Drop off your donations in the collection bins located around the courtyard and in the car line as you enter the school!

Monday: Clothing Drive (Benefits Oasis Networks)
Bring new and gently used clothing of all sizes and styles: collared shirts, pants, shirts, belts, coats, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, play clothes and NEW underwear and socks.  As we enter the colder months of the year, OASIS has an increased need for items suitable for the colder weather.

Make good use of those grocery store "Buy One Get One" sales.  Bring in non-perishable food items to share with those in need in our community.

Thursday: Uniform Drive (Benefits Sulphur Springs Elementary)
Clear out all your uniform items that no longer fit the kids!  Bring in clean, gently worn khaki shorts & pants and white or navy t-shirts (non-logo). The school is particularly in need of sizes for the older grades and items for boys.

Friday: Toy Drive (Benefits Metropolitan Ministries)
Bring in new, unwrapped toys for girls and boys of all ages.  This drive will benefit the children living in the shelter at Metropolitan Ministries and is sponsored by the Mary Bryant National Elementary Honor Society.


The Great American Teach-In is a perfect opportunity for parents, business leaders, and community members to let our students know we care about them.

The idea is simple - join us on Thursday, November 20th, 2014, and teach a class or two, whatever your schedule permits.

The shopping season has begun! Mary Bryant Elementary is holding their annual Holiday Gift Shop from Monday, December 1st through Friday, December 5th. This is the perfect opportunity for your children to purchase affordable gifts for everyone in the family.

Gifts are moderately priced and range in price from $.25-$10.00, with most items priced under $5.00.  Monday, December 1st is Preview Day.
