Parent Association

All Blake parents are members of The Blake School Parent Association. The association works to promote a sense of community among families, to provide communication between the parent body and school (faculty, administration and trustees), to support classroom and school activities, and to raise funds to enhance the Blake experience for all students. The Parent Association brings families together to support school programs and events.

Volunteering is one of the best ways to connect with parents, guardians, students, teachers and administrators. Whether you are a family new to Blake or have been at the school for years, participating in Parent Association activities is a fun and rewarding way to get involved. A variety of day, night and weekend opportunities are available to fit your schedule. If you are interested in volunteering, or have questions about volunteering, learn more here or contact
