Because of the Thanksgiving holiday there will not be an update from me next week. If there are memos, they will be sent to superintendents on Wednesday, November 22 and publicly released the following Monday.
It was great to see many of you this week in Casper at various education events. Thank you, Kevin Mitchell, for the time during your business meeting to update superintendents on various topics.
A special thank you to Converse County #1 Superintendent Fenton-Hughes, the local board of trustees, and Nutrition Director Monty Gilbreath for taking advantage of the local producer cost share program to bring local beef and pork to students. It was a privilege to be part of your celebration of local producers. I hope many other districts take advantage of this new grant program to bring local meat to schools and to promote agriculture in our schools.
On Monday, Governor Mead signed two education proclamations–Hathaway Day (November 16 was the official day) and Homeless Children and Youth Awareness Month. We hope many communities found ways to recognize these occasions in schools.
