About Blake PTSA

MISSION STATEMENT

The Blake PTSA is an organization composed of parents, teachers and students, working together to better the lives of our students. It is our duty to adhere to the mission of the National PTSA and that is: to be a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.

Please contact our PTSA President at President@blakeptsa.org to learn more about how you can participate in the opportunity to support the Bengals!

When do we meet?

Our General Membership Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every other month at 7 p.m. during the school year in the Media Center. The Blake PTSA Board holds its meetings on the second Wednesday of every month during the school year.

What do we do?

  • We fund the school’s rewards program and give scholarships to deserving graduates who are going into education or public service.
  • We fund and coordinate the After Prom, which many think is the best and safest after-prom event in the county. There is an active After Prom committee always looking for volunteers to help this worthy event come to life.
  • In addition, we coordinate other events such as Back to School Night and College Night
  • Whenever possible, we give a gift from the PTSA to the school. Past gifts have included the school’s electronic sign and a supply of calculators for math students who are unable to purchase their own.
  • In addition, we organize parents and other dedicated volunteers to help implement school improvement programs and forge constructive relationships between parents, teachers, administrators and the students. We work tirelessly with the school to provide the necessary supports for our students. We seek to be inclusive of our entire school community.

How can I stay informed of school activities and related matters of interest?

Parents can stay informed about Blake H.S. activities with our Blake PTSA Yahoo Group (Eubiemail).

How can I help the Blake PTSA?

We want to solicit as wide a spectrum of views as possible, on how best to support our students and, therefore, we encourage parents, teachers, other staff and students to join our ranks and support the school, collectively. For information on membership, see the Join Our PTSA Today page.
