A letter to our Parents...
Welcome back for another great year at Bryant Elementary! As we enter this school year, we have alot to be excited about this year. Our addition has been completed and we are anxious to utilize our new cafeteria, media center and robotics room. As a result of having our cafeteria, we are able to offer recess before lunch. This will increase the focus for students on finishing lunch rather than rushing out to recess and it decreases disruptions to classroom instruction as students return to classes for afternoon instruction. As a building, we have adopted a theme of HAPPY - "Having a Positive and Productive Year".
We have met as a district behavior team over the summer and have aligned PBiS lessons and procedures to continue improving our behavior practices. We will continue to have our Parent Engagement events over the course of the year to involve you in your child's learning. Some of these events our "Grandparents Day", "Young Author's Day", "All Pro Dad's Day" and "Moms & Muffins".
As the instructional leader at Bryant Elementary School my number one priority is our kids. Bryant Elementary School students deserve the best. I am passionate about my role as principal and I will make decisions that are in the best interest of your child.
If I can ever be of assistance, please call or email me! I look forward to seeing you. Thanks for the opportunity to serve our GREAT community here at Bryant Elementary.
HAPPY at Bryant,
Mrs. Shelly Collison
I am excited to be the Principal of Bryant Elementary School. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty years. During this time, my experiences include teaching First through Third grades, Resource Room and Title One Reading at the elementary level in Owosso. Prior to becoming the principal at Bryant, I was a Title One Reading Specialist here. I have lived in the Owosso community for the past 25 years and consider it “home”.
I enjoy riding along the river trail on bike rides, cross-country skiing at DeVries Nature Center, kayaking at Hopkins Lake, walking my dog, Char, on the trails at Harmon Patridge Park and taking my grandchildren to the splash pad at Bentley Park. I am passionate about reading, so you may see me visiting the Owosso Public Library. I also love spending time up north with my family and friends.
As the instructional leader at Bryant Elementary School, my number one priority is our kids. Bryant Elementary School students deserve the best and as the educational leader, I am "All In" to make sure that happens. I am passionate about my role as principal and I will make decisions that are in the best interest of your child.
