School Supply List

2019-2020 School Supply List.   You can find our brightly colored pink list at: AG Bell School Supply List or go to LWSD at LWSD All School Link The first page contains information for grades K-2 and their specialists and the second page includes grades 3-5 and their specialists.

As a reminder to new school parents, many times Fred Meyer and Target will have the shopping lists in the school section for each school in that area (if you forget to bring it with you). 

If you are shopping for supplies on Amazon, please use our Amazon link where a portion of the profits are donated directly to our PTSA. https://www.amazon.com/?tag=abp00-20

Egg Drop Results

Such a cool experience! Every child did an amazing job on Monday morning taking the supplies they were given, learning about physics and trying to create a contraption that would save their beloved egg from a drop from the top of the ladder. Whether the egg survived or not I think everyone most enjoyed the drop from the fire ladder and the thump from some of those boxes landing hard when a parachute didn't quite do the job they thought it would. 

We did have a few good eggs come out unscathed from the drop though! In no particular order, below is a list of those eggs that were scrambled but survived!

June 17th

  • Egg Drop!: One of the students favorite end of year activities is coming up on June 17th- Egg Drop! Egg Drop is where we partner with the Kirkland Fire Department for an afternoon of dropping eggs from the top of the ladder truck. The students will make contraptions in their class to contain eggs in hopes the egg doesn’t break when dropped from the ladder. Event goes from 2 pm - 3:30 pm. 

 


Bulldog Dine Out

Thank you for joining our Bulldog Dine Outs this year! We look forward to more next school year!

 


2018-2019 Major Fundraiser

This year we have changed our major fall fundraiser to a Direct Donation campaign.  Rather than incurring costs to raise money for the events and programs our students rely on, we are asking for Direct Donations. With the Direct Donation campaign, you can be assured that 100% of your donation will go directly to the students at Bell.

For Direct Donations, we are asking that families contribute what they can. If we can reach our goal of $50,000, we will not have a major spring fundraiser. Every amount matters, please donate what you can.  We are looking for 100% participation.

If you would like more information on where your dollars go for this fundraiser or a phone script to help your child take the lead in asking for support just click here

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.


Support Our Students!

Do you want to support our students while going about your every day life? There are so many opportunities while shopping, errands, and eating you can support the PTSA and your children. And you don't need to have a child at the school to take advantage of these - we love to have community support as well. 

Here are some of the examples to help support our school without having to make additional time in your day. 

  • Join the PTSA: Just being a member of the PTSA not only supports us, but gives some pretty cool membership perks as well!
  • Monthly Dine Out: This is a great way to support our school and not have any dishes to do. At the beginning of each month we feature a different establishment that will donate a portion of the proceeds to AG Bell just by eating there. Click here to see this month's dine out.
  • Fred Meyer Rewards: Do you shop at Fred Meyer? Do you have a Fred Meyer Rewards card to take advantage of their discounts? If so, hook up your Rewards card to AG Bell and a portion of your purchases will be donated. Five minutes online up front and you never have to think of it again! Click here for information on how to link up your card.  
  • Amazon: Does it feel like there is always a birthday, holiday or just something you need from Amazon? Next time you shop start by going to https://www.amazon.com/?tag=abp00-20 as well as setting up your AmazonSmile

New to the school and wondering how to get information about what events and programs are coming up?  This information is for you! 

Bell PTSA knows you are a busy parent, so we attempt to make our communications efforts as diverse as possible to cover all of the bases. 

  • A weekly email newsletter that is sent out each Friday to all parents & guardians (the Bulldog Blast)
  • A very active Facebook page (www.facebook.com/agbellptsa)
  • Our website (www.agbellptsa.org)
  • Monthly paper calendar that will be sent home in your child's folder (Kidmail). 
Occasionally an all-school email will be sent out from the school office with more information about events or programs. Please like us on Facebook for the most up-to-date information.  We love to hear from you! 
 
If you have a question or concern, we are happy to help.  Reach out to us at feedback@agbellptsa.org.

Online Directory

This year the Bell PTSA is providing a free online directory to help families find each other and connect.  You will have the ability to decide what, if any of your information is visible, and update or correct it at any time.  The directory will be available on the PTSA website, and you will update and publish your information using your website account.  If you do not add your information, your student will NOT be listed in the directory.  There is no paper directory offered this year.

Directory Setup Instructions


Collect Box Tops to support Bell!

Do you collect Box Tops For Education? We earn 10 cents for our kids with each Box Top that we turn in - last year we earned $1000! Send in any Box Tops with your children, and join us for the next Box Tops Clippings and Coffee in the Bell Commons or Art Room (check the weekly Bulldog Blast for the next date and time). 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 Box Tops Chair Halee Proctor at boxtops@agbellptsa.org


Volunteer Time Match! 

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 fundraising@agbellptsa.org
