Bryant bikers: Track your trips in May!

bikebryantMay is Bike to School Month, and we want to know how much Bryant students are biking! Each week, go to our online trip tracker form and log your child’s trips to and from school. If your child is not able to bike to school, other biking trips (to the library, grocery store, music lessons, etc) may be substituted. Students with the most trips logged will win prizes, and the class with the most trips will win the shiny Bike to Bryant award!
