of our Gold Level Sponsor Logix Federal Credit Union and its Tarzana branch location, which has fully underwritten the cost of this program, Wilbur teachers have access to all that Generation Genius has to offer and are incorporating it into their lessons. This program, which was started by a scientist with a Ph.D. in biochemistry and an Emmy-winning former president of Marvel TV & Animation, aims to bring “school science standards to life through fun and educational videos paired with lesson plans, activities, quizzes, reading material and more.” Their videos, which are produced in partnership with the National Science Teaching Association, are designed to meet school standards, with different lessons and activities tailored for each grade level.

About Us

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:

PE classes with three Coaches
Music classes with Ms. Kim
Art classes with Mrs. Schwartz
Generation Genius
Halloween Trunk or Treat
“Wilbur’s Got Talent” Show
Spring Carnival
Holiday Show
Field Trip buses
Valentine’s Day Dance
Movie Night
And more!

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!

Annual Fund

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.
