Calling all K-3 Scientists!

Do you like to figure out how things work? Are you interested in plants and animals? Do you ask your parents a lot of questions about the world around you? Do you like to mix things together, touch things, and perform experiments at home? Then, get ready to be a scientist at K-3 Science Night!

K-3 Science Night is an opportunity for children (not their parents) in kindergarten through 3rd grade to present science experiments or demonstrations to their peers.

K-3 Science Night will be held on Thursday, March 29th in the Bryant gym/cafeteria from 6:30-7:30PM. Parents of young scientists should reserve a spot for their child by emailing maryjeanstrazer@gmail.com with their child’s name and grade.  Due to space constraints, we have to limit the total number of presentations/demonstrations to 95, so sign up early to reserve a spot for your child or group. The deadline for sign ups is Monday, March 22nd.

If your child doesn’t want to present an experiment, that’s no problem — everyone is welcome to attend K-3 Science Night to see what all the fun is about, and you don’t have to sign up to attend!

Stay tuned to the Bryant Weekly for weekly suggestions for fun experiments to try at home with your child. I hope to see as many young scientists as possible, and look forward to an evening of science excitement!

Thanks and look forward to seeing all the young scientists on March 29th.

Build community and have fun!

Now offering grade-level grants!

The Bryant PTSA is offering grants for you to hold an event for families in your grade level. Bryant PTSA will grant up to $500 to each grade level to build engagement among its families. The money is intended to help fund events for families to meet and form connections with each other, in the hopes that stronger social relationships will translate to a stronger school community for our children.

Some ideas for FUN ways to spend your grant:

  • Hold a potluck cookout at a local park where you provide the burgers/hot dogs
  • Host a game night at a community center or at school
  • Host a movie night with free concessions (the PTSA has movie licenses that would cover this!)
  • Put on a talent show
  • Host a summer-time event to get families together outside of the school-year

Download the grade-level grant info sheet, or email ptsaexec@bryantschool.org for info today.

Please remember to check the Lost and Found racks located in the main hallway and the lost and found closet, for any of your student’s lost items. There are many sweaters, coats, lunchboxes, water bottles and miscellaneous items that would love to be reunited with their owners! Please make sure to label your students items with their last name, if labeled we make our best effort to return to your students.

ALL UNCLAIMED ITEMS WILL BE DONATED TO CHARITY ON DEC 15TH .
