What's Buzzin' at Bryant
Week of December 18, 2023
A Message From Mrs. Johnson
Hello Parents! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
Thank you to everyone who came out to our Holiday Family Dance. We had a wonderful turn out and everyone had a great time. I want to send a great big shout out to our PTO for planning such a wonderful event.
It's our last week befor a two week winter break. Winter break will begin December 25, 2023. Students will return to school January 9, 2024. Our last day of instruction will be on the 22nd and we want to see all of our little bees at school.
For the past 30 years, Bryant has had a tradition of taking a school-wide field trip to the movies (see info below). Thank you to everyone who has asked however, we are fully staffed and parent volunteers are not needed. If you have not already done so, please be sure to turn in your child's permission slip. It is required for your child to attend. Also, it is important that your child arrive to school on time. Arriving late may compromise your child's ability to attend if they miss the bus. There will be no parent drop off to the movie theater.
During the break, enjoy your time with your family. We look forward to seeing everyone on January 9th. As always, thank you for unwavering support. Have a great week!
Bryant Movie Day is Here!
Every year, for the past 30 years, Bryant has established the tradition of taking the entire student body on a school wide movie trip on the last Friday before leaving for Winter Break (December 22, 2023). This is a way for us to build community as a school and have a little fun. Two screening rooms have been reserved just for us. In addition to the movie, each student will receive popcorn, candy, and a soft drink.
This year, we will be viewing the new Wonka movie. I have included the trailor for parents to view. Permission slips will be going home with students on Monday. Every child is required to return their permission slip no later than December 20th to attend the trip. Parent volunteers are not needed. There will be plenty of support and supervision to address the needs of all of our students. In the event a parent elects not to have their child attend or if a student arrives late and misses the bus, a staff member will be on site to ensure instruction continues.
We are so excited to be able to continue this long standing Bryant tradition. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions.

The Core Virtue for the month of December - Courage
Generosity is giving with an open hand and an open heart. Hospitality is the friendly reception of guests or strangers into one's inner circle. As we continue through the holiday season and beyond, let's find a way to be more generous and hospitable to others.
This month, as part of our social-emotional development discussions, classes will discuss what it means and what it looks like to show gratitude. Please join us by talking with your child about showing gratitude and appreciation to others.
Thank you to Mr. Onishi and his students for teaching us how to have courage!
