Communications with the Beall Community

Welcome to Beall!  There are SO many ways to keep informed of all things Beall and to get involved in the school and PTA.

Backpack Mail

Many important documents come in backpack mail from your child’s teachers, the school, PTA, after school vendors and more, so please make sure you check your child’s backpack every day.

Beall PTA and Beall Elementary websites

The daily updated www.beallpta.org has a ton of information including:

. . . and much more!

The school’s website, https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/schools/bealles/, has a calendar, teacher and staff contact information, resources for students, and much more.

Bulletin Boards

Bulletin boards are located inside the school's front doors and outside and around the corner from the gym door (on your right as you head outside the school), near the walkers’ exit.

Email

  • You will receive periodic and important Email blasts from www.beallpta.org once you join the PTA as a member or sign up as a supporter on the site. This is one-way communication but instantaneous. You will get urgent messages in a timely manner through these email messages, which generally come from Communications@BeallPTA.org. If you wish, unsubscribe anytime by clicking on the removal message at the bottom of the email or log into your account.

  • A Beall PTA Newsletter comes out once a month starting in September via email subscription only.

  • The Principal Newsletter is published every two weeks. Please, please, please make sure the Beall ES office has your correct email on file, as this Newsletter and other important updates are often sent directly from Principal Alter. The school’s email list is not run by the PTA.

Monthly Beall PTA Meetings

Beall PTA meetings are held monthly in Beall’s Media Center and are open to the Beall community.  These meetings generally are scheduled for the first Tuesday of each month.  Child care is provided by Global.  Periodically, workshops and other special events / activities are planned as part of the monthly meetings.  This is a great way to find out what’s going on at school and to get involved.
