Stop By The Fall PTO General Meeting Next Tuesday: The B/P Parent-Teacher Organization is your PTO, so come find out how you can get involved with your child's school, and share any suggestions or questions you may have. Parents meet while children enjoy creating "make-and-take" art with our very own Bryant and Pattengill Art teachers, Mrs. Sheppard and Mrs. Hendrick in the art room! There will also be a presentation given by Ms. Metler and Mr. Gutierrez about the importance of volunteering, involvement, and how native English speaking families can be of help and support to our ELL (English Language Learner) families and help our community continue to grow. So plan to join us on Tuesday, October 18, 6:30-7:30pm at Bryant (Media Center).
