Friends of Burr is a nonprofit organization formed to support Jonathan Burr Elementary School.  FOB is comprised of current and prospective parents, teachers and administrators and local community and business members.  We are primarily a fundraising organization with a mission of working with the staff and administration to build a strong and highly regarded neighborhood school. 

Like many public schools, Burr’s operating budget is under funded.  This necessitates additional funding to support continued growth and expansion.  Our current focus is on the technological needs, arts, and physical school improvements.

Friends of Burr recognizes the unique aspects of our Burr students and delights in the diversity and individuality of our students and parents.  New ideas bring new ways of fundraising, which develops a more dynamic school, supports our children and staff better and improves everyone’s time at Burr.   Every idea is welcome at every meeting and the FOB board members will always be available to discuss your ideas, comments or concerns.  With your help we can make a difference!
