The Bryant School community warmly welcomes you to explore rewarding volunteer opportunities. Learn when and how to be involved in your student’s classroom. The opportunities are many: reading groups, science, computer, class parties and project prep. Seattle Public Schools new online volunteer application for school volunteers will also be discussed and questions answered.

Beyond the classroom, the Bryant PTSA has many volunteer opportunities to fit the busiest of parent schedules. Parent involvement benefits every student in our school. Room parents are strongly encouraged to attend.

There are two sessions to choose from:

Or

Thursday, October 4 from 6-7 p.m. in the Bryant Library
This evening session will be followed by a Back to Schoo Mixer at Ravenna Brewing Co, where PTSA will supply some light noshes.
