Welcome Back to School!
On behalf of your Bell Elementary School PTSA - welcome to your 2016-2017 Bell Elementary school year! We hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing summer break, and we’re looking forward to a wonderful year full of many exciting events for the students.
The Bell PTSA is made up of parents, teachers, grandparents, guardians, school staff and others in the community that want to improve and enrich the educational lives of our children.
On this website, you can find information about our activities, important forms, PTSA Board member names and the ability to sign up for volunteer activities.
Come to Curriculum Night!
Get ready for Bell's Curriculum Night, this Thursday, September 22nd! This is an exciting opportunity for parents to learn from their child’s teacher on the upcoming school year and the best way to help their child be successful. In addition, there will be an opportunity to sign-up for conference dates and times. Please note, this is an adult only evening with no childcare. Please come early to avoid parking issues.
Volunteer for Walk to School Week
Walk To School Week is only a few weeks away! The week of 10/3-10/7, all Bell students are encouraged to participate by walking to school each day. We are looking for at least 4-6 volunteers per day to help set up and staff the tables from 8:15-9AM. You will hand out the daily prize for walking and help kids enter the daily raffle. Additionally, we will need a volunteer to wear the Alex the Bulldog mascot costume on Friday (you will greet kids, give high fives, and mostly have fun being silly!). It's a fun and easy way to help out! Click here to sign up! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0d4aafaa2fa5fd0-walk
Collect Box Tops!
Did you collect Box Tops For Education over the summer? We earn 10 cents for our kids with each Box Top that we turn in - this year we earned $1000! Send in any Box Tops with your children, and join us for our first Box Tops Clippings and Coffee on Wednesday, September 21st at 9 am in the Bell Commons or Art Room. We will have conversation and clip and sort the Box Tops and Labels that have been received this school year. If you are new to our school, this is a great way to meet others. If you have any questions, please contact Diane Devlyne-Thompson at email@example.com.
Many of us work for companies (Microsoft, Boeing, Google among many) that will pay an organization such as Bell PTSA when the employee volunteers. If you have volunteered this school year at Bell please consider entering your time volunteered and direct it to AG Bell PTSA. If you have any questions, please contact Diane Devlyne-Thompson.
THANK YOU to ALL our PTSA Members who helped us on achieving the Gold level with Washington State PTA! With your participation we have grown our PTSA by 10% over last year. Thank you for all your hard work and enthusiasm to give a louder voice to children in Washington State.
