Thank you to the 211 families and 28 teachers who have joined PTA so far this year! We would like to give a big SHOUT OUT to the entire FIRST GRADE TEAM because all of the first grade teachers joined PTA this year! Remember that PTA membership is annual. Please join or renew today!
Through the PTA, families and teachers work together to enrich the school experience. Each year we sponsor more than 50 programs, including the Teacher Classroom Fund, Academic Enrichment, Science Fair, STEM Night, Assemblies, Staff Appreciation, International Festival, Artist in Residence, community events, and so much more.
Membership dues account for less than 15% of our annual budget and we ask families to consider making a donation to help us fill the gap. To limit the need for additional fundraisers during the year, we ask that families who are able donate $100 to the PTA when they join. However, please select an amount that works best for your family and remember there are lots of ways to support the PTA — either financially or by donating your time or expertise.
Step #1: Update your family and student contact information in our A to Z directory
Returning families: You must verify your contact and profile information. Please add any new Bells Mill students and update your privacy settings for the online and print directory.
New families: Please create your A to Z directory account which we use to stay connected as a school community. You will add each guardian and student and set your privacy settings for the online and print directory.

Step #2: Join the Bells Mill PTA!
A membership to the PTA costs $25 per family. We invite you to join the PTA For Your Child because increasing our membership, even by one family, helps make a difference.
Consider a donation of $100 to the PTA, in addition to your membership, to help fund important enrichment opportunities for Bells Mill. However, please do what is best for your family, as any amount you give will support the potential of our students.
ACT FAST! Join the PTA by November 1st to receive a Bells Mill car magnet sent to members only! Magnets will be sent home with your student this fall.
Extra Credit: Volunteer!
There are volunteer opportunities for every skill and time commitment with the Bells Mill PTA. You can see a list of volunteer committees here and complete a volunteer interest form if you would like to learn more about volunteering.
We have a full and fun PTA calendar ahead this year! The PTA urgently needs volunteers to support a few key back-to-school activities and tasks including sending weekly Bear Post newsletters, newcomer’s welcome committee, and more!
Questions about membership, have interest in one of these volunteer positions or having trouble making a donation? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to the 113 families who have joined PTA so far. Car magnets for PTA members will be distributed soon!
