Technology – Our most important fundraiser is the Annual Giving which focuses on funding of new technology in our classrooms. We have previously funded the purchase of iMacs, MacBook Pros and an HD videocamera for use by our students and their teachers. Our goal is to equip each classroom with four LAUSD Bundle Apple IMac’s as well as an ELMO, Projector, Laptop and SmartBoard.
Teacher Assistance – Friends of Braddock has provided funding for purchase of teacher requested supplies and equipment not covered by LAUSD. We have also sponsored Magnet teachers to attend annual educational seminars and conferences. Our magnet teaching assistant is also not covered by LAUSD. FOB raises the funds to pay the assistant each year.
Yearbook – Friends of Braddock produces an annual yearbook for Magnet families.
Field Trips – Friends of Braddock helps support additional field trips requested by the teachers each year.
Friends of Braddock Drive Gifted Magnet (FOB) is the non-profit, parent-led organization whose mission is to support the academic and enrichment needs of students at Braddock Gifted Magnet Elementary School.
Active parents formed FOB in 2010 to help fund classroom supplies, academic programs to support gifted learning, technology needs, and a dedicated Gifted Magnet Teaching Assistant (TA).
The FOB Board consists of active parent volunteers and every parent of Braddock Gifted Magnet is part of the FOB community. Every dollar raised is used to fund ongoing programs or to institute new ones. FOB encourages parents to get involved on campus. There are many ways you can contribute and enrich the educational experiences of the students.
Thank you for your interest and support of Braddock Gifted Magnet!
