Welcome to Bell PTSA's new website!

 If you already have a Membership Toolkit account with another organization, you can use the same log-in here. 

The more engaged and involved we are as a school community, the more our students and our school will thrive. 

The PTSA is the largest volunteer child-advocacy group in the country and Bell has advocacy at the core of everything we do. In addition to our advocacy work, we focus on providing educational enrichment opportunities to Bell students, building our community connection, and giving back to our community. Take a look around our new site to learn more about the work we do, and please get involved!

The annual cost to run Bell PTSA is substantially less this year due to remote learning. In a typical year, the PTSA would fund field trips, on-site educational enrichment (e.g., assemblies, Science Day, S.T.E.M. Night, Artist in Residence, etc.), and community events (e.g., Back to School Picnic, Harvest Party, etc.). Additionally, the PTSA has a reserve fund that is in excess of our estimated annual expenses. Given this, we are reaching out to the community (Bell families and faculty) to get your feedback on where you think the PTSA funds should be allocated. Once we gather this feedback from the community, we will put together a proposed budget amendment and have the PTSA members vote on the proposed changes to the budget. Please provide your feedback via this survey. The survey is super quick - only 7 questions and takes about 3 minutes.

February is nationally recognized as Black History Month - a celebration of the substantial contributions Black Americans have made to our nation and each of our communities. It's not only a time for celebration, but also an opportunity for all of us to reflect, educate ourselves, educate our children, and continue the work of racial justice. Visit our Black History Month page for ideas on how to do just that.

The PTSA continues to fund the art enrichment program at Bell and we are thrilled to continue these lessons virtually with Mrs. Lustgarten. Visit our Art With Mrs. Lustgarten page to check out these amazing art lessons and keep creating, Bell Bulldogs!
