Music Concert Tonight!!


Please make sure your child is in the band room at Bryant Middle School  by 6:40 pm, so they can take the stage at 7pm.  They’ve done a great job performing for the school and practicing at Bryant today!

I may not be there tonight, as the 24 hour flu/stomach bug has hit my house.  All 3 of my little boys are sick with it.  If I don’t see you tonight, I hope to see you on Friday for our Holiday party!

Grinch Day Fun

Thank you to all those who sent in sweet treats for the kids to enjoy while we watched the original movie “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.  The kids got to play pin the heart on the Grinch, make a Grinch craft from multiplication, play Grinch jeopardy, and enjoy Grinch snacks.  We had some really cute hair-dos, outfits, and even faces that were painted like Mr. Grinch!

Social Studies Family Immigration Project Reminder!!

Dear Parents,

Please support your student with this wonderful family history project.  Each student needs you to sit down with them and answer a few questions about your family heritage. The main theme of this paper is what “pushed” your relatives from their home country and then what “pulled” them to the United States.

Students will use this information to write a 5 paragraph paper on their family history.  This is 50% of their Social Studies grade.

This paper is due on Monday, December 3rd!!

Thank you for your support and cooperation,

A. Cronin

Donor’s Choose Project- Flexible Seating

Hi Friends and Family,

I want to make sure my students have what they need to succeed, so I just created a classroom request.

As you know we are a flexible seating classroom this year, and I want to make sure we fully implement and that my students have plenty of choice!  I currently have some seating options available for students outside the desk/chair option, but I want to give them even more!

Flexible Seating for Success

Please consider donating to our classroom by November 20, 2018 and your donation will be doubled thanks to Just enter the code LIFTOFF during checkout and you’ll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $50). If you know any businesses, or companies who are looking to donate to a school, please pass this along!

In return, you’ll get awesome photos of your gift in action and our heartfelt thanks.

Thank you so much,
Mrs. Izbicki

P.S. If you know anyone who may want to help my students, please pass this along and share the link 🙂 🙂
