Welcome Back

Blue and gold letters that ready Happy New School year!


We are excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know that a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education.

Middle school children go through tremendous changes physically, socially and emotionally. They are most successful in a structured and challenging environment. Although they seek independence, they need the adults in their lives to support them and provide this clear and consistent structure. There are multiple ways you can support your child through these exciting times:

  • Register and regularly check Parent Connect
  • Sign up your child’s teacher classroom blog and the Bryant School Blog
  • Make sure that your child completes their homework every night and reads for 20 minutes five nights/week
  • Monitor your child’s activities and friends
  • Take your child’s cell phone and/or internet device from them at bedtime
  • Get involved in the Bryant School community:  join the PTSA, volunteer at the school, etc.

Summer Learning: Math and Literacy

Dear Parent/Guardian,

According to Johns Hopkins University, the effects of summer learning loss can result in nearly a three-month loss in grade-level equivalency in math and a two-month loss in grade-level equivalency in reading.  In order to close the summer learning loss gap in reading and math, middle school students will be expected to complete Summer Learning before they return in the fall. Teachers will grade the completed summer work when school opens in August.  Below are the expectations for math and literacy.  Thank you so much for supporting your child’s development through summer learning.


  • Complete 60 minutes of Khan Academy a week (Practice only, videos will not count), based on their NWEA level.
  • Students need to access Khan through Clever from the Dearborn Schools Student page.



Below is the grade breakdown by minutes for Math.

480+ minutes    A  

384 – 479           B

336 – 383           C

288 – 335           D


  • Read 3-5 books from your building’s recommended reading list.  Please check the Bryant School blog for recommended book lists and rubrics for the Book Talk presentations that will be shared in the fall.
  • Be prepared to present a Book Talk in September when you return to school.
