Back to School: Resources and Programs for a Great Year of Learning

The summer flew by, as it always does in Wyoming – coolness creeping into the air, and the once green landscape now boasting hints of gold. And with these natural changes comes the hustle and bustle of back-to-school season; parents scramble with checklists and children excitedly await classes with friends. Back to school is more than just pencils and notebooks, however. It’s learning in and out of the classroom, leadership experiences, artful discovery, and academic adventure.

As we look forward to the coming school year, keep in mind these resources, services, and opportunities across the state for families and youth!
