10/2 Weekly Update

Shhhh! It's a surprise Mr. Muma's 50th birthday is over fall break. We are going to officially celebrate it on Friday.  He loves the University of Wyoming (it's his alma mater) so we will be wearing the school colors, gold and brown! 

Friday is also our fall party. There is a link to a signup genius below. Thank you for your support!


We are attaching another signup genius for fall conferences. They will beTuesday, November 6th and Wednesday, November 7th.  After you meet for your student led conference, if you'd still like to talk with a teacher, you can sign up for an individual conference on Friday, November 9th.  We wanted to give you a heads up so you can plan accordingly.


Have a great week and fall break! See you October 22!
