Treasurer for 2019-2020 and Financial Committee Volunteers Needed!

The PTA is in need of a treasurer for next year! This is a vital position for the PTA and is necessary per our bylaws. The treasurer cannot serve more than 2 years. Unfortunately, our shadow treasurer will be unable to take the position next year. If you are interested, please contact Shelley Hyland (treasurer@bellsmill.org). Shelley will be around next year and will provide guidance as needed.

The Financial Committee is also seeking volunteers to plan out the 2019-2020 budget. A proposed 2019-2020 budget is needed before the May PTA meeting so it can be voted on prior to next year. The Financial Committee only requires 1-2 brief meetings to discuss the budget. If interested, contact Shelley (treasurer@bellsmill.org).

 

PTA Fundraising – We Want Your Input!!!

We Want Your Feedback on PTA Fundraising!

Every year the PTA relies on the generosity of Bells Mill families to provide a one-time family donation of $100 to help cover student events and activities, staff classroom supplies and appreciation, and items for the school (e.g., Chromebooks, recess equipment). However, for the past two years we have not been able to bring in enough donations to cover all expenses. We have started to look into other options for next year and we need your feedback!! Please take this brief survey by March 1st:

You responses will be tallied and shared at our next PTA meeting (open to all parents) on March 5th at 6:30pm in the Media Center.

 

International Night: New Co-Chairs & Volunteers Needed

During International night our students get to celebrate the cultural diversity of our school community. This includes ethnic food tastings, cultural performance, a global fashion show, crafts, and info table for each country, a photo booth, passports and other giveaways. Students and their families explore different countries without having to hop on a plane!

We are seeking new and enthusiastic committee co-chairs to coordinate this year’s International Night with the support of the PTA. If you are interested in co-chairing this event, the ideal parents would be able to help next year as well. Kindergarten and new families to our school are welcome to help with and even join as a chair! General volunteers are needed as well.

This year’s International Night will be held on Friday, May 17th.

If you are interested and would like to learn more about this amazing school volunteer opportunity, please email the PTA Committee Organizer, Devin Donaldson at devin.m.donaldson@gmail.com
