Get Involved

We need you! Contribute in large and small ways — in anyway you can. Anything and everything helps to better our school, community and children.

Join the PTA

Membership ensures that your voice is heard on issues affecting your child and supports our efforts to provide valuable programs and activities for our school throughout the year.

Support the PTA

Check out our goal for this year and how you can support the PTA throughout the year. Plus you can make your regular everyday shopping count towards funds for our school.

Stay Informed

Be sure to stay informed of all that the PTA is doing and how you can take part.

Bring your kids and have fun

Throughout the year, the PTA hosts Community Events where families can get together and have a blast. We’ll see you there whether you can serve as a volunteer or just come to play.


Parent volunteers are the backbone of the PTA. We need your help whether you can give a lot of time or only a little; at school during the day or a project at home; share a special talent or just have fun and work with some great people. Consider getting involved at Bells Mill by joining one of our Committees or volunteering at Recess/Lunch, or in the Media Center.

From MCPS on volunteer training (for full information, visit or the FAQ):

MCPS values the volunteers who work in our schools to enrich our students’ experiences. As a community, we all are mindful of our shared responsibility to create safe, nurturing environments for our students. The district has developed training for all volunteers to learn about recognizing and reporting child abuse and neglect. This online training will take about 30 minutes to complete. In addition to the online training, volunteers also have the option to participate in an in-person training session. The sessions will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. at locations across the county.
