As always, we welcome your thoughts, ideas, and questions! Please email  We’d love to hear from you!

BHS PTA Membership

Membership is open and ongoing and we’d LOVE for you to join us! A single membership is just $13 for the entire year. Membership forms are always available in the lobby and you can join by simply submitting your completed membership form along with payment (cash or check) to the school office at your convenience. Moreover, your BHS PTA membership is just that – a membership. It doesn’t commit or obligate you to anything! If and when you volunteer is entirely up to you. Part of every membership fee goes into our general operating fund and helps us do more for our awesome school. Membership is a simple and easy way of supporting us!

And there are some great member benefits! These include up to 30% off Great Wolf Lodge room rates, ticket savings and reduced fees at KeyArena/McCaw Hall, Xfinity Arena, and the Tacoma Dome. Use any one of these this year and your PTA memberships will pay for itself!

Support the BHS PTA

Be sure to check out the simple and easy ways you can support the BHS PTA simply by doing your weekly grocery or holiday shopping and recycling your waste!  More details are available on our Fundraising page. All the money we raise through these passive fundraising programs is invested in art and theater programs, field trips, and treasured PTA sponsored traditions including the Halloween Carnival, the Kids’ Gift Bazaar, and Field Day. The BHS PTA is hugely grateful for your participation!

Who Painted the Beautiful Map?

Someone worked for days and days this summer, in the hot sun, to paint this beautiful map at the school playground. Was it you? Do you know who dedicated so many hours sprucing up this bright, educational map on our school grounds?
