It’s what we’ve all been waiting for… Bryant’s Ice Cream Social will be Friday, 6:30-8pm. Celebrate your first week back at Bryant (or if you’re a Kindergartener, get a head-start on friend-making). Catch up with all the old buddies as well as make new friends. One bowl for $3 or two bowls for $5 supports the 4th Graders as they start raising funds for 5th Grade camp. Enter through the set of three doors on the southwest side of the building adjacent to the Bryant “Hands On Garden.”
Look for colored signs on the playground the first few days of school marking where your classroom lines up. That will also be where you should meet your student at the end of the day. And remember, school gets out early every Wednesday (except the first day for 1st-5th) at 1:10pm!
Then, once you see them off on that first day, join us in the lunchroom Wed, Sept 6 and Mon, Sept 11 from 8-9am for our First Day Welcome with breakfast treat and rub shoulders with school principals and PTSA leaders to see how you can engage with Bryant this year.
