Bryant April Happenings

Bryant April Happenings

As we approach the end of the school year, we have plenty of exciting news to share with you in this month's newsletter.

Academic achievements continue to be a highlight of Bryant HS.  Many of our students have been recognized for their outstanding hard work and dedication to their studies. Bryant celebrated 3rd quarter achievement with ice cream and certificates.   

Award Assembly

In addition to academic excellence, some of our students have been actively involved in "reading" community service projects. Jordan McDowell traveled to Bucknell Elementary school and read to the kindergarteners.  Ms. Leonard's Child Development class visited our onsite day care center and read to the 3-year-old classroom.  Bryant loves seeing our students' efforts in making a positive impact on our community.  




Recently, our school hosted a Job/Career Fair for our students.  The event featured a keynote speaker, 60 employers from various industries, and Q & A panel.  Our students dressed for the occasion and engaged with the employers to learn about different career paths and opportunities available to them.  They had the chance to ask questions, network with professionals, and gain insight into the job market. It was truly an outstanding experience for our Bryant community. To view more pictures from our Fair, please visit Career Fair

Did you know that April was National Autism Month?  Students were given blue bracelets to raise awareness about autism and promote acceptance and understanding. This month of observation celebrates the unique strengths and abilities of these individuals and promotes inclusion and acceptance in our communities.  


Mother's Day



At Bryant, we have a special teen parenting program that embraces the philosophy of being a student and parent.  This program is called Project Opportunity and has been educating young parents for 25 plus years.  Our group of young mothers celebrated an early Mother's Day event by going out for a special outing that involved painting and lunch. Our teen mothers show incredible strength and dedication in raising their children and we want to honor and support them on this special day, and every day, as they continue to navigate the joys and challenges of motherhood.  


Our Director of Student Services, Pipi Harrison, received the South Fairfax Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Community Service Award.  This recognition is a reflection of the generous South Fairfax Community and the teamwork of her School Counseling Department. Here at Bryant, we always want to make sure basic necessities of our students are being met, so they can be engaged and successful learners. Please reach out to your student's school counselor or our Family Liaison for additional resources.

Bryant also recognized Bryant's Administrative Assistants who work behind the scenes and keep our school running smoothly.  These amazing professionals are the backbone of our teams and we want to thank them for everything they do!

Testing Calendar

During the month of May, Bryant will be conducting multiple testing for our students. We understand that testing can be a stressful time for students, but it is an important part of our educational system.  Please reference the Testing Calendar

As always, we encourage our parents to stay involved in their child's education and to communicate with us about any questions or concerns you may have.  We look forward to finishing the year BRYANT STRONG!
