Hi Bells Ferry Family,
We are so excited about Fall Festival next weekend. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and proceeds from this event pay for Accelerated Reader and First in Math licenses for every student at Bells Ferry Elementary.
There are a few things we would like to ask of our membership:
We are seeking donations of:
Squeeze bottle Condiments (ketchup, relish, mustard, mayo)
Hot Dog Buns
Individually Wrapped Candy for prizes (no peanuts, no chocolate)
Please send in any items and have your student leave them in the box under the tv in the lobby.
Thank you for all you do to support Bells Ferry Elementary. We really appreciate our Bells Ferry Family.
I received an answer to the question about how to order school spirit wear:
The above link will take you to the PTA website where you will be able to sign in to make a secure online order. Hope this helps.
Our scheduled library day has moved from Wednesday to Friday. You should find the first library book in your child’s backpack this weekend (Sept. 1st.) Be sure to return it to school by the following Friday. Thank you!
This flyer went home in Take Home Folders today.
Bandit Day is this Friday, August 25th. Please have your child wear school spirit wear or a blue shirt. Thank you. Goooooooo team!
The District has determined that students not in attendance on Monday, August 21, 2017, will be counted excused with a parent note. Students must be at school until 11:15 AM to be counted present for the day. We are allowing checkouts until 1:30 PM for parents who want to watch the event with their child in person. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to the 1:30 PM deadline. Please make sure you have your ID. Dismissal will be delayed by 45 minutes to ensure the safety of students and employees.

North Georgia Fair Food Booth with Cobb County Sheriff’s Office
The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office has been our partner in education for many years. Representatives from the Sheriff’s Office volunteer their time, resources and talents for our students many times a month. The biggest fund raiser they have for their Partners in Education Fund is to sponsor a food booth at the North Georgia State Fair. This can bring in up to $10,000 which in return comes back to Bells Ferry Elementary.
The Sheriff’s Office is in need of volunteers to assist with the food booth. They need Bells Ferry Community Members to help with taking and filling food orders. The North GA State Fair runs from Thursday, September 21st through Sunday, October 1st. Feel free to coordinate your volunteering time with the North Georgia Fair events. Parents may split the hours of the shift but please know that children under the age of 16 years will not be allowed in the booth. High school students needing volunteer hours are more than welcome to sign up!
Benefits of volunteering:
- Free Fair Parking
- Free Admission to the Fair
- Free Meal for Volunteers (from booth)
