Our school did an amazing job raising money for heart health.  Third grade raised the most money, and our very own Jack raised the most money in the school!  We had a great time being heart healthy!

We are holding our 1st Annual Capital Campaign, which will be the Bells Ferry Foundation’s largest fundraising campaign of the year. When you donate, 100% of your dollars are invested directly in the students at Bells Ferry Elementary. We are hoping you will Back the Bandits and become a Bandit Buddy at $50 or more per student.  Grandparents and other relatives can become Bandit Buddies, too! Let your family and friends know that this is a great way to benefit your child’s education.

The goal is to raise $10,000 during the drive.  If we reach our goal, Ms. May will kiss a pig!  There will be individual classroom goals as well.

We made pudding to learn about the different types of productive resources.  We used natural resources (milk and pudding mix), capital resources (bowl, whisk, measuring cup, cups, and spoons), and human resources (the people stirring).  It was delicious!

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)
