Magazine Sale a SUPER HERO style success!

Magazine Sale a SUPER HERO style success! 

Congratulations to our Bell MS heroes who sold over $56,000 of magazine subscriptions, renewals and lovebags through the on-line and traditional paper order system. That along with donations made for a total profit exceeding $25,000!  We have already awarded more than $20,000 in grant requests for this current school year so the kids will benefit from the success. A big KABOOM thank you to all the students who sent emails and contacted family and friends regarding the sale and to their parents who ensured the orders made it to school!  Our teachers were fantastic with their encouragement of participation and patience with the process.  And none of this could happen without our wonderful Principal’s support and the many PTA volunteers who took care of advertising, organizing, reporting, and supervising all the events associated with this fundraiser.  Go BOBCATS!!
