This year’s Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week theme is “Teaching Is Your Superpower”.  We’re excited to treat our teachers/staff to treats throughout the week as well as personalized gifts and a “Teaching Is My Superpower” T-shirt to commemorate this year.   The week’s schedule is below. 

Monday, May 3rd kicked off Staff Appreciation Week here at Blythe. Our staff memberas are true super heroes, especially this year with all the expected ups and downs! What better way to show our appreciation than to have the Teachers & Staff receive “jar of notes and candy”. 

Tuesday May 4th – Breakfast of Champions (sign up to bring a breakfast beverage)

Wednesday May 5th – Power Up Super Heros!
Thursday May 6th – Principal Lunch (Mrs. Gorman’s treats the staff to lunch)

Starting This week, Cardio Kids will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:45- 8:05 AM.

For students who are not running, please be aware of more people and extra movement on the sidewalks and path surrounding Blythe Park on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
