K-3 Science Night: Weekly Experiment for Mar 14

There are still plenty of spaces open for this year’s K-3 Science Night! Parents of young scientists should reserve a spot for their child by emailing me the child’s name and grade. K-3 Science Night will be held on Thursday, March 30th in the Bryant gym/cafeteria from 6:30-7:30PM. The deadline for sign ups is Monday, March 27th.

This week’s featured demonstration will help you figure out how much air your lungs can hold. Don’t worry, you won’t have to dissect yourself to find out! All you’ll need is some plastic tubing, a water bottle, some water, and the instructions from this Science Kids website. There you can also find lots of other great ideas for simple experiments and demonstrations.

For more information on K-3 Science Night, or to find links to great resources for experiments, please visit the K-3 Science Night webpage.

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.
