Writers’ Celebration 2017! Thursday, May 25th

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 schoolwide 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). 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.

 

Are you Bryant’s next Reflections chair?

Looking for an opportunity to interact with students, parents, and staff? This is the role is for you! No background in art or familiarity with the program is needed.

Reflections is an annual PTSA sponsored art competition. The chairperson promotes the program, collects and organizes submissions, arranges judging, and prepares advancing pieces for city-level competition (primarily Oct – Nov). The tasks have been thoroughly documented, and you’ll have the opportunity to review everything with the current chair.

Writer’s Celebration Bookmark Contest

The 2017 Writer’s 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) on the bookmark entry form. Two winners from each grade will have their bookmarks copied and distributed during this year’s Writer’s Celebration (May 25th). Please use only dark ink or pencil, no colors. Your design must fit within the box shown on this page. Also, no tracing is allowed.

Entries must be received by Wednesday, May 10th. Questions? Contact Rachel Gleeson
