    Welcome to the Ballard High School PTSA Overview

    The Ballard High 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 Do 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. 

    Fundraising

    We raise money through fundraising events such as our Bash Dinner & Auction and Direct Appeal Campaign. 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 bhs.ptsa.pres@gmail.com to learn more.
