Bryant Garden News

New Bryant Garden
New Bryant Garden

Thanks to former B/P student Will Jibson, his family, and the volunteers who built our new Bryant garden! Will led this project as a part of his Eagle Scout requirements. Mrs. Klein planted leafy greens for the fall and all kindergartners taste-tested curly kale, chard, and leaf lettuce.

Due to frost, we are putting the garden to bed for the winter. We are already thinking about the spring planting and Mr. Kinasz and Mrs. Klein are planning school-wide vermicomposting.


Movie Night Kudos

We hope you all enjoyed getting "Frozen" last Friday at Movie Night at Bryant. Through concession sales, we raised $700 for our schools - way to go! Thank you to coordinators Kathy Owens and Dana Stoica; Bob Treat for securing donated pizzas from Papa John's; and the many volunteers that helped make the event a success.
