Family Movie Night: Friday, October 19

Friday, October 19
Doors open at 6pm, Movie starts at 6:30pm
Movie is FREE, but bring cash for concessions!

All Bryant families are invited to join us for a movie screening in the Bryant cafeteria. We can’t post the name of the movie online, but let’s just say you’ll be in the company of monsters! Bring a clean blanket for kids to sit on the floor, and dress up as your cuddliest monster (if you want!). We’ll have hot dogs, popcorn, baked goods and candy for sale to support next year’s 5th Grade Islandwood experience. Kids do need an adult to attend with them. There will also be a door prize drawing, courtesy of the Annual Campaign. 

Fourth graders and parents are encouraged to sign up for bringing goodies and working shifts the night of the movie.  Check out the Sign Up Genius!

New Bryant Parent Welcome/Volunteer Info Session

The Bryant School community warmly welcomes you to explore rewarding volunteer opportunities. Learn when and how to be involved in your student’s classroom. The opportunities are many: reading groups, science, computer, class parties and project prep. Seattle Public Schools new online volunteer application for school volunteers will also be discussed and questions answered.

Beyond the classroom, the Bryant PTSA has many volunteer opportunities to fit the busiest of parent schedules. Parent involvement benefits every student in our school. Room parents are strongly encouraged to attend.

There are two sessions to choose from:
Monday, October 1 from 8-9 a.m. in Bryant LASER


Thursday, October 4 from 6-7 p.m. in the Bryant Library
This evening session will be followed by a Back to Schoo Mixer at Ravenna Brewing Co, where PTSA will supply some light noshes.

The session presenters will be Volunteer Coordinator, Ann Marie Patterson, and PTSA Co-Volunteer Coordinator, Tammy Shorr. If you have any questions, contact Ann Marie Patterson by email or at (206) 252-5220.

Thank you!

Because of your prompt payment, we have collected all the fees needed to give our kids and teachers the learning supplies for the school year.

We purchased over $21,000 in supplies for the start of the school year and will purchase an additional $7,000 over the next 10 months. With the amazing efforts of volunteers who came in before the start of school, we delivered more than 5 pallets of supplies to homeroom classrooms and specialty rooms like the library, gym, and music.

You helped purchase 12,182 pencils, 3,492 glue sticks, 1,220 pink erasers, 940 white board markers, 585 boxes of Kleenex, 572 sharpies and so much more for our kids.

You also raised $3,900 for a Seattle school in need. The school, without a PTSA, has a substantial free and reduced lunch population of 73% and is grateful for this unexpected help. Once they receive the donation and have the opportunity to put it to good use, we will send out an update on how you helped this school and its kids to have a better school year.  You still have an opportunity to donate, please visit our payment website to support Seattle students in need.
