For many of us, the winter holidays are a time to indulge in good food and sweet treats. However, for many students on free and reduced meal plans, the winter holiday represents a time of food insecurity where they don’t know where their next meal will come from while away from school. With the support of 4th grade families, the Student Hunger Service Project will provide food insecure students in Northeast Seattle with food over the winter break.
The 4th grade food drive runs Monday, November 27 – Monday, December 11th. Collection bins are located in each 4th grade classroom and includes Kearney’s, James’, Salisbury’s, and Benaltabe’s split 4th/5th grade class. All food donations are due by December 13. (If you don’t have time to shop, you can donate money towards the HIP food drive and we’ll do the shopping for you on Thursday, December 14). The packing party where food items are assembled into 100 HIP packs will be Friday, December 15 at 7pm in the lunchroom.
Please look for the Kid mail flyer and email from room parents with more details and a SignUp Genius link to donate specific individually wrapped items.
Direct any questions to Amy Hughes or Leeann Huntington.
Thank you in advance for your support.

We need cool stuff for our online auction!
Bryant’s online auction will be March 5-12, 2018, as a stand-alone event. The auction committee is gearing up, and we’re starting by asking our Bryant parent community for any awesome items you might be able to donate.
What could you give? Do you know anyone who could give something cool? Here are examples of things we’d love to receive:
- Seahawks, Sounders or Mariners tickets
- Gift cards to local restaurants, bars and pubs
- Vacation rentals
- Unique experiences for kids and/or adults (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! Be creative and bring us any/all of your ideas!
- 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 from our local community – all in support of our amazing school. The deadline for auction item submissions is Feb. 1, 2018.
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).
