The 25th Annual 5th Grade Bryant Science Fair is coming soon! Please join the 5th grade students and their Scientist Mentors from UW for fascinating science presentations and demonstrations. All Bryant students and families are invited to this celebration of science.

In just a few short weeks we will be kicking off our 5th Grade Science Fair program! We are looking for volunteers to support this longstanding in-class program that links small groups of students with UW scientist mentors to develop and conduct an experiment.

Volunteers are needed for the following roles:

  • Photograph experiments and groups
  • Providing in-class support for our UW Scientist Mentors
  • Collect extra supplies from science fair closet

Dates, times, signup: Fridays, January 12 thru March 2, 1:15 to 2:15 p.m. Sign up here to volunteer as 5th Grade Science Fair support for ANY dates you are available.

Please contact Lauren Abraham if you have any questions. Thank you for considering!

Bryant Online Auction 2018

We need cool stuff for our online auction!

Bryant’s online auction will be March 5-12, 2018, as a stand-alone event. The auction committee is gearing up, and we’re starting by asking our Bryant parent community for any awesome items you might be able to donate.

What could you give? Do you know anyone who could give something cool? Here are examples of things we’d love to receive:

  • Seahawks, Sounders or Mariners tickets
  • Gift cards to local restaurants, bars and pubs
  • Vacation rentals
  • Unique experiences for kids and/or adults (tour a TV station, create and name a burger at a local cafe, etc.)
  • Parent parties (wine tasting, family street party, etc.) The sky’s the limit with this one! Be creative and bring us any/all of your ideas!
  • Shopping and retail gift cards
  • Movie and theater tickets

The list goes on! We’re asking you to be creative and help us fill the auction with things from our local community – all in support of our amazing school. The deadline for auction item submissions is Feb. 1, 2018.

Ready to donate? Fill out an auction form with your donation and contact information and mail it with the item to the school (or drop it off in the front office).

Questions? Get in touch with us at bryantonlineauction@gmail.com.

Thank you!

2017 Reflections art competition: Within Reach

 

 

Our best turn-out ever! Bryant Elementary students submitted sixty-five entries to Reflections, a national PTSA art competition. Recently, three local art professionals narrowed their selection to twelve entries to be sent along to the city-level competition. It was a very tough decision and our judges spent many hours studying all entries. Bryant’s twelve selections moving along to the city-level competition were notified last week! All sixty-five entries will be featured at Bryant’s Family Art Night later in the school year! 

All Reflections participants and patrons of the arts are invited to view the city-level finalists on display at the Seattle Center Armory (balcony). Art will be on display between December 1, 2017 and January 7, 2018. Bryant artists are features as part of 20 Seattle schools represented at this exhibit!

Thank you and your child for supporting the Arts at Bryant!
