Volunteer! Sign up now to get your pick of shifts

We’re about halfway to filling all our spots, but there are still some choice jobs available indoors and out, including staffing our new Beat the Bucket game which you won’t want to miss! Parent and community volunteers are essential to making Blast a success, so please sign up now. Shifts are about 2 hours long, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the Blast when you’re not on the clock. There are also special shifts just for our 5th graders. Be sure to sign them up for one or two shifts. The younger kids love to see them!

New bell time task force findings

Thank you for completing the parent survey posted a couple of weeks ago. Your feedback is very valuable as the PTSA helps to align after school activities with the new bell times.

Several important themes emerged from the survey.

  • More parents will require after school child care. 50% of parents said they will now need to secure child care because of the new bell times.
  • No morning programs. Only Bike/Walk to Bryant and Safety Patrol/ Crossing Guard Duty would remain in the morning, all other programs would need to move to the afternoon.
  • Participation in Clubs, ASE, & other programs seem unaffected by bell times.
  • Participation in Clubs, ASE, & other programs improve when time is increased to 2 hours.

May is Bike to School Month, and Bike to Bryant is ready to celebrate with fun events for all. Save these dates:

  • Friday, April 29 Bike Month Kickoff, on the playground after school: Come get your bike tuned up for free, decorate your bike, play games, and sign up to participate in bike month.
  • Wednesday, May 4 Bike to School Day. Meet at Top Pot at 8:30 in the morning, enjoy some donuts and coffee, then ride to school together. This is a parent-escorted event.
  • Friday, May 27 Obstacles and Popsicles, on the playground after school: Test your skills on a bicycle obstacle course, and then relax with a popsicle.

The Bryant Bike Fairy and her entourage will also be looking for kids biking to school on Friday mornings through out May. Those “caught” will receive praise and prizes.
