 Notes From The Bryant Office:  The Bryant office is requesting donations of new girls underwear sizes 4-12 for when a change is necessary and the student does not have an extra pair in their backpack. We have plenty of boys, thank you for your kindness.


Scrip Orders Will Be Delivered To Students On Thursday: Scrip Orders will be delivered to the students on Thursday, Dec. 10 so parents please look for your order in your child’s backpack if you haven’t already received them.  Questions, contact Shannon Kotre, sskotre@hotmail.com

Come To Lunch With The Loved Ones: Please join your child for Lunch With The Loved Ones on Thurs, Dec. 17th for Pattengill and Fri, Dec 18th for Bryant.   This is a time when an older sibling (an adult over 18 years old), parent, family member, or loved one is invited to eat lunch with their student. Please support this event by simply coming to the school and dining with your child during his/her scheduled lunch period.

Bryant P.E. Update- Check Your Child’s Folders For Activity Calendars: Hi Everyone! December activity calendars are coming home with students.  Stay active, stay warm- Mr. Willard

 Help Wanted: Volunteer Opportunities

 Pattengill Science Olympiad Coaches Needed: PLEASE HELP! We need more Pattengill coaches this year to explore with small groups of students. No experience needed! This is exploration, which anyone can do. Please contact Jonathan Parker to learn more about coaching: jonathan.t.parker@leidos.com.


Event and Activity Volunteer Sign-Up: To volunteer for any of our PTO events and activities throughout the year, visit: 2015-2016 Bryant/Pattengill Volunteer Sign-Up.

 Reminders

 Pattengill Book Fair Begins This Week: Books make great holiday gifts! The Pattengill Book Fair will be open from Dec. 7-11. Be sure to visit the Family Event on Wednesday, Dec. 9, from 5-8pm at Pattengill. Please support the Fair as it is the only fundraiser to provide new books/materials for the Pattengill Library. Volunteers are still needed to help especially during the afternoons. Please choose a day/time to volunteer: Bookfair Volunteer Signup. Online shopping is available now until Friday, Dec. 4 (to ensure delivery to the school before winter break): Shop Pattengill’s Book Fair Online. Questions? Contact Mrs. Schreck at schreck@aaps.k12.mi.us. Many thanks for your support


Don’t Forget  Forget To Breakfast with Santa: Our December Restaurant Days will be on the mornings of Dec. 12 & 13 at Graham’s Restaurant at the Kensington Court Hotel, 610 Hilton Blvd., near Briarwood Mall. Pancakes, sausage, and assorted toppings will be served at 8am and 10am, followed by an optional visit with Santa from 8:30-9:30am and 10:30-11:30am. Breakfast will cost $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Be sure to mention you’re with Bryant/Pattengill, and 10% of sales will go directly to our schools. Space is limited, so please call to make a reservation (734) 761-1799, and ask for the sales department. Questions? Contact Larry Lage at larrylage@yahoo.com.
