    Schoology at Bryant 2019
    Posted on 09/17/2019
    Typing on ComputerWelcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are excited to get to know your students, AND we are excited for you to get to know more about Bryant. One of our goals in our Continuous School Improvement Plan is to enhance communication. To that end, we just completed a four-hour staff training on Schoology, an online Learning Management System.

    Schoology enables our staff to post updates, materials, calendar items, etc., which students and families may access 24/7 from any computer or mobile device (if you download the app). All course materials and updates are organized and available in one place. Each child will have a Homeroom Course, along with courses from our Instructional Specialists, such as Special Ed, Reading, Art, Music, PE, Technology, and Library. Some families will already be familiar with Schoology, if they have students in middle school or high school in Seattle Public Schools.

    Thanks for your support and enrollment in the Source and Schoology!

    Sincerely,
    Charmaine Marshall Principal,
    Bryant Elementary
