Spread the word to friends and family and let's SHOW OUR SUPPORT for Bryant/Pattengill! See the attached flyer for store hours and location.

If you have any Parent Lending Library books, please return them to school. The books can be dropped off in the office or returned to your child's teacher.
The Parent Lending Library is a free service to Bryant/Pattengill parents. You may select 2-3 books at your child's reading level. Your student can practice reading the books, then return them the following week and get more books.
The Parent Lending Library is open on Tuesdays in Bryant's main lobby, from 3:40-5:00PM. You can use your child's Raz Kids reading level or ask your child's teacher for their reading level to choose the books. Thank you for supporting your child to be successful at home and school!
Have you heard the news? Rec & Ed Flag Football has partnered with NFL FLAG to enhance our flag football program this spring. The league is now open to boys and girls in grades K-8. All participants will now receive a reversible jersey with an NFL logo on it, as well as their own flag belt.
Contact Sean at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't miss out on the fun, sign up today!
Assistance is needed on Thursday, Feb. 12 from 6:00-7:30pm at Bryant for the upcoming Round-Up.
We are looking for volunteers to assist with parent sign-in, snacks, scavenger hunt, and more. Contact Tiffany Marra at email@example.com if interested.
Please help us welcome new prospective families to the Bryant/Pattengill family!
The marquee sign in front of Bryant needs to be changed every week or so to promote upcoming events throughout the school year. This takes 30 minutes a week at most and is a great way to volunteer at your child's school! Interested? Contact Carmen Atkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-330-9967.

See the attached flyer for a schedule of the day's events, and please plan to visit with your child at school!
