What's Buzzin' at Bryant

Week of December 5, 2022

A Message from Mrs. Johnson

Hello Bryant families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful and restful weekend.

We have two weeks before we go off for our two week holiday break. This year, we will be returning to school on January 2, 2022. That is correct ..... January 2nd. Please be sure to plan accordingly if you will be traveling for the holidays. The school calendar was shared at the beginning of the school year. If you are anything like me and do not plan that far in advance, you probably overlooked the date.

The first half the the school year has been amazing and I'm certain the second half will be even better! Thank you so much for your continued support.

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

Queen Bee of Attendance!

Congratulations to Mrs. Broadnax and her super students for having the best attendance two weeks in a row. Thank you parents for ensuring your children are at school on time everyday ready to learn. Keep up the great work!

We love to use our imaginations!

Thank you so much to Mr. B, MTSS Counselor, for creating an "Imagination Station" for our students. Students can create, play, and be whomever they want to be. Dream Big! The sky is the limit.

Order your yearbook and pay online!

It's finally here! There is an option to order your yearbook and pay for it online. Please use your phone to scan the QR code on the flyer below and you will be directed to Bryant's site to order. You may also continue to submit your order form and cash payment in the front office. We have only ordered a certain number of books so don't miss out.

Peppermint is back!

Bryant students look foward to this time of the year. One of the reasons is they all love for looking for our school scout elf, Ms. Peppermint. Parents, Santa has eyes everywhere! Perppermint is watching them even when they are at school.
