Join the 2017-2018 Blythe Park PTA TODAY!
We hope you will join the PTA for the first time or renew your membership. Joining will not only benefit your children and all Blythe Park students, it will help your family connect to teachers, other parents, and all the great events happening at our school and in our district.

Every year, many parents are generous with their time, resources and talents. The PTA can’t thank you enough for your participation. We hope you will join once again, attend meetings and volunteer as often as you can. While our small school atmosphere is wonderful for our kids, it also means that we do need help, ideas, and support from all our families.

Direct Donation
As you become a PTA member, we hope you will consider giving additional financial support to our efforts and activities. Please consider giving to the Direct Donation Campaign which supports all of the activities that help make our students’ experience at Blythe Park School so incredible. We aim for 100% participation from families at any level you are comfortable with. We have a suggested donation amount of $100 per family if you are able to give at that amount. The PTA appreciates your time, generosity and all you do to enhance our students’ Blythe Park School experience. We look forward to working with you next year.
