Bryant Open House for Prospective Families

Bryant Elementary WELCOMES Prospective Families – 2024!

Bryant PTSA and staff welcome you to our community and hope you can attend an INFORMATIONAL NIGHT PROGRAM for you to explore Bryant as a potential school for your Kindergarten-5th grade student in the 2024-2025 academic year.

Although there are some new families with incoming students in grades 1-5 next year very much of this Open House night is biased towards the usual annual enrollment of about 100 kinderkids. However, we expect to have a tour & Q & A focused for families sending an older student.

Some classrooms will be open (grades 1-5, teachers not present) as we consider entering Bryant a six-year experience, K through grade 5.                                       K teachers ARE present.

  • When: Thursday January 18th, 2024 at 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
  • Where: Bryant library – right on main floor as you enter the building
  • Who: YOU, Bryant PTSA members, administrator, K teachers, LASER representative (on-site after-school childcare)
  • What: Hear about our school, kindergarten, PTSA programs, LASER daycare, and more…
    • visit classrooms K-5, meet Kindergarten teachers.
  • Why: we want you to appreciate Bryant as much as we do!!! 😊

We plan for a brief introductory program providing an overview of Bryant. Then place kinder-parents in random groups of 8-12 led by a current Bryant parent volunteer to escort you throughout the building stopping in each kindergarten room with K teachers waiting for you.😉

You will have the opportunity to speak with, listen to and ask questions of the K teachers.

Please note this is an adult-only program – the conversations, topics and explanations are all aimed at adults. – Thank you for understanding.

Bryant’s well-known NEW FAMILY NIGHT directed towards students and families enrolled at Bryant occurs in June 2024. It is full-family focused (children encouraged to attend).

You are welcome to help us prepare for your visit by emailing Kevin G. Gallagher, event manager  and former kindergarten teacher, at regarding Thursday January 18th attendance. Ask any questions of him that may help you prepare for this event.

It is not required to do so, but helps us in planning.

Hope to see you there!
