Bryant Blizzard News

Welcome back!

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a relaxing winter break and that you are rejuvenated for the excitement that the New Year brings. We are about to begin the January “Freeze”, with temperatures well below zero. Please remember to keep your child dressed for the outdoors with warm jackets, hats, mittens, snow pants and boots. If you are in need of winter clothing for your child, please let the office, know and we will assist you as we have had generous donations from community organizations and our PTO this fall. We will do everything we can to continue to have outdoor recess as long as it is safe because it is important for our students to be able to run and play during the day.

We use the NOAA wind chill chart as a reference, pictured below and can be found anytime at:

We will continue to have outdoor recess before and during lunch when the temperatures and wind speed are in the light blue area. If you have any questions, please call the office.

Thank you to Ms. Putzke, the classroom teachers and the students for their work in organizing and performing in the Winter Sing-Along on December 15th. It was a great show and we had large turnouts of spectators for both performances!

We are currently administering the second round of AIMS, MAP and/or PALS assessments (depending on their grade level) to all of our students in reading and math during the next two weeks. These assessments give us data points to check on the progress of each individual student at their grade-level in both math and reading. These results will be shared with you at conferences as well as additional performance in the classroom. Conferences are coming up February 25th and March 1st.

Best wishes in the New Year!
