Hello Bryant families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

We are nearing the end to Trimester 1. It has been an awesome first few months of school. Thank you to everyone for the support you offer to Bryant teachers but most of all to your children. It helps to make our job a little easier when we have such great collaborative partners.

Your child's teacher will be sending out information to schedule a conference. You will have the option to hold your conference viturally or in-person. Please be sure to respond to your child's teacher as soon as notifications go out. More info will be forthcoming.

As always, Bee Fantastic, Bee Great, Bee the Difference! Have a great week!
