    Who We Are

    The Ballard High School PTSA promotes and supports the social, emotional, and academic well-being of all students. The work we do raises funds to run programs that provide academic opportunities, teacher and staff support, and backing for student activities.

    What We Do

    We provide financial and volunteer support for the students, parents, and staff of Ballard High School. We offer educational opportunities to parents several times per year, with education nights ranging from Suicide Awareness to raising and supporting healthy students. Check out some of the ways your BHS PTSA supports your school.

    Become A Member Of The BHS PTSA 

    Anyone who supports Ballard High students, staff, and families is welcome to join the Ballard High PTSA and volunteer to support our endeavors. This includes everyone our name implies (Parents, Teachers, and Students), as well as alumni, grandparents, extended family members, community members, and more!

    Watch for paperwork online or in the first day packets in September with how to join the Ballard HS PTSA. 

    BHS PTSA Fundraising

    We raise money through fundraising events such as our annual Direct Appeal Campaign and BASH Dinner and Auction held in the spring. Simply becoming a member supports every student in the school. If you donated to the BHS PTSA, your donation is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. Want to help us fundraise? Contact us at to learn more.
