Tuesday - Field Trip to Pioneer for Little Mermaid Play

All classes at Bryant will be attending this field trip! We will be back at school for lunch. I'm allowed only one chaperone due to seating limitations. Contact me if you are interested. The chaperone has to drive on his/her own, and pay the $6 ticket price.

Rescheduled! Wednesday - Earth Day of Service

Due to the winter-like weather last Wednesday, Day of Service is now on April 29th.

Our class will be outside for Day of Service on the West Playground from 9:45-10:30. You are welcome to join us then, but assistance is also welcome throughout the day.

If you are interested in supporting these efforts at Bryant, please contact parent coordinator Adam Jurevicius at:

Shout Outs!

Special thanks last week to our field trip chaperones - Leo's mom and dad, and Eric's mom. The Hands-On Museum was great fun!

Also, thanks to Neila, Ben and Sydney's moms for folding/stapling passports for International Night.

And continued thanks for the snacks and support you have all been providing throughout the school year! We appreciate it!

How To Books - update

Most students are finished, or nearly finished with their "How To" books. They are very anxious to bring them home to share, but we will be reading them with other Bryant students first! Your children have worked hard to create a book with an introduction, steps to do or make something, and an About the Author page.

Field Trip to Botanical Gardens - May 15

On Friday, May 15 our class will visit the U of M Botanical Gardens. Our class needs 2 or 3 chaperones to make this trip a success. We will leave at about 9:30 and likely return at about 12:30 or 1:00. Look for a permission slip coming home soon.

International Festival

We had a wonderful time on Thursday during International Festival! Most classrooms still have their displays up outside their rooms, so feel free to visit and check them out if you were not able to attend.

Volunteer During Centers!

This year we've been fortunate to have many U of M students either interning or volunteering in our classroom. Soon our college students will be finishing their semester and moving on. We welcome help during guided reading and centers if you are available. Monday and Tuesday at 9:50, Wednesday at 10:00 and Thursday at 10:50.
