Bryant Blast — Save the Date!

The Bryant Blast will be held on Saturday, May 13th from 12 pm – 4 pm. Plan for pony rides, fun games and activities, sno-cones, tasty food and much, much more!

Wanna help plan the Blast? It can’t happen without you! We need assistance in the following areas. Contact the Blast Committee at blastvolunteers@gmail.com if you’re interested in helping.

  • Raffle Baskets — Love to shop? Enjoy creating fun prize baskets? Then this is the job for you! Join our raffle basket team to assist with collecting items and creating these highly sought after Blast items!
  • Crazy Hats — Do you enjoy seeing what fun creations Bryant kids come up with to sell at the Blast? We need 1 to 2 volunteer to take the lead in getting hat supplies to rooms, collecting finished hats and determining ticket price per hat for the day of the Blast. No artistic talent needed!
  • Face Paint Lead — Do you have a flair for face painting or just enjoy creating a fun space for kids to get an awesome design on Blast day? We need 1 volunteer to take the reins and organize the designs for the day. Much of this work is already complete from last year’s lead. This position doesn’t require much time but you’d need to be available to set up the station on the day of the Blast.

Volunteer! Sign up now to get your pick of shifts

We’re about halfway to filling all our spots, but there are still some choice jobs available indoors and out, including staffing our new Beat the Bucket game which you won’t want to miss! Parent and community volunteers are essential to making Blast a success, so please sign up now. Shifts are about 2 hours long, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the Blast when you’re not on the clock. There are also special shifts just for our 5th graders. Be sure to sign them up for one or two shifts. The younger kids love to see them!

Crazy Hats! Be Creative and Have Fun!

Hat bases are being delivered to the classrooms now. Let the creativity begin! This is an opportunity for you and your family to be imaginative. Your creation will be sold at the Blast! The crazier, the better – although elegant hats are fun too.

Turn them back in by Friday, May 6th. Collection bins will be available in the hallways starting on May 4th. Submit your hat flat to your teachers. Please do not staple the hats. They will be stapled by Blast volunteers. Read more

Get ready for Blast Raffle Baskets!

This year our annual spring carnival, the Bryant Blast, will be held on Saturday, May 14th. One of the most anticipated events at the Blast is the basket raffle that takes place on the school stage. Who doesn’t want to win an amazing, basket packed full of goodies for just one dollar?!  All of the money earned from these baskets goes directly to the Bryant PTSA.  Last year the raffle baskets earned $8,345 for Bryant programs!

To make this event a success, we need your participation! Please contribute money or a new item to help fill up your child’s classroom basket. See below for your child’s classroom theme. Donation details will come home with your student this week. This form will provide details and specific donation suggestions. Also, if you have a large size basket at home collecting dust, we’d love to re-use it.
