The Blythwood PSC is an organization that works to (i) help improve student achievement by advising the school principal and the school board on various issues and (ii) enhance the accountability of the education system to parents. Anyone with a child attending Blythwood is a member of the PSC and is encouraged to attend and participate in general meetings. These regular meetings (generally held every six weeks) keep parents up-to-date on activities at the school as well as issues relevant to parents, the school and the education system.
The PSC sponsors various extracurricular programs and events or our children, such as the After Four program, Book Fair, Athletics and the Fall Fun Fair. The PSC also organizes class parents each September, coordinates the Safe and Caring School program, the “Kiss and Ride” program, pizza lunches and the “Lunch Lady” as part of the lunchtime nutrition program and more. We are grateful for the many parents who volunteer their time to organize these popular events and programs.
The PSA, a registered charitable organization, raises money to provide curriculum support (eg. chess programs, literacy and numeracy materials, “Scientist in the School”) and tools (eg. computers, sports and playground equipment), that help to make Blythwood such a wonderful place to learn. Many volunteers are needed to assist with these fundraising goals.
