Bryantville Elementary School
June 18, 2021
A Message From Dr. Galligan and Mrs. Arons
As co-leaders of this building, we want to take a moment to say thank you to our wonderful Bryantville families for all you have done for this building. As you may know, we are both moving on from these positions at the close of this academic year. However, we are taking with us our many wonderful memories of our students, staff, and families.
Throughout our time here, we’ve had the opportunity to watch your children ask and solve problems about the world around them, write captivating stories, and create art and music. We’ve watched them form a community, take care of one another, and by doing so--live our Bryantville BEST Promise. We are so grateful for every opportunity we’ve had to work with and learn from each of our students.
Bryantville Elementary School is an amazing place to teach and work because of our fantastic families, staff, and students. We hope that you have a healthy and restful summer as well as a 2021-2022 school year full of continued growth and learning.
We have truly appreciated the opportunity to partner with all of our families.
Dr. Galligan and Mrs. Arons

Pembroke Titans Against Drugs-6th grade Youth Pledge
Pembroke Titans Against Drugs (PTAD) conducted a 6th-grade youth pledge event on Friday, June 11th. The PTAD Youth Pledge Program is a substance abuse prevention awareness program created to increase awareness of the dangers of substance abuse and unhealthy decision-making in the community’s youth.
At the conclusion of the presentation, students were presented with a PTAD Youth Pledge T-shirt and a Pledge Card. The students are then encouraged to take the pledge card home to think about what they have learned and decide whether or not they would like to make this promise. If they decide to make this promise to lead a healthy, substance-free life, they will sign their pledge card and keep it with them as a reminder of the pledge they took.
As the year comes to a close, teachers will begin collecting curricular materials including technology. As directed by their teacher, students should return their computers, IPADs, and charging devices to school where they will be inventoried.
