Feedback Needed on Bryant-SLCSE Proposal

Dear current and future Bryant and SLCSE Families,

We need your feedback!  Currently under consideration is a proposal that would unite Bryant Middle School and the Salt Lake Center for Science Education (SLCSE) forming one STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) system where Bryant would be the middle school component and SLCSE would be the high school component.  Students exiting Bryant after 8th grade would have the option of attending SLCSE for high school.

Please go to the link below for more information, and to provide any feedback or questions you may have concerning this proposal.

Thank you.

Bryant is a Kind School

Bryant Middle School is committed to kindness. Thanks to schoolwide participation in a month-long Kindness Challenge, under the leadership of art teacher Emily Pierce, Bryant has earned a $500 grant from Donors Choose. Bryant was one of only 61 schools across 21 states to complete the fall challenge. In addition, a KIndness badge will appear next to Bryant’s name on the Greatschools website.

The Middle School Kindness Challenge gives students a chance to think about and practice kindness every day. Beginning October 24th, during a four-week cycle, teachers chose from a menu of activities or “pathways” found on in order to focus on a different aspect of kindness each week. Students identified simple acts of kindness such as giving a hug, a compliment, a smile, or extending an invitation at lunch and were made aware of how these gestures can lift another person up.

The Kindness Challenge is sponsored by a nonprofit group, Stand for Children, whose mission is to ensure equality and continual improvement for all K-12 students. The next challenge starts in early February. 

The month of kindness culminated in an activity in which students sprinkled cookies with kindness. Okay, they were sprinkled with sugar, but all agreed that kind acts are the real sweetness in our daily lives.

School Land Trust Final Report 2016-17 Now Available

The School Children’s Trust Section at the Office of the Utah State Board of Education was created to represent, support and advocate for the public school beneficiaries. The section is responsible for:

  • administering the School LAND Trust program,
  • monitoring the School and Institutional Trust Land Administration (SITLA) as they manage the trust lands for the benefit of the public schools, and
  • overseeing the investment of the permanent State School Fund by the School and Institutional Trust Fund Office (SITFO).

To visit the School Land Trust website and view the final report for 2016-17, click on the following link: School LAND Trust Plan, Choose the “schools” tab and Salt Lake (District) and Bryant MD from the dropdown menus.

You may also visit the School Community Council (SCC) page for more information. 

Get involved with the School Community Council!

The first meeting will take place on September 15, 2017 from 7:00 – 8:00 AM in the Hospitality Room at Bryant.

Get even more involved!

Serving on the School Community Council is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school. The school receives an annual dividend from the school trust lands. Our council decides how these funds will be used. This year our school received $37,631 from the School LAND Trust Program. The council reviews and prepares other academic plans for our students each year. All plans are reviewed for final approval by our school board. Councils also act in an advisory capacity to school and school district administrations.

Want to apply? Please visit the SCC page by clicking here


Every public school in Utah has a School Community Council.  The councils are made up of school employees who are elected by employees and parents who are elected by parents of students attending the school.  Membership terms are for two years.  Elections are held at the beginning of each school year.  Parent members must have a student attending the school. Employees must be employed by the school district at the school.

A Message from Superintendent Cunningham


Dear SLCSD Families,

Excellence and Equity: Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day: this is our vision statement for the Salt Lake City School District (SLCSD). We are committed to achieving this vision and ensuring ALL students in our district obtain a quality education. 

We believe in our students and in their hopes, dreams, and potential. Our schools and our students are strengthened by our district’s diversity. SLCSD embraces and supports all of our students, regardless of background, race, ethnicity, or any other factor. And we will continue to champion our students and families, and to welcome and teach every single child who enters our school doors.

In January 2017, the SLCSD Board of Education passed a Safe School Resolution affirming our district’s commitment to our students and our schools. During these uncertain times, we appreciate the support of our teachers and our parents in having conversations with students about current events and reassuring them that school will always be a safe space.

Below are some tips to help adults talk with children about these important yet challenging topics:

·       Don’t be afraid to talk to children about recent events that appear in the news and on social media.

·       Promote a sense of safety by acknowledging current events, and ask children if they have any questions or concerns they would like to talk about.

·       Use age-appropriate language (i.e. talk to elementary-school-aged children about the importance of being a good friend and valuing each other’s differences).

·       Share experiences, when appropriate.

·       Model good behavior, such as being supportive of other cultures.

·       Share ideas about how our children can respond to those who are displaying inappropriate behavior.

During the school year, SLCSD administrators and counselors are a good resource to assist teachers and parents in addressing any concerns that may arise when speaking to children. We in SLCSD will never stop doing what is right for ALL of our students.

Yours in education,

Lexi Cunningham, Ed.D.
Salt Lake City School District
