WANTED: ANTHONY PERKINS, ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL OF BLYTHE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
A warrant was issued today for the arrest of Anthony Perkins. He was easily apprehended and put in jail! Eventually, he was released from Lock-Up on good behavior for making a difference for the Muscular Dystrophy Association! Mr. Perkins was a proud participant of the Lock-Up which raises awareness and funds for MDA. This is a matter close to Mr. Perkins’ heart because Blythe has a student with muscular dystrophy. Tyler, a 5th grade student, fights the disease every day. Tyler has become a role model for other students and his positive attitude is contagious. Thanks to our jailbird (Mr. Perkins), he raised enough money to meet bail that will go toward helping costs related to MD such as shots, clinic visits, wheelchairs and even a summer camp for kids afflicted with MD. We at Blythe are so proud of Mr. Perkins because he got caught…..doing good for MDA!
***Mr. Perkins is ready to accept more donations (to keep him OUT of jail)! If you’d like to help, donations can still be made. Please click on the website below for all the info you need.

SCHOOL TOUR VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
With school in full swing, Blythe is thinking of ways to reach new families. In addition to our monthly Open Houses, we will be offering weekly drop-in tours of our school every Wednesday that we are in session between November 6 and April 30. These tours, which start at 10 a.m., will provide families with a glimpse of a day at Blythe. We need volunteers to help with these tours between 9:45 to 11:15 a.m. You can volunteer for one Wednesday or multiple times. No tour experience is needed, just enthusiasm for Blythe! If you can volunteer, please contact Katie Crompton at (980) 343-5770 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
These are just a few of the beautiful people who contribute much of their time and effort to supporting Blythe! We can't thank you enough!
