What's Buzzin' at Bryant
Week of September 5, 2022
A Message from Mrs. Johnson
Hello Bryant families,
We are already in our 5th week of school. Time is going by so fast. Before you know it, winter break will be at our doorstep.
As we navigate through this year, it is important that we always work collaboratively together to ensure our students achieve and thrive at the highest levels possible. In two weeks, the first round of student progress reports will be going home. If you have questions regarding your child's school performance, communicate with the classroom teacher. Work together! We are here to support our students and to support you.
IT'S HOT!!!!!!! In the bulletin below, I have included information regarding RUSDs policies related to excessive heat. Please help us by ensuring your child has a water bottle and is wearing light, breathable fabrics. Thank you for your support.
As a reminder, breakfast is served in the morning at 7:40 am and the school bell rings promptly at 8:10 am. If you child would like to have breakfast in the morning, please ensure they arrive at school in enough time to sit and eat prior to the 8:10 bell. Lastly, we are experiencing a high volume of student tardies. In keeping with our Core Virtue of "responsibility", being timely is a life skill students must learn. It is important that students be at school, on time, ready to learn by 8:10 am. Thank you so much for your help with ensuring out Little Bees are at school on time everyday!
As always, Bee Fantastic, Bee Great, Bee the Difference! Have a great week!
Thank you so much to our community partners!
Get your Bee Happy Gram!
Show your school spirit!
Beating the HEAT!

Showing a little respect and being responsible goes a long way!
CELEBRATING BIRTHDAYS IN THE CLASSROOM
Students love to celebrate birthdays at school, as it is a memorable time to share with teachers and friends. Given the current demands of the curriculum, we cannot have birthday parties for students. We are asking all parents to follow these simple guidelines when planning for your child’s birthday celebration at school. The Bryant staff feels strongly that by following these guidelines, we are promoting a healthy lifestyle, being considerate of those with health concerns related to food (allergies, diabetes, obesity, etc.), and maximizing student learning!
Contribute a book to the Bryant School library through the Birthday Book Program (a sticker will be placed in the book stating it was donated on behalf of your child for his/her birthday.
Bring in non-food items for classmates such as pencils, erasers, bookmarks, etc. The teacher will help your child distribute them to classmates at a time during the school day that does not interfere with instruction.
Volunteer in your child’s class.
Make a donation to your child’s school in honor of your child’s birthday.
Provide goodie bags for classmates which can be distributed and taken home at the end of the day.
Donate an educational game or book for your child’s classroom.
Students are no longer allowed to bring in food items for birthday celebrations. We appreciate your help with this matter!
