It’s that time of year where we get to show our appreciation to the amazing teachers and staff at Bell who have persevered with wit, creativity, and smarts, showing that they are true survivors outlasting the longest year ever! We have chosen the theme Survivor, as it just seemed fun and fitting! The PTSA would love your help in filling up our staff room with coffee and breakfast items, a trail mix bar, and stocking the break room with snacks, drinks, and some favorite classroom supplies.



The PTSA would love your help! Here's how you can be part of this great event:

  1. Sign-up HERE to donate items for each day, or to help with set-up. Drop items off at Bell.

  2. Be sure to have your student(s) send in a thank you card on Thursday, May 5.

  3. Get something for Bell staff from their Amazon wishlists and/or favorite things list. Please be sure to take care of the staff members in the same group (notated in the list). We want to thank ALL staff, not only the teachers.

For questions or if you want to get involved, email Tennile Jones at  




We encourage families to show their gratitude to their teachers and other Bell staff members throughout the year, not just during organized staff appreciation events. Something as simple as a thank you letter, a painting, or a poem can mean so much! You might also consider looking at the Amazon Wish List & Favorite Things List for other ways to show your appreciation.


The Amazon Wish List & Favorite Things List includes the following:

  1. Bell Staff Favorite Things - This is a list of favorite drinks, foods, colors, stores, etc. for Bell staff. While we don't have information for every staff member, we continue to update this document regularly.

  2. Bell Staff Amazon Wish Lists - This is a list of Amazon wish lists for Bell staff. Not all staff members have created a list, but most teachers have. See below for more information on Amazon wish lists.



A few things worth noting about the Amazon wish lists:

  • Not all staff are participating. If a staff member does not have a wish list, they have chosen to not participate.

  • There is no deadline. Feel free to show your support by purchasing items off these lists at anytime.
  • Each teacher and staff member is assigned to a group (the group number is in the excel document). Please consider sending a gift to everyone in the same group, as we want to ensure all staff members are included.
  • If a wishlist is low on items, please email and we will work with the staff member to add to their list.

When you checkout through the list, please make sure to select "Gift Registry Address" for the shipping address, so the item will ship directly to their home (see below image for example). If you do not see this option, please email and we will work with the teacher to update their shipping info.
