More Good News About Financial Literacy in Wyoming

Wyoming Department of Education > Superintendent's Update > More Good News About Financial Literacy in Wyoming

Dear Superintendents,

There is more good news about financial literacy in Wyoming. Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to hear an update from the leaders of Young AmeriTowne: WyoTowne. Many of you attended a panel at last year’s State Superintendent’s Policy Summit (S5S) and learned about the lofty goals set for the program and it showed! The program grew to 1,237 fifth graders – there is still room for more students to participate this upcoming school year!

The WyoTowne program engages students in positive civic behavior, leadership, problem solving, and money management. WyoTowne is a positive and impactful primer to programs that many schools offer in middle school and high school.

Comments about WyoTowne 2018-2019:

“The reason the day was so powerful goes way beyond the WyoTowne experience. The curriculum is thorough, user-friendly, and offers students an experience they do not get anywhere else in K-12 education.” – Joel Thomas, Principal at Little Snake River Valley School

“Thank you for making this a part of our school. We have struggled with these skills our whole lives and would have love to have this experience when we were kids.” – Wyoming Parent

“Why was this so short? We wanted to stay longer.” – Wyoming 5th Grader

Below is a graphic with information about this year’s WyoTowne, if you would like to learn more or schedule a day for your students to attend.
