The John D. Philbrick School provides a safe, nurturing learning environment for 160 students in grades K0/K1 to 5. Our students represent diverse neighborhoods throughout the city including Dorchester, Roxbury, Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Roslindale, and West Roxbury.
Susan Bethoney was an integral part of the Philbrick community for 17 years, serving as a classroom paraprofessional, and working in the before-school and after-school program. We are asking you to consider how important Mrs. Bethoney’s presence was in the life of our school, and donate to this ongoing memorial to Susan. Funds will endow a camp scholarship, and some will also be used for a plaque which will be placed near the garden outside the school. We are planning an event at school on the morning of June 22 to unveil the plaque and the scholarship. All contributions are tax-deductible.

Thank you to our partners at FIS Global for the fantastic donation of school supplies! They dropped off copy paper, pencils, back-packs, markers, crayons and the list goes on. As you know, we had to make significant cuts to our budget last year, so this year’s donation from FIS Global was much needed and extra special!
