About the Friends of the Perry School

The Friends of the Perry School is a BPS approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization created to raise funds to financially support the Perry School. We aim to keep our fundraisers focused on our mission, which is to provide the best education for every child, every day, and to academically and socially advance our students through innovative experiences designed to positively promote the learning of the whole child.

• Funds for teachers to purchase much needed materials and supplies for their classrooms; materials that aren’t covered under the Boston Public Schools existing budget
• School-wide music program
• Enriching field trips for our students
• Literacy support
• Technology in the classroom
• Annual Field Day
