Virtual Author Visit

Posted by admin on September 16, 2020 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

Our Fall author visit has been canceled. However, Aaron Renyolds of Creepy Carrots and Nerdy Birdie sent us the following message:

Hey there!

So bummed that we’re having to postpone our author visit this fall! I know you and your kids and teachers are as well. To help soften the blow, I’ve created this video, so that they can hear it directly from me. Please feel free to play this for them, share it, across the school, and use it in any way that benefits you.

Can’t wait until things are normal again and I can visit in person. Until then, know that you are a rock star and I’m cheering you on for all your efforts, flexibility, and perseverance during these times!

Welcome Back! A letter from our PTA President Sarah Leone

Posted by admin on September 4, 2020 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

Dear Blythe Park Parents:
Welcome to our new families and welcome back to our returning families! I am honored to be serving as your PTA President for the 2020-2021 school year. I am excited to be working with a very talented group of Executive
Board Members and Committee Chairs to support our incredible staff as they continue to offer our students the best possible learning experience.
Blythe Park is a wonderful place, due in part to the very active roles parents play. We hope that our new parents join in and returning families continue to stay engaged. We want you to know that your contributions to our PTA
make a difference in the lives of our students. Blythe Park PTA plays an integral role in our school. Not only do we host fun social events all throughout the year, but we provide much-needed funds for our teachers and staff to enhance their classroom and curriculum. In past
years we have supported the fitness programs, our school garden, author visits, science fair, Veteran’s day celebration, Halloween play, talent show, field day, swimming party, fun lunch, ice cream social, teacher
appreciation week, yoga classes, and so many other activities that make the Blythe Park school experience an amazing and memorable one for our kids. While this year might not look the same, we are still working hard to
bring the Blythe Park community closer together through planned online and socially distanced activities. The outpouring of enrichment and fun requires hard work and dedication from our community. Each of us at
Blythe Park has different talents and resources that are desperately needed to make our school what it is. Some parents contribute by volunteering in our classrooms, others chair or join a committee that brings something
special to our students. All information about PTA and our events is available on our website, www.blytheparkpta.org. Registration
forms for PTA membership or upcoming events will be posted here with the option to pay online. Please register and look through our events to see if you can volunteer. If you would like to help but are not sure how to go
about it, please contact myself or one of our board members. We are looking forward to an amazing year!

We are Better Together,

Sarah Leone

President, Blythe Park PTA
