Dear Blythe Park Community,

Welcome to the Principal Page. I am Casimira Zarzycki Gorman, and I am thrilled to be the principal of Blythe Park School! Building relationships with the students and families of Blythe Park as well as learning new ways to improve our school are my primary missions this year. It is an exciting time to work in the field of education. The increases in rigor and expectations can certainly be overwhelming, but also exhilarating as we watch the children learn and grow. I am so grateful for the parents who ask, “What can I do to help our school? How can best help my child at home?” Thank you for this level of support. It has not gone unnoticed.

Communication and working together will be the keys to our success. The Blythe Park staff and I are so appreciative of the positive comments and helpful suggestions you have provided along the way- keep them coming! Please also visit your child’s class website to see new updates throughout the year. Our involved and supportive community is our most significant strength, and it shows in the amazing children that walk through the doors of Blythe Park each and every day.

Thank you for everything you do for Blythe Park School and our bright, thoughtful and creative students. I am excited to partner with each of you to make your child’s educational experience memorable, fruitful and successful.

Kind Regards,
Casimira Zarzycki Gorman
