We need cool stuff for our online auction!

Bryant’s online auction, which in the past was held in conjunction with the Bryant Blast, is moving to March this school year. It will be its own stand-alone event (online, of course), and we need your help to make it a success.

Right now, we’re asking for donations of auction items. What could you give? Who do you know who could give something awesome? Here are some examples of things we’re looking for:

  • Seahawks, Sounders or Mariners tickets
  • Gift cards to local restaurants, bars and pubs
  • Ski lift tickets
  • Vacation rentals
  • Unique experiences (tour a TV station, create and name a burger at a local cafe, etc.)
  • Parent parties (wine tasting, family street party, etc.) The sky’s the limit with this one!
  • Shopping and retail gift cards
  • Movie and theater tickets

The list goes on! We’re asking you to be creative and help us fill the auction with things our community will chomp at the bit to bid on — all in support of our amazing school. The deadline for auction item submissions is Feb. 1.

Ready to donate? Fill out an auction form with your donation and contact information and mail it with the item to the school (or drop it off in the front office). There are also printed forms available in the office.

Questions? Get in touch with us. Thank you!

Got the chops to be Bryant’s Playground Supervisor? Paid position available!

New Playground Supervisor Needed: Paid Position!

Do you have a few extra hours in the middle of your school day? Do you love being outside? If so, we’d like to hear from you! One of our current playground monitors (Spencer) is moving on, and we are looking for someone to replace him. Ideally, we hope to find someone who enjoys working with young children, has good people skills, and is looking for a part-time position in a school setting. As a key member of our staff, this person works with our teachers and one other playground supervisor to keep our students safe and well during our lunch and afternoon recesses.

This PTSA funded position pays $13 hourly, with a daily time commitment between 10:30 and 1:30 pm. We are looking to hire someone as soon as possible, who will begin in early January. If interested, please contact Julie Pearson, Assistant Principal, or at 206-252-5200.
