Get started today! Help raise money for the Bell School!
- Annual Dues: This is the PTO’s biggest fundraiser of the year. We ask each family to contribute membership dues to the PTO. The dues collected account for half of our operating budget. Dues are accepted anytime of the year – just send in a check made out to the Bell PTO in an envelope with your child or click on the Donate button below. Any amount helps! THANK YOU!
- The Magic Hat Thrift Shop: Located at the Veterans School, the Magic Hat Thrift Shop runs entirely on community donations of items. Volunteers are needed throughout the year to sort, price and sell items at the store. Bell School gets a percentage of the profits based on the amount of volunteers from our school and has received over $13,000 so far in 2016-2017. Watch our PTO emails for dates when Bell is asked to provide volunteers. Children 5 and up are welcome to volunteer with you! For more information about the Magic Hat, visit http://magichatthriftshop.com.
- Box Tops for Education: Start collecting now! There is a container at the Upper and Lower Bell front desks to put your box tops in, or submit your child’s tops in an envelope and their teacher can give them to the front desk. For a list of products participating in this program, please see www.boxtops4education.com.
A note about fees related to online transactions – We heard from many parents over the years that they would like the convenience of online transactions when purchasing items and services in support of Bell Elementary School. To answer this call, we have added online options for many of our fundraising activities. Unfortunately, there are unavoidable third-party costs involved when we conduct financial transactions online, so we defray these costs with a small (usually $1.50) shipping/handling/ccTransactio
n fee added to online transactions. If you have any questions or concerns about this charge, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss our policies or our alternative, offline payment options.
