“We will be a school of integrity where learning with passion, curiosity, and motivation is pervasive (everyone, everywhere, all the time) and compulsive (irresistible).”
Bar Nunn Elementary School, located in the fastest growing community in Wyoming, has three main goal teams working to accomplish its mission and vision.
Teams exist for our school improvement planning and implementation. Our goals are based around Reading, Math, Operations and Parent Involvement. This year’s goal teams are Academics (Reading and Math); Parent: and Effective and Efficient Operations. 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.
Bar Nunn is a Success For All school, using the nationally recognized reading program. Math is taught using the “My Math” district-wide curriculum and Number Corner. For writing, Bar Nunn uses 6 Traits +1 and other supporting resources. Bar Nunn also uses the BEST behavior program and Second Steps Social Skills to facilitate positive peer and adult interactions. The school has additional staff to teach social skills and work with individual students, as needed.
Bar Nunn students may participate in Drama Club, Lego League, Spelling Bee, Technology Club, Science Club, Student Council, Homework and Reading Labs, Cooking Club, and Art Club. Fourth and Fifth graders may participate in volleyball, basketball, and track through the Casper Recreation Center.
Preschool is available for children who turn 3 by Sept. 15. Morning preschool is from 8:45 to 11:25 a.m., and afternoon preschool is from 12:45 to 3:30 p.m.
Preschool students are screened for pre-academic skills. The staff discusses student needs and prioritizes admission based on those needs. This process is
completed in May of each year for the next school year.
Classes at Bar Nunn run from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Before-school activities begin at 8 a.m., and after-school activities are available until 4:45 p.m. on Monday through Thursday.
