1. Why join the PTA?

The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more PTA advantages:

  1. Get connected! There's no better way to know what's happening in your school.
  2. Discover Great Resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
  3. Tap into a Network. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.
  4. Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause –- your child and all children in the community!
  5. Speak Up. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child's school.
  6. Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child's school, you'll be part of the solutions, helping make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events.
  7. Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you'll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.

For less than 3 cents a day, you can become a PTA member, joining more than 5 million other people who share your interest in issues affecting children. Everyone — parents, educators, students, and other citizens active in their schools and communities — is invited to join our not-for-profit parent association.


2.  Does joining the PTA require a time commitment?

It's not the amount of time you can contribute that's most important, but rather your commitment to help PTA make a difference in the lives of children. It only takes a moment to join. You do not have to be a volunteer to be a member. We value your time and strive to use it effectively.


3. What is Free Stuff Fridays all about?

Once a month, the PTA provides a treat at lunch to children who are PTA members. Treats include snow cones, ice pops, and popcorn. Each child must have a paid PTA membership to be placed on the Free Stuff Friday list. For example, if you have 3 children at Bryant, there must be at least 3 paid memberships for your family. The children love receiving the treats, so please join the PTA!


4. How do I order Uniforms?

All Bryant uniforms are sold in the Online Store. This is an efficient, convenient way to purchase your family’s uniforms. After selecting the items you want to purchase you will go to CHECK OUT page. It is very important that you enter your zip code in order to place your order. You may then select FREE Ship to School option or your order can be shipped directly to your home at a small shipping charge. To expedite your school delivery please write the student and teacher name in the NOTE/Special Instruction field on the CHECK OUT page. Once your order is delivered to school it will go home in your child’s backpack.

5. How long does it take to receive my order?

Delivery can take anywhere from 2-3 weeks.

6. Is there a shipping charge?

When you complete your order and check out, you will have the option to select home delivery or school delivery. School delivery incurs no shipping charge.  If you prefer convenient home delivery, you will be charged a shipping fee.  Once you compete your order and check out, enter your zip code in required area and press APPLY. Right below your zip code you will find all shipping options available to you. Use the drop box to choose either FREE SHIPPING (delivery to school) or any other option then click APPLY. Your choice of shipment will be reflected in your total.  

7. Who can I contact if I need assistance with my order?

If you need assistance with an article of clothing you have purchased or are about to purchase, or you have received wrong size, not the right color, etc… please contact LogoASAP directly at 813-626-2727 or tom@logoasap.com. For any other uniform inquiries please contact PTA Uniform Chair person at uniforms@bryntpta.com.

8.  When is the online store open?

Our online store is open all year round. We do stop the FREE Ship to School delivery in the months of June and July but this resumes in August. To receive your uniform order at OPEN HOUSE on August 14th you must order online and pay by July 30th.

9.  Why is the Polo Dress available for a limited time only?

The polo dress is a new item we are introducing. In order to keep the cost of the dress low, it must be ordered in larger quantity. All Polo Dress orders received in the month of July will be available for pick up at OPEN HOUSE. All Polo Dress orders received in the selected months after that will be delivered to school approximately two weeks after that particular month ends. This will allow us to compile the orders to secure the lowest price possible.

10.  What is a Spirit Shirt?

Spirit Shirt is a t-shirt with a fun design which can be worn on a Friday only with jeans or other bottoms. The design on the shirt changes every year. Designs from previous years and t-shirts received throughout the year from fun school related programs such as 5K Run, Boosterthon, Jumprope4Heart, Chess Club, etc., can be worn on Fridays as well. Be sure to order your new SUPER HERO SPIRIT SHIRT designed to promote this year’s school theme. These are available in youth and adult sizes. Enjoy wearing them every Friday.

11.  When are students required to wear the dress uniform?

For special events such as awards assemblies, fall pictures, field trips and group pictures, students will be required to wear a dress uniform, which includes navy blue collared polo. Please plan ahead and don’t wait until the last minute to order your embroidered navy polo.

12. What if I need to order additional uniforms throughout the year?

You can! Elect to have the order shipped to your home or sent to the school. Either way, there will be a 2 week processing time. A formal school uniform (NAVY BLUE EMBROIDERED POLO and khaki bottoms) is required for special events, such as award assemblies, fall pictures, field trips and group pictures. It’s always best to plan ahead and be prepared! Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate rush orders.

13. What if I need to make a return/exchange?

Please be sure to take your child’s measurements and view the sizing charts before ordering each item. For returning Bryant families, know that all polo brands/sizing are the same. The embroidered tee and spirit tee is a new dry blend 50/50 that should shrink less than the previous tee. Take your child's measurements and check out the sizing chart to ensure the correct sizing on these tees and all items. Sometimes errors can happen, so we urge you to contact uniforms@bryantpta.com to arrange for a return or exchange.

14. What school supplies do I buy?

16. What is Junior Achievement and how can I help?

Junior Achievement (JA) provides lesson plans and materials designed specifically for each grade level that teaches the students about financial literacy, economy, and business entrepreneurship. Each class at Mary Bryant must have at least one volunteer presenting the program.

This is a great opportunity to enter your child's classroom and become "teacher for the day". There are five lesson plans and each lesson actually takes up to or less than 60 minutes. You and your teacher will develop a teaching schedule that is suitable for both of you. On the days of FCAT testing volunteers are not allowed on campus until after noon. However, classes can begin as soon as the teacher can incorporate them into his or her daily routine.

To learn more, please join us for our JA introductory/refresher meeting with Tampa's JA coordinator, Anna Ryan, on Thursday, January 16, 2014 from 8:30am-10:00am in the MPR. Please RSVP via JA@BryantPTA.com.

Because of it's popularity among previous volunteers, the classes fill up quickly. If you are unable to make the meeting, please contact JA@BryantPTA.com and set up an appointment to discuss the program and review the materials provided in the classroom kit. For volunteers that have already signed up, please let Jocelyn know if you can pick up your kit on this day. We will still need to have the bio/conduct form completed.
