Hello Bryant families,

Who do you look toward to gain wisdom?

Thank you so much to Ms. Reed and her FABULOUS 1ST GRADERS for sharing with us who they look up to for inspiration and wisdom.

Core Virtue for the month of November - STEWARDSHIP

Stewardship is basically the careful, responsible management of something that has been entrusted to your care. Everything you have on this earth – time, talent, treasure, money, opportunity, you name it – has been entrusted to you. We have all been entrusted with something in our lives, and it is our job to identify that thing or those things and then not just protect them but also manage them.
