Bar Nunn Elementary School, located in the fastest growing community in Wyoming, has several goal teams working to accomplish its mission and vision. Teams exist for writing, program fidelity, effective and efficient operations, and at-risk/solutions process.
Bar Nunn works to provide an atmosphere that will create a desirable attitude toward learning and a respect and appreciation for work well done. Students deserve the best, and they are expected to give their best. Parents also have a valuable role to play in the encouragement and support they lend to their children and the school. Parent volunteers and visitors are welcome.

The Bar Nunn Parent Teacher Association (PTA) provides assistance and programs that benefit our students and our school. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings. We hope everyone will join and become active in the Bar Nunn PTA. Our PTA pays for the cost of only $3 per family. So all you do is sign up. The PTA hosts activities such as the carnival, popcorn sales and Valentine's Cake Raffle.
Parents also are encouraged to be involved with their child's schooling. Students are expected to read 20 minutes per night with confirmation from parents. In addition, parents are invited to visit and participate in classrooms, school activities and family reading and math nights. Parents of preschoolers at Bar Nunn are expected to volunteer in the preschool program.
Weekly information packets will be sent home to parents on Thursdays.
