In an effort to stay connected during these challenging times, Bell PTSA asked the community to come together to create Bell's Friendship Rock Garden. We asked families to paint or write words on rocks about friendship, love, kindness, inclusivity, etc. and to leave the rocks at Bell. Our amazing community did just that! Nearly 300 rocks have been decorated and dropped off thus far.


While this started off as a Valentine's Day event in 2021, it has turned into a permanent rock garden at Bell. And we just love what this community has created - a lovely rock garden with hundreds of beautiful messages.


We encourage you to continue to decorate rocks and add them to the garden. We left a box of paint markers next to the garden, so anyone can easily find a rock at Bell and decorate it. If you need paint or additional markers, please reach out to your teacher or to Bell PTSA at


And please take a photo of your Bell Bulldog with their decorated rocks and either upload them on TreeRing (for the yearbook) or email the photo(s) to (include the student's name, grade, and teacher).
