What is FAB?
Fairburn Avenue Boosters (FAB) is a volunteer, parent-led booster club with a mission to support the students and teachers of Fairburn Avenue Elementary School through community-building activities and fundraising events. From the Fall Festival to Teacher Appreciation week, FAB is there for Fairburn, ensuring the school has the revenue needed to provide vital programs for students not budgeted for by LAUSD. Please watch our (very) short video for an overview of all we do for Fairburn.
FAB has an all-volunteer Board of Directors that plans and manages the annual fundraising and community events at our school. These efforts, however, are only successful when we have support from our entire parent body. Our school relies heavily on generous donations of money and time from parents. The funds raised by FAB go directly to support the enrichment of classroom instruction, programs and activities, as well as the purchase of supplies and equipment.
Volunteer opportunities will be available at Fairburn this year and will be announced in upcoming communications from FAB and the school. If you are interested in volunteering as a Room Parent, please email the Room Parent Coordinators, Pradnya Parulekar, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you have specific questions about volunteering, please email FAB’s Co-Presidents, Sima Bosnjakovic and Martha Gonzalez, at email@example.com.

Fundraising for Fairburn Avenue Elementary School
It’s a reality that funds from LAUSD do not cover some very basic needs. We are fortunate that our generous parent community steps up to fill the funding gap to provide critical enhancements in support of instruction and learning at Fairburn. The majority of our funding is raised during our Annual Pledge Drive, which is held in the fall.
