      Message From Our Principal

      Greetings SRA Community,

      February has arrived, which means we are on the downhill side of the school year. Of course, there will be many challenges ahead, but it is good to know we have made it this far together. This time of year can be difficult for many as we are frequently indoors due to the weather and shorter days. I hope you all find enjoyable activities to experience in Wyoming’s wonderful outdoors to keep your spirits high.

      I would like to thank the parents, students, and staff who participated in our math night event, which we hosted on January 11. We were very pleased with the turnout for this event, as we had 70 to 75 parents and students in attendance. Parent involvement is critical to a child’s success in school, so thank you for taking the time to make this a priority. Please know our teachers are ready, willing, and able to offer additional clarity and/or information to help you better support your child with their academics.

      Throughout the month of January, SRA students have been busy participating in the Measure of Academic Progress-MAP assessments as well as the WY-TOPP interim assessments. Please reinforce the importance of these assessments to your children as their level of effort does affect their outcomes. Remember, parents are a child’s first teacher and have the most impact on their child’s success.

      For prospective SRA parents, please watch for our open house dates. Open house events are great opportunities to visit SRA and learn more about how we operate. Also, your attendance at an open house event gives you priority in the SRA lottery should we not have enough seats for current requests.

      In closing, I hope you all have a wonderful February! On behalf of all of us at SRA, thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us and thanks to all who go the extra mile to support our school. SRA is a great place for students due to the strong support we receive from families and our community members.
