We welcome your help!  Whether you can offer time, money, or ideas, you can help us make an important contribution to the lives of White Plains Public School students.

​​​​​Friends of White Plains Public Schools is dedicated to supporting our students by

(1) Funding academic and cultural enrichment programs not included in the District's budget, and

(2) Encouraging greater involvement in and support for the schools by parents, the community, and alumni.


As the 2023-24 school year winds down, we are holding two events where we will celebrate the contributions made by a few different people to the White Plains Public Schools. We hope to see many of you there! 

Read about our mission, and meet the White Plains residents on our Board.
About Us

More than 500 bricks, including those purchased through February 2024, are now in place in an updated display outside the North Street entrance to White Plains High School. We invite everyone who has bought a brick at any time - and also those who have not! -  to come by and take a look during the unveiling of special bricks at a brief ceremony honoring longtime White Plains High School administrators Harry Jefferson and Dan Woodard. The event is free to all. Light refreshments will be served.

 Thanks To All Who Joined Us On Thanksgiving Eve!

Grant History


Ballroom Dancing Program at Church Street School

Through special events, dinners, auctions, sale of commemorative bricks and fund-raising appeals, the Friends have raised and donated more than $440,000 to the White Plains Public Schools.

Our Homecoming Gathering was a great start to Thanksgiving Weekend! We hope all of our guests enjoyed it as much as we did. ​

Get Involved

During the 2020-21 school year - a most unusual school year - we were happy to provide grants covering software that allowed band and music teachers across our district to present virtual concerts. We are proud to present some of those concerts here, showcasing both the talent and the resilience of many students within the White Plains Public Schools. ​​
