Staff Report

Tuesday, January 24th, 2023

On Friday, January 20, 2023, Rick Busby with Busby’s Heating and Air presented Blythe Elementary School with a $1000 check as part of The Busby’s Cares Community Contribution initiative. This contribution was made to assist the school in its efforts to raise funds for student field trips to the Georgia Aquarium.

Different grade levels from Blythe Elementary will visit the aquarium on March 3rd, 10th and 17th of this year. The school applied for and received three (3) Sponsored Education Admissions (SEA) Grants from The Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta which will cover admissions tickets for all students and employees. Due to county bus driver shortages and the trips extending beyond regular school hours, Blythe Elementary was required to hire charter buses costing $14,400. Donations have also been received from other local businesses and families but the school needs approximately $2900 to finish covering the cost of transportation. Donations are greatly appreciated and may be sent to:

Blythe Elementary School, 290 Church Street, Blythe, GA 30805. Donations may also be made online through GoFundMe using this link:
