Dear Bryant Families,
We would like to invite families in our community to attend our Veterans Day Assembly at Bryant on Thursday, November 7th, from 9:00-9:40 AM. There will be several classroom presentations, and 5th, 4th, and 3rd grade students will be performing as a classroom choir. Cub Scout Pack 144 will also be performing the color guard.
We encourage you to invite veterans you know to attend our assembly. At the end of the assembly, we will ask them to come up to the front to be acknowledged for their service. We look forward to honoring our U.S. Armed Forces service members, including veterans and those currently serving on active duty or the National Guard or the Reserve.
Please sign-in as a visitor at the main office before going to the lunchroom/gym for our assembly. After signing in, please enter through the east doors to the gym or the north doors of the lunchroom near the water fountains.
