Dear Bryant Families,

How is it October already? It seems like we just started school and already we over a month in. It was an absolute pleasure to have our 3rd grade students perform at our board work session. It was an absolute hit and really did showcase the amazing work done by our students each day. Thank you so much to Mrs. Albus, Mrs. Franzen, Mrs. Elton, Mrs. Preshinger, Mr. Connor and Mrs. Fisher for helping make this run so smoothly. I also appreciate the parents who were in attendance (either in person or virtually) for the board work session. It means a lot to our staff and students to have such supportive people in our school community! Thank you for sharing your children with us. We truly do enjoy every moment with them!

Recess and Weather Changes

With the weather changing (even every hour), it is important students come prepared for anything. We will go outside for recess until it is below zero or the air quality is poor. Please be sure to send hats, gloves, coats, etc. with your students each day. Please also be sure to put names on all items as we are starting to collect quite a few items in our lost and found. Below is a picture of the recess policy from the student handbook. Thank you!

Our 5th graders will be on their Water Watchers field trip on Thursday, October 7th for the majority of the day.
