Welcome to the home of the Bernard Zell Parent Teacher Council! Bookmark this page and come back often - we'll keep you up-to-date on volunteer opportunities, fun events for you and your family and ways you can help our school. We hope you'll take advantage of all the BZ PTC has to offer!

Welcome from 2021-22 PTC President, Merritt DeWitt

I'm grateful to be serving with all of you as a member of the Bernard Zell PTC. As parents, our role at Bernard Zell is such a critical one - we support our outstanding faculty and staff, reach out to new families and welcome them into our community and give our time and resources to make Bernard Zell an exceptional place for our children to learn. Giving back to Bernard Zell is not a selfless act - the time I've spent volunteering has given my family a deeper connection to our community and made our time at the school so meaningful. I encourage you to dive in this year and get involved in a new way, I think you'll be glad you did. 

— Merritt DeWitt, Parent of Maya '23, Abbey '25 and Chase '25
