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.

MAKE A DONATION NOW!

Communications 411 at Bell

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.  We have a weekly email newsletter that is sent out each Friday to all parents & guardians (the Bulldog Blast), a very active Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/agbellptsa/), our website (https://www.agbellptsa.org), and a 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
