Dear Families,

Hi there!  A warm Bandit Welcome to all the new families joining us this year! We are so glad you are here! As a newcomer myself just a few years ago, I remember how overwhelming it was to understand expectations and meet other parents in my situation.  Joining the PTA can be a great way to do just that. A HUGE thank you and welcome back to all the returning families this year! We are so excited to have you back!

We are a very diverse community with many people from all over the world. We have many different languages and nationalities represented in our school population….you might even be one of them.  Together, we make up the fabric of our school and its distinct personality.  Because of this, it is vital that we have a diverse representation on our PTA Board.  Our board is made up of the Executive Board and a general Board of Directors. This board of directors holds the executive board accountable and helps facilitate all the events and happenings that are available for our school community.

Here is what we need from you: Time, Talent, Resources. Some of us:

    Have a talent for organizing people (usually through email or quick messages)

    Have a talent for event planning

    Have a talent for crafts

    Have a talent for taking direction

   Have a talent for writing a check

   Have a little extra time to give, even if it is just an hour all year!

Whatever your particular bent, we each have something to offer. The best way to find out more about how you can contribute is to attend a Board of Directors PTA meeting. Can’t make it to a meeting? Sign up for what you would like to be a part of on Membership Toolkit. Access it by going to  This is where you will find all the information you need to get connected and stay connected to our large Bells Ferry Family!

Please know that we are parents just like you. We are a volunteer board.  We have chosen to give our time. You may choose to do the same or you may choose to donate something else. By working together, it makes it easier for all of us to reach for the stars. We can’t do it as well without YOU!
