Dear Parents and Students,
We hope all is going well with you and your families. We also hope you have had the opportunity to watch the video we shared with you from our Bryant staff. If not, please make sure you visit

As we move into this 4th week of Remote Learning, we wanted to provide updates for this week and what to expect in the upcoming weeks.
For this week, April 13th, students will complete Skill X on IXL with a required 80% Smart Score. Their article on NewsELA for this week, The Appeal of Dystopian Novels for Teens, will be a great lead into our 7th Grade novel, “Legend” by Marie Lu.
We will begin reading, “Legend” by Marie Lu the week of the 20th and continue with it until the end of the school year. We will provide a reading schedule, background information, and fundamental information for your success. Note that we will also provide an online PDF version of the novel along with a link to the audiobook on Youtube. If you are interested in ordering the novel, you may do so; however, we are not sure if book stores will be able to fulfill many orders of the novel at this time. For that reason, you will all have access to the online version.
Additional information on the novel and our plan will come your way on Monday, April 20th. Please make sure that when you get that email, you read it thoroughly so as to avoid any confusion.
Please feel free to reach out to us with questions and concerns.
