Dear Superintendents,

Governor Gordon delivered the State of the State address these week as the Wyoming Legislature convened for the in-person portion of the session. Here is a link to the governor’s address where he discussed Wyoming’s economy, challenges, strengths, and education.

Early this week, Miguel Cardona was confirmed by the U.S. Senate and now serves as the U.S. Secretary of Education, replacing Betsy DeVos. Here is a video message from Secretary Cardona.

March Observances

  • March is Women’s History Month.
  • Pi Day is celebrated on 3/14 (March 14) worldwide.  Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.  Pi Day is an annual opportunity for enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and eat pie.

CONGRATULATIONS TO RAYLENE JONES of Natrona County High School! She won this year’s Poetry Out Loud state competition. More than 500 Wyoming students participated in Poetry Out Loud this school year. The competition is sponsored and supported by the Wyoming Arts Council. Here is a link to the virtual awards program.
