Make sure to help your kids understand the requirements for each category and for packaging and labeling their entries.

There’s nothing like finishing off the first week back (or if you’re a Kindergartner, celebrating the last Friday before school starts) at Bryant with ice cream! This is the long-awaited time for students and parents to rub shoulders with all the old buddies, favorite teachers, and new friends. One bowl for $3 or two bowls for $5 supports the 4th Graders as they start raising funds for 5th Grade camp. Enter through the set of three doors on the southwest side of the building adjacent to the Bryant “Hands On Garden.”
And 4th Graders, this kicks off our fundraising for next year’s Islandwood camp, and it’s your rite of passage into the ice cream scooper hall of fame! Don’t miss out — reserve your spot now!
What is the Writers’ Celebration? Every year at Bryant the PTSA celebrates the accomplishments of all our student writers by hosting the Writers’ Celebration, a school-wide event during which each student has the opportunity to share a piece of writing – a book, story or poem he or she has authored — in small, multi-age groups. This is one of the few activities at Bryant that mixes all grade levels, and it is heartwarming to watch the older students help and encourage the younger ones. The students work long and hard on these projects and are very proud to share them with their peers.
Where do you come in? We will need volunteers to lead a group of six or seven enthusiastic students for 50 minutes. Each group will be facilitated either by 1-2 volunteer leaders or by a teacher. Please note that due to space constraints, we will be unable to accommodate any additional parent spectators.
How do you sign up?
- Step 1: In order to lead a group, you must complete all SPS volunteer requirements (which include a screening disclosure form, taking a short online course, reviewing online docs, and providing copy of photo ID). Review the 2107-2018 Volunteer Requirements. Please take a moment to complete all volunteer requirements. If you have already done so this year, you do not need to do it again.
- Step 2: Complete the volunteer request web form or complete and return the paper form that will come home with your child in early May.
Questions? Please contact Volunteer Lead, Brent Aliverti.
The 2018 Writers’ Celebration is right around the corner, and that means it’s time for the annual bookmark design contest! Bryant students are invited to design a bookmark based on a book (or related to a book or reading). Two winners from each grade will have their bookmarks copied and distributed during this year’s Writer’s Celebration (May 24th). Download your entry form, or look for it in kid mail.
Entries must be received by Wednesday, May 9th.
Questions? Contact Rachel Gleeson
The final numbers are in…and the Bryant online auction raised $34,472! That’s a huge win for our school, and it will make a big difference in funding the important programs sponsored by the PTSA.
We want to thank each and every person who participated in the auction. Together, we built our community and made a difference for our students.
On behalf of the entire auction committee, thank you for making this auction such a success. We sure had fun putting it together for you! If you’re interested in helping us assemble next year’s auction we’d really love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org! The auction is a big undertaking, and having a larger team would help spread the load. And of course, it’s a ton of fun and very rewarding. Please join us!
