Friends of the Perry School

Friends of the Perry is a BPS-approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization created to raise funds to support the Perry School.


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 our students through innovative experiences, designed to positively promote the learning of the whole child. 


  • Raise 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

  • 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

Everyone is welcome to join the monthly Friends of the Perry School meetings. All meetings for the 2020-2021 school year will be Zoom meetings.  The schedule has yet to be determined. Contact Friends of the Perry with any questions.
