We hold our meetings the second Thursday of each month and provide coffee as well as breakfast treats. Younger siblings are always welcome.

Our Mission Statement
The Blakely PTO exists to 1) strengthen and enrich the classroom experience of Blakely School students, 2) foster a sense of community and cooperation among our parent, teacher, staff and student community by providing events and activities that bring people together in a social environment, 3) facilitate communication among our community members and 4) raise funds to support our mission.

Being a part of the PTO is a great way to meet our teachers, staff and fellow Blakely parents.  You’ll find that there are many ways that you can participate whether it is small or large, individual or with a group, we welcome every level of involvement!
