Family Movie Night: Friday, October 19

Friday, October 19
Doors open at 6pm, Movie starts at 6:30pm
Movie is FREE, but bring cash for concessions!

All Bryant families are invited to join us for a movie screening in the Bryant cafeteria. We can’t post the name of the movie online, but let’s just say you’ll be in the company of monsters! Bring a clean blanket for kids to sit on the floor, and dress up as your cuddliest monster (if you want!). We’ll have hot dogs, popcorn, baked goods and candy for sale to support next year’s 5th Grade Islandwood experience. Kids do need an adult to attend with them. There will also be a door prize drawing, courtesy of the Annual Campaign. 

VOLUNTEERS:
Fourth graders and parents are encouraged to sign up for bringing goodies and working shifts the night of the movie.  Check out the Sign Up Genius!

Your Voice Matters! Tell us what issues are most important to you.

Take the Washington State PTA online survey now to help PTSA delegates vote on the TOP 5 issues for the upcoming WA State PTA 2019-2020 Legislative Short-term platform.  Vote on issues supporting the “Health, Education & Welfare” of our students:

  • School Meals
  • Closing the Gaps to Pre-school
  • Social Emotional Learning
  • Teacher Shortages
  • Gun Safety and more…..

The survey is open now through October 5th. Take the survey to find out what’s on the proposed agenda and share your priorities with Bryant PTSA.

Questions: Contact one of Bryant’s legislative co-chairs: Jean Charette, Diana Fryc, or Yvonne Humenay Roberts

Thank you!

Because of your prompt payment, we have collected all the fees needed to give our kids and teachers the learning supplies for the school year.

We purchased over $21,000 in supplies for the start of the school year and will purchase an additional $7,000 over the next 10 months. With the amazing efforts of volunteers who came in before the start of school, we delivered more than 5 pallets of supplies to homeroom classrooms and specialty rooms like the library, gym, and music.

You helped purchase 12,182 pencils, 3,492 glue sticks, 1,220 pink erasers, 940 white board markers, 585 boxes of Kleenex, 572 sharpies and so much more for our kids.

You also raised $3,900 for a Seattle school in need. The school, without a PTSA, has a substantial free and reduced lunch population of 73% and is grateful for this unexpected help. Once they receive the donation and have the opportunity to put it to good use, we will send out an update on how you helped this school and its kids to have a better school year.  You still have an opportunity to donate, please visit our payment website to support Seattle students in need.

Family Arts Night needs volunteer leads!

Family Arts Night is a favorite event at Bryant: each April, students get to showcase their skills in a series of art projects including a T-shirt screen-printing station where students can screen the event logo on their own T-shirt. We are looking for 2 co-leaders for this event as well. Volunteers helping to organize these events will have the support and mentorship of the Bryant Arts Committee.

Please contact Kristin Zwiers with your interest!
