Dear Bryant Families,
What an AMAZING week to be a part of the Bryant Family! It was so great to see all of our kiddos and welcome everyone into the building for the start of another year! We have a few reminders in this newsletter, so please be sure to read all parts. If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out! Thank you and have a great long weekend!
We do not have classes on Monday, September 6th, 2021! We will see you at 8:00 A.M. on Tuesday, September 7th, 2021
We will begin benchmark testing for all students (K-5th grade) next week. This first testing window is to assess where students are at in their learning and to create smaller groupings of students targeted at the skills they need. The testing window will be September 7th-10th with make-up testing the following week.
Below is a picture of the menu for the month of September. As a reminder, all students will receive a breakfast, snack and lunch for free. You always have the option of sending a lunch with your child if they do not like what is on the menu.
Free Meals for All Children
Please see the attached flyer to access free meals for all children age 1-18. It is a different process this year so please be sure to read it carefully. If you have any questions, please contact the Food Service Department for the Helena School District.
Personal Toys, Cards, Stuffed Animals, etc.
We have seen an increase in toys and other personal items on the playground. We ask that you do not send these items with your students. Often times items can be lost, stolen or broken when brought to school and it causes more heartache than joy in the end. Please check backpacks for these items and remind students they are not to be brought to school. Thank you for your cooperation!
Students are not to have cell phones out for any reason during the school day. They may have them for before and after school but they are to be turned off and not in use during the day. If a phone is seen, we will collect the phone and ask you to pick it up in the main office. If a student needs to get ahold of you, they can use our student phone in the office.
Supervision on the Playground
It is extremely important to remember that we do not have playground supervision until 8:00 A.M. each morning. Please DO NOT drop your students off before 8:00 A.M. If you have any questions on this, please contact me.
Please remember to send your student in a mask each day while we are in a mask mandate. We will provide a mask for any student who does not have one but wanted to send the reminder out.
Lewis and Clark Book Mobile
Exciting news! The Lewis and Clark Library Book Mobile will be making stops at Bryant every other week! Please be sure to swing by the book mobile and check out some books!
