Blake Parent Association

Welcome to the Blake Parent Association web pages!

I invite you, Blake parents and guardians, to dive into the activities of the Blake Parent Association in order to make the 2013-14 school year as rewarding as possible. Besides volunteer needs, this section of our website contains organizational information, meeting schedules, job descriptions and Parent Association bylaws. Also, I highly recommend making it a habit to visit BlakeNet regularly with its division-specific reminders and links, as well as a detailed Parent Association section.

Take a few minutes to browse through this site and choose from a wide array of volunteer opportunities at Blake. We strive to offer a variety of options so that there is something appealing and interesting for everyone. Please check back frequently as these pages are updated regularly based on the needs of our students and the School.

Also, be sure mark your calendars for our all-school fundraiser, the Blake Classic, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 1, 2014. Please join me for this very important (and very enjoyable) evening.  Proceeds from the Classic are used to enhance our students’ Blake experiences in their classrooms, on the fields and in the studios by benefiting Blake’s Arts, Athletic and Academic programs.

I hope to see you soon.

Best regards,
Joy Solomon
President, The Blake School Parent Association
2013-2014

Statement of Membership and Purpose

All Blake parents are members of The Blake School Parent Association. The purpose of the Association is to advance, through parent involvement, the stated mission and core values of The Blake School. Our goals are to promote a sense of community among the parents of our school, to provide a strong communication link between the parent body and the school (faculty, administration and trustees), to provide the school with support in the classroom and with assistance in administrative tasks and school activities; and to raise funds to enhance the Blake School experience for all of our students.

Structure

The Parent Association is organized by a Steering Committee of elected officers and an Executive Committee which is comprised of those elected officers and, in addition, a number of appointed all-school committee chairs. Four School Committees organize the activities and programs on the four campuses of the school: Upper School, Middle School, Lower School Blake Campus and Lower School Highcroft Campus.
