The JBB PTA has planned many wonderful school events and activities for the coming year, but these programs cannot succeed without your help. Will you please share your time and talents this year to help enhance your student’s school experience? Any amount of time you can commit will have a positive influence in your child’s life and will help us build a happy and healthy school environment at J. Blaine Blayton Elementary! All sorts of talents and skill levels are required!

Events Worker Bees: Are you available to help out for a couple of hours from time to time? We need help staffing events such as Academic Night, Book Fair, Family Games Night, Holiday Gift Shop, Field Day, and Walk-A-Thon. We will call/email in advance to see if you are available.

Yearbook: This committee helps document school activities with photographs, lays out the yearbook using Lifetouch’s software (provided), takes yearbook orders, collects funds and distributes the yearbooks at the end of the year. Do you have pictures for the yearbook? Email them to Please note that pictures should include grade and teacher.

Hospitality: Help us let the teachers know how much we value them! Activities include supplying baked goods for Teacher Appreciation Breakfasts, preparing thank-you gifts/notes for the teachers and organizing Teacher Appreciation Week.

Reflections: Communicate the annual theme of this national student art contest, distribute flier/registration forms to classrooms, coordinate judges and entries, and plan awards for a student recognition ceremony.

5th Grade Stepping Up: Help organize a special event to commemorate the 5th grade’s graduation to Middle School.

Rebate Programs: Help raise money for the school and the PTA through rebates programs like BoxTops, Labels for Education, Farm Fresh receipts and Food Lion and Martin’s shopper cards. Worker bees are required to help clip, sort and count boxtops and labels as well as tabulating Farm Fresh receipts. This is a volunteer opportunity where you can help at home, on your own time.
