Tezca service Levine's.jpg 

 Part of the IB philosophy is student action/service. Ms. Tecza’s second grade class

from Blythe Elementary School (an IB World School) discussed ways to give back to

the community during the holidays so the focus is not on receiving, but giving to others.

 They collected items for the children at Levine’s Children’s hospital, made a banner

 and did crafts for those children as well. Ms. Tecza will be making a very special delivery

 to Levine’s Children's Hospital!

 The Holiday Store

Each year, Ms. Burton and Ms. Hankins, Blythe Elementary Secretaries,

make a list and check it twice.  They applied the IB attribute of caring by recognizing

 families that need financial assistance with shopping for the holidays. To support

 these families, they collaborated with St. Marks’ Catholic Church.  St. Marks’ collected

hundreds of new toys, coats and books for parents to go shopping.  The Holiday Store

 was held this past Saturday, December 3, 2016. These ladies, along with Blythe and

St. Marks volunteers, are true caring IB Scholars.



There were name brand hats, gloves, and scarves ranging from $1 to $3.  The prices

rangedfrom $1 to $15 for popular books, games, and toys like Maze Runner, Harry Potter, Legos, Barbie Dolls, Air Hogs, Simon, Bop It, and they even had Razor Scooters as well. 




The prices are made affordable so parents can shop for their own children.
