Last Day of School Picnic

On Friday June 12, many Bryant classrooms will be celebrating the end of the school year with a cookout. Parents and siblings are welcome to join the fun, starting at 10:00am. Our class was assigned to bring a bag of ice or a bag of hotdog buns. There was also a sign-up sent out via email if you can bring a grill or help grill. Thanks to the families who sent in slips and will donate ice or hotdog buns. We could use several more bags of hot dog buns if anyone is still interested in bringing an item for Friday.

Just a Few Days to Go!

I can hardly believe the final week of school has arrived! I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know your children and working with them this school year. We have learned so much from one another. They will make terrific second graders! Have a safe, relaxing and fun summer!

Start Planning for Summer Learning

Your first graders have accomplished so much this year! Avoid summer learning loss by planning for your child to read daily, write frequently, and set aside a few days each week for summer work. This week, look for a summer work packet and for math journals to come home. Unfinished "Math Boxes" pages in the journals are great for practice and review. We had a visit recently from the Ann Arbor District Library. They have a summer reading game that your student can play online or on paper. Kids get a free book after reaching their goal. Bryant Library is also offering summer check out, see below.

Writer's Workshop

This week we will finish All About books, work on School Memory books and try out some poetry. Look for some writing samples to come home that showcase how far your child's writing has come since September. Most importantly, your first grader will finally bring home his/her How To and All About books!
