Welcome to Snowy Range Academy

Academic Excellence, Character Education, and Fairness for All

Snowy Range Academy (SRA) is a tuition-free kindergarten through 8th grade public charter school in Albany County School District #1. Our Core Knowledge charter school emphasizes academics, phonics-based Spalding Language Arts Instruction, accelerated Saxon Math, character education, and one of the most important, parental involvement.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We are happy to provide you with information about our school and the excellent programs and services we offer our students. Go, Falcons!

A Message from Our Principal

Dear SRA Community,

It was a pleasure to see all of you at parent-teacher conferences! There are clearly many good things going on with our students, and it is so reassuring to see the level of parental support. Thank you for all you do!

We are approaching Thanksgiving and with it, comes a change in the weather. Please make sure that your student comes prepared for the coldest part of the school day and has the appropriate clothing (hats, gloves, snow pants, boots, etc.) for our ever-changing Wyoming weather. We will be going outside as long as the temperatures do not drop below zero degrees, with the wind chill.

We have also just completed the first round of the new state assessment system – WY-TOPP. This is a computer-based assessment that replaces PAWS for SRA students in grades three through eight in the areas of reading and math. This test includes both multiple-choice questions and constructed response items where students have to show their answer in a variety of ways. Students in grades three, five, and seven also took a writing portion for their reading test, typing their responses. This information is helpful to the instructional team as we go forward.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at school or via e-mail.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,

Dawn D. Wilson
