Mrs. Schreck Needs Help with Pattengill's Book Fair: Mrs. Schreck is looking for a parent who will come alongside her this year to help with Pattengill's Book Fair. While she will shoulder most of the work, being in two buildings is making it a bit more challenging this year. If you have time to touch base with her once a week between now and the Book Fair, can be present to help with volunteers on Tuesday, Dec. 6 during the day, and can be at most of the Family Night event on Thursday, Dec. 8, please send her an email at schreck@aaps.k12.mi.us. Thank you in advance!


Many Thanks from Pattengill Library: Mrs. Schreck is extremely grateful to all the parent volunteers who have been assisting her with the classes in the library. If you have time and have not volunteered yet, Mrs. Bailey's class on Wednesdays from 8:50-9:50am and Ms. Hubbard's class on Fridays from 1:20-2:10pm still need assistance. Thank you!


Box Tops Success: Thank you to all who turned in their Box Tops from the summer and this fall. The B/P PTO will be receiving $541.70. Please keep collecting and stay tuned for more information as to when the next turn-in will be. Many Thanks!

Reminders:
Bryant Annual Coin Drive — A Time To Give: During the Thanksgiving holiday

season, please take a moment to pause and reflect on all for which you are thankful, as well as remembering families who are less fortunate. Don Horning and the M-Den staff will be teaming up with us again this year to purchase turkey dinners and dessert for Bryant families in need. To help offset the cost, our school will host a coin drive from Nov. 2-18. You may send in spare change with your student, who can then turn it into their teacher or front office. Thank you!
