Every member of the Wyoming community is invited to be part of a Wyoming City Schools CommUNITY Conversation
Wyoming City Schools and Superintendent Tim Weber would appreciate hearing from you! CommUNITY Conversations provide opportunities for Mr. Weber and community members to connect in small groups to share stories and discuss the issues that matter most.
What is a CommUNITY Conversation?
A CommUNITY Conversation is a gathering of 10-20 people in a home, business or place of worship. You gather your friends and provide a location and we’ll cover the rest. Mr. Weber would like to use these conversations as a way to learn more about Wyoming and to hear your thoughts about the strengths and opportunities for growth in our schools.
How Can I Get Involved?
If you are interested in hosting a conversation, please call or email Executive Assistant Missy Horn at 513-206-7020 or email@example.com to be added to the Conversation schedule for November or December.
This invitation is extended to all members of the Wyoming community. More information is available here: https://www.wyomingcityschools.org/news-events/
