We’re bringing back the grade-level grants!
The Bryant PTSA is offering grants for you to hold an event for families in your grade level. Bryant PTSA will grant up to $500 to each grade level to build engagement among its families. The money is intended to help fund events for families to meet and form connections with each other, in the hopes that stronger social relationships will translate to a stronger school community for our children.
Some ideas for FUN ways to spend your grant:
- Hold a potluck cookout at a local park where you provide the burgers/hot dogs
- Host a game night at a community center or at school
- Host a movie night with free concessions (the PTSA has movie licenses that would cover this!)
- Put on a talent show
- Host a summer-time event to get families together outside of the school-year

Thursday, December 13
1:15pm Assembly • 5:30pm Open House
On December 13 we’ll ring in our Bry-Centennial, starting with an all-school assembly for our students and families. Come hear stories from former students and teachers, learn more about our namesake, and take in presentations from our current students.
Come back in the evening to celebrate with our extended community, including district and city officials, our neighbors, and long-time friends of Bryant. We’ll have light snacks and entertainment from Bryant years past.
Bry-Centennial Annual Campaign reaches 92% participation and we exceeded our goal of $150,000 in support of our kids!
Because of you, Bryant students will benefit from growth and enrichment activities, services and support. Because of you, Bryant students will participate in activities like art and music in classrooms, expanding education beyond math, science and reading. Because of you, teachers will receive extra support through classroom supplies, academic specialists and tutors. Because of you, kids will get the early intervention necessary and allow classroom teachers to focus on the class and provide each student the attention needed to succeed in school. Read more

Doors open at 6pm, Movie starts at 6:30pm
Movie is FREE, but bring cash for concessions!
All Bryant families are invited to join us for a movie screening in the Bryant cafeteria. We can’t post the name of the movie online, but let’s just say you’ll be in the company of monsters! Bring a clean blanket for kids to sit on the floor, and dress up as your cuddliest monster (if you want!). We’ll have hot dogs, popcorn, baked goods and candy for sale to support next year’s 5th Grade Islandwood experience. Kids do need an adult to attend with them. There will also be a door prize drawing, courtesy of the Annual Campaign.
Fourth graders and parents are encouraged to sign up for bringing goodies and working shifts the night of the movie. Check out the Sign Up Genius!
