Bernard Zell is fundraising with Mabel’s Labels! If you’re not familiar with Mabel’s Labels, they are personalized, durable, waterproof labels. They are great for everything from shoes, clothing tags, water bottles and backpacks. You can customize them with your name and a design, and they are dishwasher, laundry and microwave safe.
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 2022-23 PTC President
Hello Fellow Parents,
I am so excited to welcome you to the 2022-2023 School Year. For those I haven’t met, my name is Ericka Thacker. This is my 13th year at Bernard Zell! I have three current BZ students and one alum (it goes FAST!) and can say with complete confidence that our school is one-of-a-kind.
I’m grateful to be in community with you and look forward to getting to know you this year. There are so many ways to be involved at school and now that it's safe, we'd love to have you on campus! Be on the lookout for a chance to sign up to be a morning Car Line Greeter, a Lunchroom Helper and a Challah Deliverer. PTC committees 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. After nearly three years apart, let's join together again and rebuild stronger!
Please reach out to me any time: 248-202-3067 or email@example.com. 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.
PTC President 2022-23
