#BackToSchool: Open Houses and Orientations

Back to school background with purple school bag and the title "Back to school" and math formulas written by white chalk on the black school chalkboard

(Gillette, Wyo.) Before school starts, students and teachers are full of questions. School open houses are a great chance for parents to meet their children’s teachers, learn more about the district’s curriculum and policies. They also present an opportunity for parents to meet other parents.

The junior high schools are holding seventh grade orientations so students transitioning into the new schools can learn about what’s different from sixth grade.

Every school has a different day and time for their events. To help kids and parents out, we here at County 17 are providing you with a complete list of all schools in the district, their locations and phone numbers, what event the school is holding, and when.
