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.
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.

Parents and guardians, this is your opportunity to meet with their kids’ teachers and get an overview of the curriculum for the year. Some grade levels will present as a team this night, discussing their combined goals. K-4th Grade Curriculum night 2018 is on Thursday, Sept 27. We’ll have a map available at the entrance to help you find your way to your classrooms.
Child care available starting at 6pm.
This is an parent/guardian-only event. If you need child care, LASER will be open starting at 6pm for $15/child (over 5 years old). You don’t need to be currently enrolled in LASER to use this service. Sign up for Curriculum Night care now.
Family Arts Night is a favorite event at Bryant: each April, students get to showcase their skills in a series of art projects including a T-shirt screen-printing station where students can screen the event logo on their own T-shirt. We are looking for 2 co-leaders for this event as well. Volunteers helping to organize these events will have the support and mentorship of the Bryant Arts Committee.
Please contact Kristin Zwiers with your interest!
All meetings are at 7pm in the Bryant Library unless otherwise noted. (Dates in bold are General Meetings)
