Angell Committee Information

The Angell Elementary School PTA is supported by membership fees, donations & fundraisers for all PTA sponsored programs and activities.  Being a part of the PTA is the best way to have input and insight into educational programs, policies and issues that will affect your child now and in the future. 

We meet the first Tuesday of each month (with a few exceptions) at 7pm in the Angell Media Center. We welcome new ideas and motivated people to make those ideas come to life! We fund a variety of projects at Angell including all assemblies, teacher classroom stipends, media center purchases and 5th grade camp stipends.  We also fund fun family social events like Art Night, Skate Night, Reading Night and more. Our Fun Run is the fundraising base for the PTA and is held in October. 

It takes a village to get the job done. We have a group of fun and dedicated volunteers to keep the wheels moving. 


The PTA sponsors several school wide assemblies. 

Book Fair

Held three times per year in the media center. Volunteers are needed to help set up, clean up and help students pick out books for their wish list. 

Caring and Sharing

This program is a Berkley School District wide fundraiser held in November and December. 

Fall Fest

A “welcome back to school” party held on the playground every September.  

Field Day

A school wide event held in June. This chair will help Mr. Price (gym teacher) purchase items needed for Field Day activities, coordinate a volunteer sign up and helps set up and monitor the event. 

Founder’s Day

Each February, the school district recognizes one teacher, support person and PTA volunteer of the year from all buildings. The PTA donates a basket to raffle. 

Fun Run

The fundraising base of the PTA held in the fall! Students seek out donations from family and friends. They then run around the school together with their classmates and teachers. It’s a highly anticipated event for the entire Angell community. 

Green Schools

The Michigan Green Schools Program encourages public and private schools to participate in environmentally friendly and energy savings activities. This chair fills out an online Green Schools application form in January of each year.

Ice Cream Social

Held in the spring, Ice Cream Social is a time for families to get together one last time before summer. Carnival games and food are available for purchase. Each classroom is responsible for putting together a themed basket to be raffled off. 


This position receives membership applications, processes payments to the Michigan PTA and maintains a database. 

Conference meals

One way that the PTA gives back to the teachers at Angell is by providing them a meal during Parent/Teacher Conferences. 

Picture Day

This position helps coordinate the traditional school pictures in the fall and the “Fun Picture Day” in the spring.

Restaurant Nights

Held monthly throughout the school year, this chair reaches out to various restaurants in the area to host families and donate a portion of the proceeds back to the PTA. 

Room Parent Coordinator

This position coordinates the room parents at Angell by holding an informational meeting in the fall and sending out various reminders throughout the year.  

School Kits

Every spring this position contacts staff to update their lists of “back to school supplies”. Kits are ordered in the spring and delivered before the start of school. 

Spirit Wear

This position coordinates the sale of clothing and other items with the Angell logo. This also includes the classroom shirts used for field trips.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week

One week in May Angell PTA honors the teachers and staff at Angell. This chair helps coordinate a PTA sponsored meal and sets up a volunteer sign up to stock the lounge with snacks.  

Trunk or Treat

This free event is held in October in the Angell parking lot. Families or groups sign up to decorate their trunk with a Halloween theme. Volunteers help hand out cider and donuts, deliver candy, set up and clean up.

We look forward to seeing you at a meeting this year. Welcome to Angell!
