PTSA Information

There is a tendency to think once we get to high school, the PTSA is no longer relevant.  We are ready to be done buying wrapping paper and being Room Parents.  But the truth is, our high school students, teachers and community need us more than ever.  The stakes are much higher so we are not done yet.  The Blake PTSA is the ONLY organization that helps all students and the stronger our PTSA, the more powerful our collective voice. 

Please take a moment to join the PTSA.  The cost is just $35 per family and your contribution will help support critical programs like: 
  • High School 101 (for incoming freshmen)
  • Sources of Strength (suicide prevention for all students)
  • Student Recognition
  • PTSA Scholarships
  • Staff Appreciation
  • AfterProm
  • NAACP Parent Council
