With all of our recent beautiful weather, there are many sweaters and jackets that have lost their owners! Please stop by the racks located outside the Lost & Found closet to claim your student's lost items. All items remaining right before Spring Break will be donated to needy families through our SPS district office. There are also many water bottles, lunch containers and miscellaneous items located in the Lost & Found closet. Thank you!

We need you to join our team of volunteers to make this year's Blast (Saturday, May 10) the best ever! Please consider one of the following open positions:
Blast Gym Games Chair - Work with the Blast Event Team to plan and coordinate the games and activities that will be played in the gym during the Blast. The role entails choosing/creating game options, developing signage and coordinating game set up/break down on the day of the Blast.
Blast Raffle Basket Team - We are looking for a few more people to join the Raffle Basket team. The group needs someone who likes to shop, can help with item collection/recording and can help wrapping baskets the Friday before the Blast.
Blast Face Painters - Are you an artist or just enjoying painting kids faces? We are looking for 8 parents to work an one-hour face painting shift at the Blast. Supplies will be provided and it will be great fun for the kids!

Have a special skill or small business that you'd like to promote? Please consider donating your time and services to this spring's Blast Auction. Whether you're a hobbyist or a lifelong professional, this is a great opportunity to share your expertise while supporting the Bryant community.

Did you know that involvement with the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking and verbal skills? More importantly, as my child says, "Art is fun and it makes me happy."
Arts Night is Thursday, April 24, from 6:30-8 p.m. Save the date and join us in supporting and celebrating the arts at Bryant school.
Participate in fun art processes with your children, take a family art walk through the halls, view the wonderful PTSA Reflections Art Show pieces from our young artists, and enjoy listening to our Bryant musicians and choir. Silkscreening T-shirts, a student gallery and more details to come in the weeks ahead.

The Bryant Running Club is open to all students, grades K-5. We offer a fun and non-competitive environment for students to learn about the sport of running.
The Spring Bryant Running Club meets from 3:35 to 4:15 p.m. after school Fridays for six weeks, beginning on April 25 and ending on June 6 (session dates are 4/25, 5/2, 5/9, 5/16, 5/23, 6/6).
Runners meet with volunteer coaches to stretch, discuss running technique and other running topics, and run laps at their own pace. Students earn tokens for laps they run during Running Club, as well as miles run outside of club meeting times.
The annual cost to participate in the BRC is $5. All students must have a signed waiver in order to participate. Those who submitted waivers and fees in the fall DO NOT need to do so again. New participants can drop off their waivers and fees in the main office or bring them to the first BRC meeting. If you're interested in volunteering, please fill out a WATCH screening form.

Greetings Bryant Families,
I trust by now you have all the updated Spring Session ASE class information. I want to thank you all for the great feedback I have received regarding new class offerings. Some of the classes filled up quickly while others still have room.
Hip Hop on Wednesdays with Chris D. was marked as tentative on your yellow flyer — that class is officially a “yes” so be sure and sign up soon. One-on-One Basketball also has openings for both Monday and Friday classes.
All classes — new and returning — are located on the ASE page where you can find information for individual class registration.
If your child is new to after school enrichment classes be sure to fill out the one-time Bryant registration form and provide the accompanying $25.00 annual registration fee.

If you have a child who will be attending the new Jane Addams Middle School (JAMS) next year or in the near future, you are invited to participate in an important curriculum decision.
At issue is the number of electives offered to incoming 6th graders at JAMS. One option is to offer two electives (including a foreign language option, as at Hamilton Middle School). The other option is to offer one elective (making technology and another course mandatory, as at Eckstein Middle School). This option usually means that foreign language study is not offered until 7th grade.
To add your opinion to this conversation with JAMS Principal Montgomery, please take a minute to complete our brief survey.
