What's Buzzin' at Bryant

Week of February 27, 2023

A Message from Mrs. Johnson

Hello Bryant families,

Hopefully everyone received a copy of their child's T2 report card last Friday. If you did not I would recommend you check your child's backpack. If you do not see it there touch base with the teacher for a duplicate copy.

We have about two more months left in the school year. I guarantee it is going to fly by so quickly. Please be sure to be in communication with your child's teacher about their academic and/or behavioral progress. Let's stay in communication with each other and end the year strong.

Lastly, March 2nd is Read Across America Day. On Read Across America Day, we celebrate the joy of learning and give thanks to the parents, caregivers, educators, librarians, authors, and community members who invest in our Nation's children. Thank you to everyone for your continued support and investment in ensuring our Little Bees thrive and excel.

As always, Bee Fantastic, Bee Great, Bee the Difference! Have a great week!


Join in on the fun for Read Across America spirit week!

Core Virtues for the month of March - Mercy

Mercy is the compassionate treatment of those in distress, especially when it is within one’s power to punish or harm them. Mercy doesn't always involve grand moments or gestures. But it always treats the position of influence, authority or power it acts from gently. Mercy makes room for others. Sometimes mercy means choosing not to complain to the restaurant manager when the service you received was lacking. That is the mercy of kindness. Sometimes mercy means not making it difficult for the person who offended you to apologize. That is the mercy of forgiveness. Sometimes mercy means correcting someone gently and not acting smug or vindictive. That is the mercy of grace. Sometimes mercy means helping a child escape poverty. That is the mercy of compassion. We will all need to show and be shown mercy in our lives. Make room in your heart for someone else. Extend mercy to someone this week.
