Bell Creek Middle School Earns National PTA Award
Posted on 08/18/2022
BCMS ExteriorBell Creek Middle School (BCMS) has been named as 2021-2023 National PTA School of Excellence.

BCMS is one of just 242 schools and PTAs in the U.S. – and one of only 19 in Virginia – to achieve this prestigious status this year. The status recognizes the commitment of schools and PTAs in building an inclusive and welcoming school community where all families contribute to enriching the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.

“The PTA is an integral part of our school community. We are so proud of the work they have done and how they continue to support all areas of our students' education,” said BCMS Principal Tim Sanders. “I know that with their dedication and resilience, they will continue to provide for our students and our community. Thank you to all the families and community members who helped our PTA become nationally recognized.”

The BCMS PTA brought back First Fridays this past school year, providing teachers and staff at the school with breakfast and/or lunch on the first Friday of every month. The PTA also offered a kindness challenge to students, assisted William Fox Elementary School in Richmond with school supplies after the school’s fire earlier this year, and helped fund a professional learning opportunity for a teacher at the school to visit NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center for Space Camp, among other accomplishments.

“The BCMS PTA is so proud of all of the hard work and dedication that goes into caring for our Bulldog students, teachers, administrators, and families in this community. We are thankful to be recognized again as a School of Excellence for the 2021-2022 school year and give the credit back to our team, our families and our community,” the PTA said. “While this recognition is accepted by our entire team, we would like to specifically highlight Yolanda Chandler, our Family Engagement Chairwoman, for all of her hard work in connecting with the families in the BCMS community and in achieving this School of Excellence recognition. Thank you for another great year, Bulldog family!”

This is the second consecutive year that BCMS has been recognized as a School of Excellence.
