January's Readers of the Month

Monday, 12 January 2015 16:53

January's featured readers are William and Daniel B!

2015 is off to a super start, and our readers can stay warm inside with a new book, or head to the movies to see their favorite stories on screen (The Hobbit or Paddington, anyone?). This month's readers would like to see thoughtful adaptations of Ruth Stiles Gannett's My Father's Dragon and Scott Westerfield's Leviathan.

Check out William and Daniel's "Read" poster in the library, and stay tuned in the spring for opportunities to feature your reader next year while supporting Bryant and the library.

Winter ASE session begins

Christine Haas, ASE Coordinator

Happy New Year! I hope this finds you well and rested.

January 5th begins the start of a new session for ASE. If you missed the deadline but would still like to enroll your child in a class, contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . There are some classes that can still take students on a case-by-case basis.

Please note the location of your child's class. These are posted on the website as well as in the front lobby of the school. Some have changed as there was quite a bit of last-minute shuffling to do in order to accommodate each class.

I hope your students enjoy the new session and as always, if you have any questions or convents This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .


From the District: Student Safety

Wednesday, 07 January 2015 12:50

Dear Seattle Public School parents and guardians,

This morning Shoreline School District to our north locked down all schools after a man with a rifle made threats outside a Shoreline school. Seattle Public Schools was in immediate contact with King County Sheriff and the sheriff department advised us that the threat did not extend into our school district. Based on this information, we did not shelter-in-place or lock down any of our schools. We continued to monitor the situation throughout the morning in case anything changed.

The safety and security of our students is our top priority. Whenever a threat such as a suspect with a gun near a school exists, our Safety and Security department works quickly with police to take appropriate action to protect our students. The police department will advise the district on a course of action (shelter-in-place or lockdown, for example) and the distance from the crime scene affected. The district then immediately takes action with all schools within the police department's determined perimeter, communicating those actions to other school principals and affected school families as soon as possible after seeing to the safety of the students.

For more information on our Safety and Security department, please feel free to visit http://bit.ly/SPSSafetySecurity.

PTSA Board votes to fund tech

Tuesday, 16 December 2014 13:16

At the December meeting the PTSA Board voted to fund a grant of no more than $15,000 to Bryant Elementary to help pay for the Technology Coordinator position for the second half of the 2014-15 school year. The position will be a .8-time position, with Bryant paying for.25 and the PTSA's grant covering the remaining .55 of the position. The PTSA's portion comes from the unallcoated funds portion of the 2014-15 budget. Principal Dan Sanger will be posting the position through the district in the coming weeks.

Watch for notices in February and March to take part in budget discussions for the 2015-16 school year and voice your opinion on how we should prioritize and fund programs like technology, reading, and the arts at Bryant.

Thank you to Patricia Parker who helped to demonstrate the value of a technology program, allowed us to gain support from teachers and parents, and who will continue to run the pilot tech program for the remainder of the semester.
