Join PTA!

Thank you to the 184 families and 23 staff that have joined the PTA this year!

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. However, membership dues account for less than 15% of our annual budget. We ask our families to consider making a donation to help us fill the gap! Consider a donation of $100 to the PTA, in addition to your membership, to help fund important enrichment opportunities for Bells Mill.Read Full Post
