  • Budding Young Architects Showcase Designs
    E3 Class Project
    Soda bottles, aluminum foil, cereal boxes and discardedHalloween and Christmas ornaments may not seem like the most important buildingblocks for cutting-edge architectural design, but at Bryant Elementary school,aspiring architects used these “materials” in their designs of the “school ofthe future.”
    Students in the school’s E3 – Engage, Enrich, Empowerafter-school program have been learning about the tenants of good design fromprofessional architects and planners. They then used that knowledge to come upwith designs which are aesthetically pleasing, functional, andenvironmentally-friendly. The students then presented their designs to a panelof professional architects at an event held at the school on Monday, May 20.The pros gave their input on what they saw.

    The flying classroom would be a good one to take on a field trip overthe Grand Canyon, noted one expert. And aluminum foil on a door? That could bea great source of solar energy. Parents got toview all the children's work in a gallery display after the presentation wascomplete.


    The class wastaught under the guidance of Erin Gettis, the City Historic PreservationOfficer, who volunteered her time to teach the class of 24 kindergarten-sixthstudents with assistance from parent Amanda Hughes and 6th grade teacher ScottBrennan.

    Students met every Monday for 6 weeks duringwhich they learned a variety of hands-on architectural skills.  At the very first class they built quickmodels of their ideal classroom and presented them to each other.  In subsequent classes students learned how tocreate architectural drawings like plans with section and elevation views -- firstof fruit and later of a room at home using their own foot as a measuringtool.  Rachel McLure visited from thePublic Utilities Department of Riverside City Hall and shared how toincorporate green building principles like skylights, water collection, andgreen roof systems.  The students learnedhow to identify the entry of buildings through clues like the path, doubledoors, porches, tower elements, and symmetry and studied plans of buildings tolearn how to identify public and private spaces.

     E3 Model

    Gettissaid some of the students changed their visual understanding of builtenvironments during the course. They began by designing in 2 dimensions in thefirst class and 6 weeks later gaining the ability to design in 3-dimensions fortheir final project - a model students built of their ideal art schools.  In the final project, students werechallenged to include all the things they learned throughout the class, i.e.green building principles, a sense of entry, and public/private spacedelineation.


    Final models were built of “found objects” likeboxes, cardboard tubes, popsicle sticks, and other items the students andfamilies of Bryant Elementary donated to design projects that were  constructed with scissors, glue and paperdonated by a local school supply company.


    E3 Presentation

    At the final presentation, juried bydistinguished plan members from the community (Al Zelinka Community DevelopmentDepartment Director at the City of Riverside; Park and Public UtilitiesPlanner; and designer Rachel McClure; and Thomas Riggle, Owner and architect ofTR Design Group and City Planning Commissioner), the students presented avariety of art classrooms that captured the imagination and innovation forwhich the school is becoming well-known. One student designed a flying classroom, another designed an outdoorclassroom in a courtyard with soft cushions and nature around, another studentdesigned a classroom surrounded entirely by a tunnel, and yet another designeda cable system to connect all of her rooms by a series of pulleys andelevators.  Many of the projects weredesigned with water towers collecting rain water and solar panels placed on theroof for alternative green energy. Several students created a sense of entry with tower elements andwindows and skylights throughout for natural light and ventilation.


    The class was a wonderful example of communitypartnerships that benefit a unique teaching and learning opportunity for bothstudents, who were introduced to architecture, and community volunteers whopracticed teaching in a 6 week time span to a varied age group from grades K-6,one day a week.


    Panel member Riggle said, "It was great tosee how thoughtful and creative all of the kids are!! I could tell that some ofthem really liked designing and I’d bet they will take it further...I know I’mlooking at the world a little differently after Monday's event." 


    Mr. Zelinka said, "The students reminded meof the hopeful future that is in store."

  • Young Author's Day
    Bryant held Young Author's Day on Friday, May 31, 2013. Students worked through the writing process to create personal narratives, fictional stories, poetry, expository writing, or even graphic novels. They published their work in BareBack Books purchased with grant money from REEF. The day began with an assembly featuring three local authors (Michael Elderman, Kathryn Lynn Davis, and Dan Bernstein) and concluded with students reading their books to one another. It was a great day!  Check out our photo album on our FaceBook Page.

  • Bryant Has POWER to Crush the Test
    Bryant will be taking the The California Standards Tests during the weeks of April 30 - May 16.  Our Second through Sixthgrade students and teachers have been working verydiligently all year towards mastery of grade level standards.  To kick off the testing season, Bryant Staff performed a skit to review important test taking tips.
    Be Test Wize
    Be Test-Wize and Follow the CST Road presented by Bryant Staff Members
    Each testing morning, the entire student body gets pumped up to their personal best by dancing!  (Cha, Cha, Slid; Chiken Dance; Electric Slide, etc.) We also recite our testing pledge, which includes listening carefully to directions, checking work, and using the skills we've learned.  

    To ensure ourstudents’ success on the CST, we are requesting your support in the followingareas:

    ·      AttendSchool Every day... and ON-TIME  – Ensure that yourchild is present and on time every day during the testing period.  Pleaseschedule any medical, dental, or personal appointments after school or on daysyour child’s grade level will not be testing. To provide our students the optimal testingenvironment, please be advised that there will be no classroom interruptionsduring testing hours, 8:10 – 10:20 AM. Any students arriving late on testing days will be sent to library andwill have to make up the test on another day sometime during the 3 weeks oftesting; however it will not be in the regular classroom with their regularteacher. Children perform better when they take the tests in their regularinstructional environment rather than a make-up session, so be here every dayand on time to avoid this distraction.

    ·      Eat aHealthy Breakfast: Help your child start every test day well rested and with a healthy breakfast. Research shows that children do better on tests when they have had a good breakfast.If your child iseating breakfast at school, please ensure that he/she arrives to school withplenty of time to finish eating by8:05 when the first bell rings. Breakfast starts at 7:30 am daily atschool. 

    ·      A PositiveAttitude is Contagious – Keep themorning as stress free as possible. Leave home in plenty of time in order for your child to start the schoolday in a calm and positive manner.  Pretest jitters are normal. Everyone gets a little nervous before a test. Encourage your child to simply do his/her very best on each part of the test.

    Read Across

    Thing 1 and Thing 2 prepared a fun day
    For all Bryant's students who came to play.
    On this March day, we celebrate Dr. Seuss
    And all of the wonderful books he did produce.
    Students came dressed as their favorite story
    Or a Dr. Seuss character in all of its glory!
    In the morning we had the great opportunity
    To hear stories read by people in our community.
    A 'Literacy Carnival' during lunch we did hold
    When games and activities began to unfold. 
    We topped off the day outside reading together
    Then ate birthday cupcakes while enjoying the weather!

  • Core Virtue for the Month of February:
    "Love of Country"
    Mt. Rushmore



    In February, we stress the civic virtues of love of country – particularly as they serve the larger virtue of justice. This ties in nicely with the February civic holidays (President’s Day – formerly Washington and Lincoln’s birthdays) to encourage student recognize their our civic communities – local and national, and sometimes international. That attachment is a positive good. 

    We should celebrate and learn from those who exemplified such positive traits. From Abraham Lincoln to Dorothea Dix to Eleanor Roosevelt to Martin Luther King, our greatest reformers have been our strongest patriots.

    When parents and schools cultivate loyalty and love of country, they increase the likelihood of raising young citizens who will be agents of betterment and constructive change. Reformers such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Martin Luther King Jr. have proven repeatedly that constructive change and progress do not come from those who maintain cynical detachment but from those who are passionate in their commitment.

    Then on Friday, December 21st, through a generous donationprovided by the Mary Roberts Foundation (at The Mission Inn), all Bryantstudents and staff will go to a movie atthe Mission Grove Theater.  Studentsin grades K-3 will see “Monsters Inc. 3D”and students in grades 4-6 will see “Riseof the Guardians”.   The Foundation is also purchasing a snackpack (popcorn, fruit snacks, and a drink) for each student.  Because of the generosity of the donor, studentsare not to bring their own money.  Wewill eat lunch when we return to school. Your child must have a signed field trip permission form on file at theschool by December 20th. 


    Over the past year, Bryantstudents have enjoyed the benefits of eating breakfast at school for free.  Unfortunately, the AASA-Wal*Mart Foundationbreakfast grant has come to an end.  Beginning in January, students whoqualify for free/reduced lunch will continue receiving free breakfast.  All other students may purchase breakfast for $1.00.


    The last day of school before thewinter recess is Friday, December 21 and school will resume on Monday, January 7,2013.


    Thank you to all parents andfamily members for your continued support this year.  We wish you and your family a peaceful andsafe Winter Break.

  •  Logo Located in downtown Riverside, Bryant is an ideal location as it is centered among the city’s museums, theaters, library, and art galleries. Authors, artists, architects, poets, and performers, along with other civic organizations, have shown a growing interest in developing partnerships that will support this new program. While enthusiasm for Core Knowledge and its potential for students is high, the challenge remains to make citizens aware of this school choice. Since Riverside Unified has become a “District of Choice,” students from within Riverside’s boundaries, as well as students from outside its borders are welcome to apply for transfers to attend Bryant Elementary in the early spring for the following year.

    Core Knowledge© at Bryant School is a great way to link Riverside Unified School District’s educational options with our city’s motto of “City of Arts and Innovation,” not only for our residents, but all interested parties. As the curriculum unfolds, no matter what level of ability a student starts with, he or she will experience a sense of achievement as knowledge and skills are mastered. Core Knowledge® guidelines cover language arts, history and geography, mathematics, science, art, and music, comprising well over half of a school’s curriculum. Other areas of study, such as local and state history, technology and physical education, are integrated with what is being taught in the Core Knowledge program.
