IMPORTANT WONDERLAND DOCUMENTS  (some require action on your part):

Calling All Friends of Wonderland…

Dear Wonderland Families,

The results are in and we have some very exciting news! In 2013, Wonderland Avenue Elementary ranked #4 out of 527 LAUSD elementary schools and ranked in the top 2% in all of California. And there’s more. Thanks to the financial support from you, the families of Wonderland, last year our school raised and spent more than $550,000 to fully fund Wonderland’s music, art, physical education and From The Ground Up garden programs as well as library, teachers aides, classroom technology, and advanced professional training for our incredible teachers. To be clear, we received no money from LAUSD to pay for any of these, all of the money that paid for all of these programs came directly from your contributions.

As we prepare for the new school year, we want to make sure that every one of these programs is once again available for every student and so we are coming to you, the families of Wonderland, for your support. With $60,000 “in the bank” we need to raise an additional $500,000 to fund these essential programs for the new school year.

Your donation of $1000 for every child would cover our entire annual budget. That’s a month of pre-school tuition, never mind the cost of a private elementary school that can top more than $35K.

We understand $1000/year ($100 a month, for ten months) is difficult for some families. We also know that other families, acting as benefactors, will provide two, three, even ten times that amount. The important thing is that every family participates. Together, we make our budget. We will get this done.

Please make your pledge now so we can guarantee these programs for this school year. Simply visit and choose the level that is right for your family. Be a “Friend of Wonderland” so that together we can continue to provide our children the very best in public education.

Want to find out more about Friends of Wonderland, the parent-led volunteer group that raises money for our school? Drop off the kids then join us for coffee at our first meeting on Friday, August 15 at 8:30am in Room 5 next to the main office. Everyone is welcome.

Thank you for all you do for our remarkable community!
