    Dear Bryant Families and Bryant Tigers! 

     Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at Clifford E. Bryant School! I hope each of you had a wonderful summer! With great enthusiasm, energy, and expectations, I look forward to providing effective leadership to the staff and students at Bryant School.

    I welcome and encourage participation and support from all families and the community at large. If we are to continue to provide an outstanding education to our students, we must make each day at Bryant School a successful one!

     As we get back into the routines of school, it is important to remember several things:

    • Being Prepared- Start now by getting your child back in the habits of going to bed early and eating a healthy breakfast. This will make the first week of school and beyond, much more enjoyable.
    • Communication- Maintain regular communication with the classroom teacher and school office. Always inform the school office of any changes to your contact information.

    Arrival/Dismissal---NEW START/END TIMES

    School begins at 8:44am and ends at 3:50pm. Students should not be dropped off prior to 8:30am unless they are signed up for Before/After-School Care. Breakfast begins at 8:30am. Likewise, students must be picked up at dismissal. Student pick-up is outside unless there is severe weather. At which point, parents should park and pick up their child in the gym.


    Our circular drive is reserved for busses only, please do not pull up or park in the circular drive when dropping off or picking up students. Also, please do not allow children to walk through the parking lot. With a high traffic volume, there will be many vehicles entering/exiting Bryant. Utilizing the pick-up/drop-off lane or parking and walking your child (ren) into the building are the safest ways to get in the school.

    • If at any point, your child’s (ren) normal dismissal routine changes, please communicate this to the teacher or call the office. We will not make any changes in your child’s dismissal routine without prior notice from you.

     Curriculum Night at Bryant

    This evening is for parents to come and learn more about the curriculum. Please join us on Tuesday, September 13th 6:30-8pm for Curriculum Night. During this time, you will learn about the AAPS curriculum, meet the teachers, and sign up for fall conferences.


    If your child will be absent or tardy from school, please call the school office (997-1212) before 8:30 AM. There is voicemail available to record messages when the office is closed or when the staff is unavailable to answer the phone. Teachers take attendance each morning and afternoon. We are required to call and check on all children who are absent and whose families have not notified the office.

    Our students are our future! We as educators are responsible for developing a strong foundation, a thirst for education and assist in fostering the importance of life-long learning. With ongoing supports from our parents and our community, WE can make certain that our students, beginning in Kindergarten, are on a journey to become college and career ready!

    Thank you for allowing the Bryant team to assist you in the educational development of your child (ren). Please do not hesitate to contact the classroom teacher or the office, should you have any questions.


    Roberta M. Heyward, Ed. S.

    Our mission is to inspire EVERY student to think, to learn, to achieve, and to care in an environment that recognizes and celebrates individual differences.


    Bryant and Pattengill Schools are teamed to create the only Paired Schools in the Ann Arbor School District.  The Paired concept was implemented in September 1986 as a result of a reorganization throughout the School District.  It draws students from several areas in southern Ann Arbor, including Briar Hill, Briarwood, Bryant, Georgetown, Lake Forest, Oak Meadows, Pattengill, Stonebridge, Stone School, Valley Ranch and Weatherstone neighborhoods, creating a diverse and culturally rich community.  

    Bryant serves children from Young Fives through Grade 2, while Pattengill serves the older children in Grades 3-5.  This unique structure creates a rich learning opportunity, which allows the Super Pair to focus on the distinct developmental needs of the children at each of the two schools.  It also results in multiple teachers at each grade level, which expands the variety of teaching expertise available to our students and staff.

     Bryant classrooms are paired with classrooms at Pattengill and many joint learning experiences take place during the year.  Several activities during the school year are held with Bryant and Pattengill jointly, such as the International Festival, Family Math and Science Nights, Movie Night, the Ice Cream Social in May and alternate PTO meetings. 

    Bryant Pattengill Schools are now Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Schools. PLTW is a project-based Science, Technology, Engineering and Math program. For more information on PLTW, please visit

    Bryant Pattengill Schools also participates in the district's iPad Initiative. This means there is an iPad for every three students. Students use iPads and other technological devices to enhance their learning during curriculum rotations.
