Chadron Primary School held their annual Kindergarten Roundup on Friday, May 2nd. Sixty-four of the potential eighty Kindergarten students for the 2014-15 School year showed up to meet their teacher and their classmates. Kindergarten teachers Mrs. Mikel Landreth, Mrs. Tara Hoffman, and Mrs. Kristin Fisher, and substitute Mary Ann Wess (for Mrs. Melissa Brayton) were here to greet them and share some of the activities and routines that they will experience during their first year of school.

|The wires used for the production|
The students from Chadron Primary School had the privilege of attending the Lightwire Theater Performance of the Ugly Duckling and The Tortoise and the Hare sponsored by the Chadron State College Galaxy Series. The program was unique in that it provided a program of visuals, choreography, and the creative use of music ranging from classical to jazz to pop, literally bringing these tales into a new and brilliant light, with no speaking during the program.
Lightwire Theater was first introduced a couple of years ago on America's Got Talent. It was also offered to the public at 7:00 P.M. on Thursday evening. For a preview of what you child(ren) saw, you may access a short video by pasting http://www.youtube.com/
