Welcome to Bell PTSA's Website 


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. More about what we do 

As a reminder, all PTSA memberships expire at the end of each school year. Please renew your PTSA membership today! If you are new to Bell PTSA membership, please take a moment to learn more about the value the Bell PTSA brings to our school community and how your membership, financial donations, and volunteering is what makes our work possible. 

Attention incoming kindergarten families: Bell PTSA will be hosting an incoming kindergarten playdate at Bell's playground on Wednesday, August 11th from 11:30am - 1pm. If you have an incoming kindergartener this year, we hope you'll join us! Students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and face masks should be worn by all parties, including those who have been vaccinated (per LWSD's COVID guidance).

We know how challenging it has been to connect with other families in our school community during this pandemic, especially for families who are new to Bell. Given this, we have organized an outdoor community gathering that allows us to all come together, while keeping the safety of our community in mind. more info

Bell PTSA's Executive Board for the 2021-2022 school year stepped into their respective positions on July 1st (the first day of Bell PTSA's fiscal year). The board is working over the summer to plan all of our programs and events for next year. Be sure to say thank you to these women who have carved out time in their hectic schedules to give back to our community. It's truly amazing how much Bell PTSA does for our school community and we are so thankful.
