Just a friendly note to say that there’s no PTA meeting this month, but we’ll have a lot to talk about in January. In the meantime, we hope your holidays are restful, peaceful and happy.

We look forward to seeing you in January!


Good morning Bryant PTA parents!  Your child should have brought home the following flyer about Detroit Pistons tickets: Bryant Pistons Night Flyer 18

Maybe you even heard how awesome the Pistons Assembly was on Monday.  Please note a few updates to the Pistons Game Night:

Due to a schedule change, the game on January 19th is against the Wizards, not the Hawks.  Also, when ordering your tickets, buyers have three (3) game dates to choose from: Friday, January 19th; Sunday, January 21st at 4:00 pm; OR Wednesday, January 24th at 7:00 pm.  Please note buyer’s selected date on the order form in the “Game Date” column.

Remember to make checks payable to Detroit Pistons and that order forms and payment are due back to school by Monday, January 8, 2018.  Not only is this event a fun way to support the Pistons, but $5 of every ticket sold will be donated back to Bryant!  Hope to see you there!

Do you have a student that is a painter or a sculptor? Writes interesting stories or beautiful poems? Loves to take photographs? Is a great dancer? Or, an aspiring film maker? These are just examples and can include others.

Wouldn’t it be great if they were recognized or even awarded locally? Within our district? Within our state? Or nationally?

Then, encourage your student to participate in PTA Reflections! This year’s theme is “Within Reach” and can be interpreted within the following categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.

Bryant has so many talented students! Don’t let yours miss out on this wonderful opportunity. Last year, several Dearborn students were awarded at the state level; and, two students from Dearborn were awarded at the National Level!

Time is running out! The deadline is December 1, 2017. That’s only 2 weeks away! Let your wonderful artist shine and show their work! Contact the PTA Reflections Chair ASAP: Janet Hughes j.hughespta@hotmail.com 313-283-5581

2017-18 Reflections Student Packet

Instead of product sales this school year, Bryant PTA is having a raffle.  Our goal is to require your support and participation for ONLY 1 PTA-sponsored fundraiser all year long.  This means you (or your child) only have to sell raffle tickets, not magazines and popcorn, and not pizza kits.

Your child should have received 25 $2.00 raffle tickets today, along with a cover sheet detailing much of the same information found on this page.  If you have multiple children at Bryant, your oldest middle-schooler will have received these tickets for your family to sell.

We are asking each family to sell at least 25 tickets.  The raffle will take place on December 15th.  Three cash prizes will be awarded: (1) $500.00 prize and (2) $250.00 prizes.  If we are unable to reach our fundraising goal, these prize amounts may change, so please sell all your tickets!  Winners do not need to be present at the drawing to win!

If we are able to reach our goal of $8,000.00, there will be no need for additional fundraisers for the entire year!  That means NO magazine sales!


November 16th: Raffle tickets will be sent home with your student.  Each family gets 25 tickets in their envelope; the cost of each raffle ticket is only $2.00.

For all tickets you sell, please have the purchaser fill out this form and then give them the ticket with the “2017 Raffle” on it, and then return this stub in the envelope to be entered in the raffle.

December 8th: All sold ticket stubs and money collected, along with any unsold tickets are due back to Bryant no later than this date.  The Michigan Lottery Association REQUIRES that we collect ALL tickets/stubs for this fundraiser, regardless of whether they have been sold or not.  If you choose not to participate in this fundraiser, please return tickets as soon as possible.  You can also write a check for the cost of the tickets ($50.00) to Bryant PTA if raffles aren’t your thing.

December 15th: Raffle drawing will be held at 10am at Bryant Middle School.  Raffle winners need not be present to win.

The PTA can only accept cash or check for sales of raffle tickets.  Checks should be made payable to “Bryant PTA”.  We hope your family can help support our school by either purchasing the tickets for $50.00 or selling them to friends and family for $2.00 each

If you are able to sell more than 25 tickets, please contact Jennifer Engquist at 734.552.8447.
