These students LOVE school so much, they never miss!!  We are down to only a handful of students (and only represented by Kindergarten and 2nd grade) who have had perfect attendance and we want to thank them and their families for making it to school every day so far.  Congratulations on doing a great job, we love seeing these smiling faces every day!

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.  
  • Parents and Staff are welcome (and encouraged!) to join in!
  • Students will be given a card at the completion of each lap.  At the completion of the required lap count, students will check in to make sure the Day of Participation has been recorded.
  • Comfortable school clothes and sport shoes are appropriate for running.
  • ALL STUDENTS will be dismissed from the track at 7:40.  This will allow time to eat school breakfast; or they may take a sack breakfast to their respective school to eat in the lunchroom.
  • In case of bad weather, MMC will be cancelled.  I will send a Remind Notification by 6:45a.m. (text @morningmar to 81010 to sign up! Or to receive messages via email, send an email to morningmar@mail.remind.com.)
    • General guidelines for cancellation will be wind chill below 15 degrees, rain, snow, or wind gusts over 35 mph.
  • This program relies on a large number of parent volunteers.  The track will be supervised daily by Parent Volunteers.  We need you!  It’s a great way to start the day with your kids!  If you have questions or would like to volunteer please contact Mrs. Rischling @ 430-4122.

Q and U Wedding

Friday afternoon Chadron Primary School hosted the Q and U Wedding.  These two letters were joined in two beautiful ceremonies (to accommodate our classes) where students were, (Quiet Please sign holders, Quarterbacks, and Queens).  Mrs. Uhing united the two letters as we need them for reading and spelling.  The festivities ended with refreshments and dancing.  Thank you to all of the families that came to our celebration and contributed with snacks.  
Our very own Mrs. Hyer as mother of the bride, complete with quarter earrings and quarters on her leggings.
























Reading Visitors

On Thursday and Friday we had Reading visitors at Chadron Primary School.  We were lucky enough to have some 8th graders from Chadron Middle School, a couple of players from CSC's basketball team, and some students from Job Corps.  Our students love having visitors and we enjoyed our day of celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday.  Thank you to everyone who came to read, our students LOVE having you!
