ASE class descriptions for Winter Session are now up! I am still waiting for some details (session length, cost etc...) about a couple of classes that will be offered (like the very popular Creative Coding class) but I wanted to get the bulk of them up so you may begin your planning. Movement classes are at a minimum since we do not have use of the cafeteria and the weather is just too icky for the students to be outside but they will return for Spring Session.

Registration will take place from December 1st - December 15th. Providers cannot accept checks etc... prior to that time (no spot holding).

As always, feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

This is your opportunity to share your learning and experience, be a team leader and inspire future scientists!

The 2015 Bryant Science Fair will take place on Saturday, March 14th, 1-3 pm. Scientist Mentors commit to one session per week, January 5th to March 13th, 1:35-3:15 pm. Choose one day of the week:

Advanced Learning Updates

Thursday, 13 November 2014 08:20

Many students in grades 2-5 will be offered the opportunity to test on Saturdays at the John Stanford Center due to space limitations at school sites. Students in Kindergarten and first grade will, in most cases, be tested at their school during regular hours, as will all students who cannot participate in Saturday testing.

All students whose applications were sent by the October 2 deadline will be scheduled for testing. Please be patient. Testing takes place throughout November, December, and January. Parents will be notified by phone or email prior to testing.

Due to the overwhelming volume of students who qualify for testing, all Bryant 1st graders will now be tested on Saturday, Dec. 6 at the John Stanford Center. If your student has qualified for testing, you will be receiving more information regarding times, rescheduling, etc. soon. Please plan accordingly.

Raise Money for the Bryant PTSA While You Shop

Thursday, 13 November 2014 08:27

Did you know that you can raise money while you do your normal shopping? Shop at Amazon and a portion of your purchase price will go to the Bryant PTSA. That's it! Be sure to go through the special Amazon link which you can find on the left sidebar Bryant PTSA homepage and get into the habit of going through it when you shop. This is essentially free money for Bryant, so lets take advantage of it, especially with Christmas just around the corner!

November's reader of the month

Monday, 10 November 2014 11:22

November's featured reader is 4th grader Naomi C!

The holidays are fast approaching, and you might find Naomi entertaining Babymouse later this month at her Thanksgiving table. Otherwise, she'll be curled up with a good book in the coziest corner she can nose out for the remainder of the the Autumn season. Check out Naomi's Read poster in the library!

Traffic patterns around Bryant

Tuesday, 04 November 2014 00:00

Please remember that there is NO stopping on NE 60th, the street in front of the school. Stopping to either drop off or pick up children creates a dangerous environment for everyone. This could cause a potentially serious accident. Also, do not stop or park in the bus zone at any time. We have several buses that come at different times during the day. We also have activity and field trip buses that arrive and depart at different times during the day. Please use 34th Ave. NE or 33rd Ave. NE to drop-off or pick-up your children. Let's remember to be SAFE out there! Thank you!


Recycle Ink Cartridges at Bryant

Wednesday, 05 November 2014 20:05

Bring in your empty home-size refillable ink cartridges, and the Class of 2016 will recycle them for you! Ink cartridge recycling has been a successful fundraiser for 5th grade IslandWood environmental camp for several years now. It's easy to do and good for the planet!

You can send your empty ink cartridges to school via kid mail, take them to the office, or drop them in one of the tall cardboard boxes in the 1st and 4th grade halls. Please note that we no longer accept Cannon GPR or other "tube" type toner cartridge for this recycling program. Questions? Email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
