Chadron Primary Rounds Up Its New Kindergartners

     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 new Kindergarten students had a great time and will hopefully be anxious to begin school in the fall of the year.  The teachers are really looking forward to teaching this new group of students.
