BRYAN ROAD ELEMENTARY is hosting a fundraiser, and our goal is to raise $14,000 for SCHOOL EVENTS AND CLASSROOM SUPPLIES AND RESOURCES!

In just a couple weeks from now, family and friends will support our school by giving pledges towards the number of laps your student will run on the day of the Fun Run.

We’ve asked the fundraising experts at Booster to power our program, making our fundraising simpler, more profitable, and more fun.

Community of Hope Ministries has run a highly successful tutoring based After School Program since 2004. The after school program is for 1st-5th grade students who are below grade level in math and reading, and come from families that have financial challenges to provide for tutoring. While providing transportation, they partner with eight Garner area schools to identify students for the program. Students in the After School Program are engaged in hands on learning. Each day, students are retaught concepts through fun activities. Their goal is to help students understand the concepts in a fun and exciting way. While there typically is time for students to start on their homework, they are not a homework program. They focus on reteaching concepts so that the students can master them and be able to complete their work on their own.​If you would like for your child to be considered for this program, please contact our amazing counselor, Cody Scrufari, at

Box Tops for Education

Box Tops for Education clips can be found on hundreds of products you purchase. General Mills pays our school .10 for every Box Top clip we turn in.

  • NO need to clip box tops anymore and send them into the school
  • This year, BOX TOPS is going DIGITAL! Simply download the new and improved app (Box Tops for Education App, in the app store, free), register, select Bryan Road (id#9681931).
  • Open it up and take a picture of your receipt. The app will automatically recognize Box Tops products and immediately add them to our school earnings! Scan your receipts within 14 days of purchase.

Here Comes the BUS!

Here Comes the Bus translates GPS data into an easy to use customizable map that works on a computer, tablet or smartphone. The app allows you to see where the bus is and how close it is to your stop.

Get started with Here Comes the Bus. You will need the district code and your student’s ID number to sign up. The WCPSS school code is 67500. For your smartphone or tablet, download the Here Comes the Bus app from the App Store or Google Play.

When entering your student’s last name on the app, if there is a hyphen in the name, make sure you include it. Only enter the first 18 characters of your student’s last name. If your name is, "Yellow-School Bus Wake", you will enter "Yellow-School Bus" in the last name field.

Once activated, you can customize or edit features, including how the app will communicate with you and the size of the notification radius.
