How you can help:


The parent council puts on many events throughout the school year, and we are only able to do so because of the parents of Blake School volunteer their time and energy. If you’d like to help out by servicing on a committee, handing out pizza to happy kids, supporting the fun fair, or sorting clothes for our clothing swap, to name just a few opportunities, please contact the committee chair or email our general mailbox at
