Belvedere Elementary School PTA
Minutes from the Sept 14, 2021 PTA meeting
Welcome Back to School for the 2021-2022 School Year
One way to become involved in your child’s education is to join the Parent-Teacher Association. The PTA strengthens our school community by planning and sponsoring student activities, family events, staff appreciation events, and more. PTA membership dues, donations, and fundraisers are used to sponsor assemblies, fund field trips, and purchase books, technology, and teacher supplies. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, community members, and teachers and staff can all join our PTA.
You do NOT need to pay dues to attend our monthly meetings or events. You must pay dues to vote on PTA business, however. You also do not need to pay dues to join our email list.
You may mail payments by check to "Belvedere Elementary School PTA, 6540 Columbia Pike, Falls Church, VA 22041" or through PayPal: https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/belvederePTA

Volunteering for 2021-2022
Belvedere PTA needs your help! We need Coordinators and Volunteers to plan, coordinate, and staff the activities the PTA organizes throughout the year. We appreciate any level of help or support you could provide. Some activities require small ongoing time commitments, some events require a large number of volunteers, and some jobs can be done in the comfort of your own home on your own schedule. If we do not get volunteers, events will not happen. Please reach out to us at email@example.com if you are interested in volunteering. Thanks!
A Very Special "Thanks" to our 2020-2021 Volunteers!
The PTA only runs through volunteer support. The current board extends our gratitude and thanks to the previous board and the many exceptionally committed volunteers who supported us through the unprecedented year that was the 2020-2021 school year. We thank you for all you do!

We now have a PayPal account making it easier for the community to donate and support our vital missions financially. Just click on the link below. Please give what you can because every amount makes a meaningful difference to the school. The PTA is a registered 501c3 and your donations may be tax deductible!
Are you shopping at Amazon?
Help support the school by using Amazon Smile!
Amazon Smile is a program run by Amazon. It lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features. The difference is that when customers shop on Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com), the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. Learn more about Amazon Smile here.
Our organization is "Belvedere Elem PTA". Please be careful to select the one listed in Falls Church, VA because there is more than one school listed under Belvedere.
We are always looking for parents to copy the flyers for upcoming events or just Wednesday Folders. The school is in need for parents this week to help copy and put together back to school night information! Please let us know if you can just give a half hour a week to help with Wednesday Folders. This is a great opportunity to volunteer on your own time. Stop in before having lunch with your child. Click here to sign up.
5th Grade End of Year Event
We are looking for volunteers to be on the 5th Grade End of Year Committee. Help plan events during the year to support the 5th Grade Farewell. Please reach out to Dana Chodos (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in volunteering.
Food for Others Delivery
We need your help getting our food donations from the Belvedere Cafeteria to Food for Others in Fairfax (3938 Prosperity Ave.). They are open 9:30-5 Monday-Friday. During the school day, it takes about 15 minutes to get to Food for Others from Belvedere. When our students do not open a food item, we are able to donate this to Food for Others, helping families in need and reducing waste. Please consider signing up via the link below:
We are also looking for anyone interested in being an Outreach Coordinator (preferably Spanish or Amharic). If you would like more information please email us at email@example.com
