Fundraising Overview

We love our school. We have the best teachers and staff, the finest quality of education available in a loving, safe environment. But to maintain this enriched environment costs more money than what the district can support.

The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is JBBP’s version of a PTA. Every member of Clarendon JBBP is a member of PAC, and the Executive Council is the group of parents elected to help support the desires of the community at large—bringing excellent additional academically and socially enrichment opportunities to our children.

Our fundraising goal is based on the cost of our current programming. PAC spends between $675 and $700 per child per year ensuring that each student benefits from enrichment programs that go beyond what other SFUSD schools can offer their students. Your donations directly fund Japanese Culture & Curriculum, Art, Taiko, PE, Computer Sciences, and smaller class sizes in the upper grades. Without your generous donations, these programs are at risk. There are several ways you can show your support…
