The New School Year Has Begun!
Thanks to everyone who helped us ring in the new school year with a great event! On Thursday, September 19th, we hosted a Back To School Night Out, at Wolf & Warrior - one of the great new venues in White Plains. It was a great time, and helped us start the new school year with some great momentum! We're in the process of planning some more fantastic events over the next few months, and we hope to see many of you there!
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.
Through special events, dinners, auctions, sale of commemorative bricks and fund-raising appeals, the Friends have raised and donated more than $360,000 to the White Plains Public Schools.
It Was a Great School Year,
Thanks To All Who Contributed!
We are proud to say that we awarded more than $28,000 in grants during the 2018-19 school year - our highest total ever! These are some of the grants we awarded:
We hope you will help us as we work to continue our success!
