Friends of the Perry strives to create a tight-knit school community and support the Perry School in providing the best education for every child, every day.  We facilitate the academic and social advancement of our students through innovative experiences, designed to positively promote the learning of the whole child.

  • Provide a school-wide music program

  • Provide enriching field trips for our students

  • Ensure classrooms have literacy support

  • Purchase technology for the classrooms

  • Host an annual Field Day with the gym teacher
