Friday, Governor Mark Gordon signed Senate File 32, the K-3 Reading Assessment and Intervention Program bill.
Last Monday, I was honored to accompany the governor and First Lady Jennie Gordon to Arp Elementary in Cheyenne to kick off National School Breakfast Week (March 7-11) with a proclamation signing. I’m proud to share in highlighting and celebrating these important efforts of schools all across Wyoming.
With the closing of the legislative session, I am excited to hit the road and see what schools are doing around the state. Wrapping up three “in the field” visits last week to schools in Meeteetse, Powell, and Cody, I was inspired and I am edified by the incredibly committed leadership of these districts and I am amazed beyond words at the creative, cutting-edge work that the teachers and staff exhibit.
From the strong and caring sense of family at Cody High School’s Heart Mountain Academy (the students love it there), to the champion robotics program and multi-disciplinary art displays (no words can describe) at Powell schools, to the reading program and Special Education offerings at Meeteetse schools (one of Wyoming’s best kept secrets).
I look forward to spending time in your districts, classrooms and communities to see first-hand the great work being done at the local level.
