What is CREW Night?

***RSVP by Wednesday, January 16, 2019***

For families with scholars grades K-5, mark your calendar for Thursday, January 24 (5:30-7:30pm) for our next CREW Night with a focus on math!


While scholars participate in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) assembly, Bryan Road staff members will guide families in learning more about their child's current level of performance and provide resources and ways for you to support your child at home. We will provide hands on activities for you to use with your child at home and will help you set a learning goal for your scholar at the end of the event.


CREW Night is a great time to build relationships with other Bryan Road families and staff members! This is a FREE event and dinner and childcare (for all ages) are both provided!

A schedule is provided below for you to view!


5:30 Dinner (baked potato bar, salad, beverage, & brownie)

6:10 Drop off child(ren) at assigned locations

6:15-7:30 CREW Night (read details above for description)


Childcare Details


  • Children Ages 5+ Winter Wonder Lab STEM assembly


This event will have your kids gasping and laughing at the Mad Scientist’s exciting science experiments. Through a mixture of science and magic the children will see a playing card vanish only to reappear again! Watch as our special snowman is de-frosted right before their eyes! See an Insta-Snow explosion! The Mad Scientist will introduce the audience to a mysterious rock that turns out to be dry ice. Using the dry ice, the Mad Scientist will make bubbling potions, popping corks, shivering quarters and clouds of fog. All will have a wonderful time of giddy goodness and fun!



  • Children 4 years of age and younger will enjoy playing together in our pre-k classrooms.
