Please Join Us In Celebrating Some Amazing Teachers


Last Date for Library

Dear Parents,

With the quickly approaching last day of school, our last checkout in library is going to be May 4th.  We would appreciate it if we could get all library materials returned or paid for by May 4th.  We will be starting our inventory May 5th.  Thank you in advance.

First and Second Grade Spring Music Program

Once again Mrs. Dickerson and her music classes did an AMAZING job of performing.  The first and second graders delighted the audience with their Spring Music Program on April 11th.  The first grade classes did their program about flowers and the second grade classes featured all different types of bugs.  The students worked so hard on memorizing lines and songs and should be congratulated on a job well done.  A huge thank you to all of the work Mrs. Dickerson and her students put into this program as well as the classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, Mrs. Slingsby, and student volunteers who helped to make this night such a success!

Chicks

Mrs. Cogdill's 2nd grade classroom has had a few new additions over the past two weeks.  The chicks have hatched and there is a great deal of excitement in the room.  They had a total of 16 chicks and all are doing well.

Challenge Days

Chadron State College hosted their annual Challenge Days for our elementary students.  CSC college students host a variety of stations and games that get kids moving and our Primary students always have such a great time.  We cannot thank everyone involved with the planning of this wonderful event and we look forward to many more activities that bring our schools together.












March Cardinals of the Month

Once again Chadron Primary celebrated some outstanding students with breakfast in the teachers' lounge.  These students were chosen by the classroom teachers as Cardinals of the Month as they exhibit outstanding behavior and follow our three Cardinal Rules:  Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible.  We always enjoy rewarding our students for positive behavior and when you see these children make sure you congratulate them for a job well done!  We are so proud!

What a GREAT way to start the day - Daylight Donuts breakfast sandwiches and donuts!

Back Row (2nd Grade):  Riah F., Elizabeth M., Nellah Y., and Jack O.
Middle Row (1st Grade):  Rylan B., Avery K., Mercy N. and Ami G.
Front Row (Kindergarten):  Jett P., Jennie P., A'Leah C., and Broedy J.

We always have to end with a silly picture.

Students, staff, parents and friends are invited to join the fun as we begin the 7th Annual Morning Marathon Club (MMC)!  We will meet 7:10-7:40a.m., Mondays through Thursdays on the high school track to walk/jog/run supervised ¼ mile laps.  Our first day will be March 27, 2017.  We will NOT meet April 17, due to no school on that day.  Our last day will be May 18.  Registration is now open for our finale: the Panhandle GOTR 5K & Fun Run on May 20, 2017!  (MUST register ONLINE at www.gotrnebraska.org by APRIL 6, to guarantee t-shirts!! All runners under 16, must have Run Buddy)
The goal of this program is to give each participant a positive start to the day, establish a routine of exercise and live a healthy lifestyle.  This will help them build confidence and self-esteem that comes from setting goals and crossing the finish line.  Lace up those running shoes and let’s get moving!
The first day each student participates, s/he must have a signed permission form.  If you would like your child to get a shirt and be eligible for prizes, please return contract & form with check (made out to Chadron Public Schools).  Deadline to order these will be April 13, 2017.  
Days of participation are defined as follows:  CMS students must complete 6 laps, CIS students must complete 5 laps, and Primary:  2nd graders must complete 4 laps, 1st graders & Kinders=3 laps. Students will have the opportunity to reach 2 levels:  Mini Marathon or Marathon.  Students must complete 16 days of participation to reach the Mini Marathon level.  Upon achieving this goal, s/he will receive a MMC sackpack.  Students must complete 24 days of participation to reach the MARATHON level.  Upon achieving this goal, s/he will earn a Morning Marathon hooded sweatshirt!
Some specifics about the Morning Marathon Club:
Each student who participates must have a signed permission form (and $10 to be eligible for prizes).  Form must be turned into Mrs. Rischling before participating – just bring it to the  track! (Scholarships available for those in need.)  Questions?  Contact Mrs. Rischling 430-4122
  • Students in first grade and older may run unaccompanied.  Kindergarten students need a parent with them for the first day.
  • Students must check in at the press box at the High School Track before they can count laps!
  • ALL STUDENTS may begin any time between 7:10 and 7:25.  No runners may begin after 7:25.
