Teacher Appreciation

During the first week of May, Bryant took time to express gratitude and appreciation for our dedicated teachers.  May is the perfect month to show our thanks for their hard work and commitment to our students’ education.  Our teachers were treated to a series of special gestures, including breakfast, Tropical Smoothies, an ice cream bar, lunches, personalized thank you cards and decorative potted plants.  Thank you for all who joined us in celebrating and recognizing the incredible work of our teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Assistant Principal, Karen Hertel, and Dr. Nardos King, FCPS Chief Equity Officer, participated in a “pinning” ceremony for James Wrobeh.  A former Bryant graduate, James, was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army.  Ms. Hertel and Dr. King had the privilege of pinning his rank onto him for the first time.  James recently completed the ROTC program at VA State University where he just completed his undergraduate degree.  James is a role model for all students on the importance of hard work and a great attitude and uses his story to inspire others.

We celebrated the completion of SOL Testing with a Wellness Day that recognized everyone’s hard work and the end of the testing period.  This special day was dedicated to well-being, relaxation, and FUN!  On Friday, May 26th—great way to kick off the start of summer—Bryant hosted a day that had activities and workshops for everyone.  Whether one preferred a calming yoga session, exploring creativity through coloring or jewelry making, taking a walk on the track, baking delicious chocolate chip cookies, or making stress less balls, there really was something for everyone.  Soft, cuddly alpacas visited our Bryant Campus and our speaker, CAM AWESOME, shared his journey of turning our setbacks into our comebacks, and encouraged us to do our best.  It was a picture perfect kind of day.

Bryant held a Parent Café addressing the signs, dangers, and abuse of Student Fentanyl Use.  If you were not able to make it, please visit this resource for additional information.

As we near the end of the school year, we want to encourage all students to finish strong and remain focused on their goals.  If you have any concerns or need support, our dedicated staff is here to help you.  We wish everyone a wonderful summer filled with good health and ready to return next school year with renewed energy.
