Update your family directory information by Nov. 14

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is responsible for the Bells Mill online and print directories, which provides contact information for families in the school. Because our directories do not pull from any official MCPS database, the PTSA relies on family participation as the primary source of data entry. We need you, Bells Mill parents, to update your information by November 14th!

Like most schools throughout Montgomery County, BMES PTA uses the Membership Toolkit platform through AtoZ Connect for our membership and directory.
