Dear Blythe Park Families,

Partnerships between parents, educators, and children enhance children’s success.  We know that children learn more and have better lives when everyone in the school community works together to share thoughts, information and work on projects to benefit children. The Blythe Park PTA hosts programs that benefit the children at our school.  This year we are planning to offer the following:

These events are organized and funded by the PTA and would not be possible without the generous donation of time, fundraising efforts, and direct donations from our parents.   Organizing school events during a global pandemic has been an ongoing challenge.  Thanks to our community, last year we were able to still offer fun in-person and Zoom opportunities for our families.  We are looking to our families to help with new ideas on how to make Blythe Park even more fun!   By becoming a member of the PTA, you can become an important part of helping to ensure that these plans become a reality.  Benefits of PTA membership include:

  • Printed Directory listing families and staff contact information – families love this and comment that they reference it often! 
  • The opportunity to volunteer at PTA events and activities. 
  • Discounts at local and national businesses listed on the national PTA website.
  • Be a part of what makes Blythe Park an amazing community!

To join the PTA please click on the ‘Join Here’ link below!

Be sure to sign up for our weekly PTA Happenings email on our Blytheparkpta.org webpage.
