CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - With the last day of school coming up soon, Natrona County School District is looking for ways to keep students engaged over the summer. The district has released the Summer Sun Magazine which shares community resources and activities to keep families learning together.

“A lot of these other activities and resources that are available throughout our entire community are tremendous because they allow for kiddos to keep involved and the social elements up, but really to remain engaged in their learning in a fun way,” said Tanya Southerland, the Director of Public Relations for NCSD.

The Summer Sun Magazine includes information about activities happening within the school district such as marching band and sports. It also features information about community events and summer camps.

The school district also encourages families to read together during this time. 20 minutes of reading can help keep your child’s literacy skills sharp.

But a healthy mind isn’t possible without a full plate. The Natrona County School District is teaming up with agencies across the county to provide free lunches and snacks for children 18 and under.

“Our students and our staff are so important to the overall success of our school district and our community. So it’s really important to be able to work with our community and our state to provide those resources to students that may need them,” said Southerland.

NCSD will provide these services from 11:30-12:30 at the Boys and Girls Club- Main Branch (June 8th through August 24th) and the First United Methodist Church (June 8th through August 26th on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). They will provide lunch from 11-12:30 at the Casper Recreation Center (June 8th though August 19th).

The school district will continue updating the magazine throughout the summer to make sure all information and events are up to date.
