As your re-elected PTA President, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of you to the 2020-2021 school year at Bells Ferry Elementary. Over the past year, the PTA team has successfully enriched the feeling of community through social outreach and family activity. The purpose of the PTA is to support the faculty, staff, parents and especially our students of Bells Ferry. We invite you to become a PTA member so you can stay updated on everything happening in this unprecedented year.
The success of the PTA depends on teamwork! Joining me again this year on the PTA board is Dana Stassen - First Vice President, Laura Messina - Second Vice President, Stacey Hills - Secretary and Kelly Snead - Treasurer. In addition to our PTA board, we have several committee chairs who help with school events which are all currently postponed until further notice. We hope to bring you socially distanced spirit nights and fundraisers and eventually movie night, holiday shop, bingo for books, spring festival, art night, celebration of nations night, teacher appreciation, a 5th grade party and more. The PTA team has already been hard at work this summer reorganizing and planning for this school year.
We would love for you to show your support by participating in our membership drive. Together with the Foundation, our goal is to raise money to provide immediate needs for our teachers and students during the start of our school year through digital learning. To facilitate this, please go to our website: www.bellsferrypta.org and become a member. One parent family is $8 and a two parent family is $15. You may also browse our spirit wear options to show Bandit pride!
Social media has become a huge part of our cultures form of communication. We would appreciate as many parents and teachers to “like” our Bells Ferry Elementary PTA Facebook page. We will use this platform to provide helpful information. In addition, if you would like to post, please use the hashtag #banditstrong this year. You may also send us a message regarding our PTA efforts or ideas for future PTA initiatives.
We in the PTA believe it is of utmost importance we do everything we can to benefit the educational and the temporary social distance experiences for our children as they truly are the future. It will take all of us working together to make this happen. Myself, along with the PTA board, look forward to working with you this year!
Thank you so much for considering being a part of the 2020/2021 PTA and welcome back Bandit Nation!
PTA President 2020/2021
