Beautiful fall weather graced our Walktober events to celebrate Bryant walkers this year! Each Friday morning over 100 Bryant students visited one of our four walking stations, had a treat, visited with friends and neighbors, and headed to school together. We thank everyone who helped with the stations, as well as those who stopped by a station.
It is great to see a large contingent of Bryant walking to school – not only does it help cut down on car traffic during drop off, it’s also a fun to start the day with fresh air and friends. As the coming months grow darker and wetter, stay warm and happy — keep on walking to school!
Deadline: Thursday, Nov 9
CALLING ALL BRYANT STUDENTS! Please submit one or more entries to Reflections! Kids can create a collage, write a story or poem, paint or draw a picture, choreograph a dance, take a photograph, create a computer-generated image – almost anything that the theme, “WITHIN REACH,” inspires them to think up. Several Bryant submissions will be selected for entry at City level. ALL entries will be displayed in our hallway for Family Art Night. Make sure to help your kids understand the requirements for each category and for packaging their entries.

We are in the process of selecting judges for this year’s competition!
