Welcome to the home of the Bernard Zell Parent Teacher Council!
If you’re a parent at Bernard Zell, you’re already a member of the Parent Teacher Council (PTC). The PTC is a place for teachers and parents to communicate in a welcoming forum and where parents can serve as ambassadors for the school. The council also oversees many important school events and opportunities for fundraising.
The PTC has an executive board of seven elected officers, and a full board that includes all committee chairs. Parents and teachers are encouraged to attend any PTC meeting. A complete listing of the organization's executive board, committee chairs and more information on the PTC can be found in PTC Forms and Resources.
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.

A Letter from 2023-24 PTC President

Dear BZ Parents,
I am so excited to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! For those I haven’t yet met, my name is Allyson Becker. This is my 9th year as a parent at Bernard Zell and I promise you, it really goes by in the blink of an eye!
As President, I look forward to helping you find a space and place for you, wherever you are in your journey as a BZ parent at Bernard Zell. 
We will be hosting other events throughout the year including teacher appreciation pop-ups, Shabbat in the park gatherings and opportunities for your family to serve the greater community with Yad B' Yad. There is really something for everyone! 

This year, we’ve streamlined the signup process to make it as easy as possible! Bookmark this centralized volunteer hub as it will be updated throughout the year.
Please reach out to me any time at ptc@bernardzell.org. I'd love to help you support our school and community with your time and energy.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful school year!
Allyson Becker,
PTC President 2023-24
