One more reminder to send school materials that have been at home throughout this school year (and possibly last school year) back to Blythe Park. Textbooks, ReadyGen Text Collections, Math in Focus textbooks, math manipulatives, library books, etc. should be returned to your child’s classroom teacher. Please note that student workbooks and other consumable materials do not need to be returned. 

Remote students should place all their material in a bag, labeled with their name, grade level and remote teacher’s name. 

Supply Drop-off Bins are outside the main entrance of the school.

Blythe Park Families,

Please consider signing up to water the Prairie Garden and Butterfly Garden on the west side of the school by June 1. We need one family per week to turn on the soaker hoses for a total of 2 hours each. The gardens need this activity performed 3 times per week preferably every other day.
After the sign-ups are full, we will send home more specific directions and a special key for the water access. Look for this note and key in your child’s backpack the week of June 7. We currently need people for the weeks of 8/2, 8/9 and 8/16.

Thank you,
Mrs. Bryan & Mrs. Pollock
