Summer Reading Program

We are pleased to announce that our school is participating in the SUMMER READING PROGRAM sponsored by the Wyoming Association of Elementary and Middle School Principals (see the Informational Letter).  This program is intended to promote continued reading during the summer months.  Keep track of your reading minutes during the summer using this Summer Reading Log.  Please return your log sheet to your new teacher by September 6th.


You’re Invited!   Tuesday, August 20th, 2019 from 11:45 A.M. – 12:45 P.M.

On Tuesday, August 20th families and students are invited to meet the teachers. Teachers will be in their classrooms to answer questions and help prepare for the first day of school. This hour is meant to help families and students:

  • Find their new classroom to meet and learn about their new teacher
  • Become familiar with the classroom setting (maybe even pick out a desk)
  • Get a jump start on important school paperwork
  • Drop off school supplies
  • Feel confident and relaxed about Wednesday morning

We hope you can join us!
