We need you now!

Monday, 29 September 2014 14:04

The Bryant community prides itself on its parent involvement. But with nobody currently filling the roles of Volunteer Co-Coordinators, groups are having trouble recruiting parents to help run and lead their activities and events.

This position is a great way to get involved in the Bryant community and work with the PTSA, the staff and administration, and learn how it all comes together. You don't need to be a rock star event planner or networking phenom (though that would help!). Just come eager to participate and share your enthusiasm for the community.

Past Volunteer Coordinators will be on hand to lend guidance. Write This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you're able to help!

Running Club needs your leadership!

Monday, 22 September 2014 12:01

Running Club is scheduled to start up on October 17 and we look forward to getting back on the track with you all!

Unfortunately, last year's co-chairs are over-committed for the year. We're hoping to pass on the Running Club torch to an energetic parent (or two), who is willing to lead our enthusiastic group on Fridays and plan fun and engaging running games. It's incredibly rewarding, and immensely inspirational. Please let us know if you're able to take it on! Sarah and Kim will be on hand for advice and support.

Remember, the Bryant Running Club can only happen with the leadership and support of volunteers, so please step up!
