Field Day volunteers needed

Come join the fun at Bryant Field Day on Friday, June 17th! Volunteers are needed to help with events for K-2nd grade from 8-10 a.m., and 3rd-5th grade from Noon-2 p.m.

If you’re not able to attend Field Day, but would still like to help, we also need families to fill water balloons (provided), donate sidewalk chalk, and loan large plastic tubs.

***Please complete the SPS volunteer requirements if you wish to volunteer for Field Day. Find the volunteer forms and links on-line or pick them up outside the Bryant office. All volunteers receive an email confirmation once they are approved. Questions about volunteer requirements? Please contact Ann Marie Patterson, Volunteer Coordinator.

Please feel free to contact Julie Matz or Erin Johnson for more information or questions regarding Field Day.

Can you make a plant ID chart?

We need a volunteer to make a plant identification chart with photographs of plants and weeds in our Learning Landscape. The chart would need to list common invasive weeds in one section and native plants that need to stay in our Learning Landscape in another section.

Having this chart would make it easier for classes to come out into the Learning Landscape, and for volunteers who would like to work in the Learning Landscape on their own schedule but want clarity about what can stay and what should go.

If this volunteer opportunity is of interest to you please contact Sam Fogg and Pamela Kuhtz.

Come Blast on Saturday!

It’s finally here! Rain or shine, we’ll be Blasting on Saturday, noon-4pm! Bring all your family and friends for a fun day of games and activities inside and out. And come hungry! We’ll be serving up banh mi and hotdogs, as well as all your favorite carnival goodies!

Some of the highlights you won’t want to miss:

  • Beat the Bucket featuring our 5th Graders
  • Ropeworks jump rope demonstrations and workshops
  • Pony Rides
  • Cake Walk
  • Raffle Baskets
  • and so much more!

Celebrate Bike to School Day on Wed, May 10

Make plans to get up early on Wednesday, May 10 for a Bike to School Day celebration. Gather at Top Pot on 35th Ave NE in Wedgwood after 7 a.m. for free donuts and coffee, then at 7:30 a.m. we’ll ride to school together. This will be a parent-escorted event; kids must come with a parent.

If you want to a peek at the fun we’ll be having, check out footage here and here from the 2013 ride with the SPS Superintendent!

Time to start tracking your bike trips

It is time to track trips for Week 1 of Bike Month! Please go to our online trip tracker and tell us how many times you biked this week. This year there will be prizes for all students who log at least 1 trip, for students who bike the most trips, and for the classroom that has the most trips in May.

We have a feeling there will be lots of winners this year: this Friday, the Bryant Bike Fairy counted 82 bikes parked in the bike racks this Friday, and she caught 5 students biking on their way to school, a majority of whom were kindergartners. We here at B2B HQ have extra respect for young students who cruise our hilly environs with not so many gears!

Three ways to help garden at Bryant

Contact Sam Fogg or Pamela Kuhtz  for information about how to help with Bryant’s Gardening programs.

Weeding Volunteers Needed

Did you know that the Learning Landscape is maintained by parent volunteers? The school district mows the lawn and occasionally will prune larger trees, but all weeding and managing of the grounds is done by volunteers! Please, help us keep our Learning Landscape. Just dig in and start weeding, or come to a Fun Family Gardening meeting on Fridays after drop off.

Join us for Fun Family Gardening!

Every Friday after drop off, meet in the Hands on Garden for organized group gardening. Help us keep the Learning Landscape ready for students! No experience required and younger siblings are welcome.

If there is a rainy day dropoff, we will not meet that week.

Classroom Garden Volunteers Needed!

We’re looking for volunteers who are able to help garden with classes during the school day. Please let us know if you’d be willing to help out! Contact Sam Fogg at samantha.fogg@gmail.com or Pamela Kuhtz at pamela@kuhtz.eu
