Parent Teacher Fellowship

If you are a parent or guardian at Belleville Mennonite School, you are a part of the PTF!        Involvement in the Parent Teacher Fellowship provides a wonderful opportunity to build relationships within the school community, get to know other parents, support school events and teach children the importance of serving and encouraging others.
Purpose

The Belleville Mennonite School Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) works to support, serve, and enhance the Christian educational needs of our students, and to promote communication and fellowship between members of our school community.

Goals
  • Encourage parental participation in the community of BMS
  • Provide fellowship opportunities for teachers and parents at BMS
  • Support excellence in the Christian education of students at BMS
  • Encourage our teachers throughout the school
  • Provide fun family activities that bring our community together
 

On the 2020-21 School Calendar, three specific dates are set aside for Parent Fellowship Meetings – October 22, January 20 & April 22.  Please plan now to attend these events which will help to keep you informed and connected.  There are a variety of additional opportunities for connecting with parents and staff, involvement with events on campus, providing needs, assisting with fundraising, volunteering, prayer support, physical and spiritual encouragement, and fellowship with one another.  There is a place for everyone!
