Kindergarten Step Ahead Summer School Program

We would like to invite your child to participate in the Step Ahead Kindergarten Program. This program is sponsored by Albany County School District, funded through the Bridges grant and Title 1 and is free of charge to parents. Step Ahead is a Summer program for children entering Kindergarten this fall.

The objective of Step Ahead is to help your child transition smoothly into the public school setting in the fall by teaching entry level Kindergarten skills. Targeted goals for students are to identify and write the letters in their first name; count and group objects up to 15; follow 3-step directions; and increase attention to learning tasks. These skills are consistent with best practices used in our school district.

The Step Ahead/Title 1 summer program will take place at the Lab School, August  12th through August 15th (Monday-Thursday). Transportation, if necessary, will be provided by the school district to the Lab School and back home. The hours for the program are 8:00-11:30 a.m. A morning snack will be provided.

If you would like to enroll your child in Step Ahead please fill out the attached form and return it to the Lab School by May 30th.

UW Lab School Alternative Schedule Public Meeting Presentation & Request for Comment

A virtual public meeting presentation regarding an Alternative Schedule request for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years can be found below this message.  The purpose of the virtual public meeting presentation is to provide information about the proposed schedule and receive comment.  The proposed schedule would extend the school day until 3:15 each Monday through Thursday and provide an early release on most Fridays.  On the early release days, students would attend school through lunch and be dismissed at 12:45.

The proposed schedule and calendar maintain all ACSD#1 vacation days and professional development days to provide as much consistency as possible for staff and families.  Friday afternoon clubs will be available to support any parents for whom the early release is a hardship.

This request reflects the unique role of the school in partnering with the University and serving as a laboratory setting for pre-service educators.  The purpose of the proposed schedule request is to provide additional time to collaborate with colleagues, including pre-service educators, University faculty, and University and community resources.  To support our role as Lab School, the increased collaborative time will focus on improved curriculum, instruction, and assessment to result in improved student learning.

The virtual public meeting presentation can be viewed in the document below.  The public comment period will be from Monday, April 20, through Monday, April 27.  Links to the Alternative Schedule request documents and the public comment form are included in the presentation.  The Alternative Schedule request must be submitted to the Wyoming Department of Education by May 1 and plans for the possible implementation of the alternative schedule for the 2020-2021 school year will be determined with consideration of the changing circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
