The FAB holds breakfast or dinner meetings once a month. The FAB creates, organizes, and promotes events, informative and community-building activities,and generally encourages families to get involved. The FAB generates enrichment proposals for their respective campuses.

The FAB Chair is the leader of the FAB. The FAB Chair acts as a liaison between families and administration, plans and runs the monthly FAB meetings, and helps organize enrichment opportunities and fundraising initiatives.
What is the FACE Coordinator?
FACE stands for Family and Community Engagement. Our FACE Coordinators work together with the FAB Chair, the FAB, and the CFA to foster partnerships with families and community members.
