Battle of the Box Tops Begins in October

      To encourage students to turn in the Box Tops that their families have collected, we have decided to start some "friendly" competition between classrooms beginning Tuesday, October 1 and ending October 31.  Coming home with your student on September 25 is a sheet on which you and/or your child can paste the Box Tops.  If you need more sheets, please have your child ask his/her teacher.
     The classroom who collects the most Box Tops on October 31 will win a Pizza Party.  Thanks for helping with our Box Tops for Education project.  Currently we have accumulated $626 in Box Tops.

Mice Spotted at Chadron Primary School

Mrs. Landreth's and Mrs. Fisher's
City Mice
Mrs. Hoffman's and Ms. Schmid's
Country Mice

      Chadron Primary School was over run by mice on Friday, September 20.  However, the mice were so adorable, they were allowed to stay.
     Upon completion of the story "City Mouse, Country Mouse," and a discussion about the differences between the city and the country, the Kindergarten students and their teachers celebrated by completing a costume in their art class, by eating blueberry pop tarts, string cheese, and juice (just like in the story), and by enjoying the movies "City Mouse, Country Mouse," and "Stuart Little."

     October 9th has been designated as WalkBike to School Day.  We realize that it is too far for some students to walk or bike.  As a result, the staff at Chadron Primary School has set aside from 7:30-7:50 A.M. to walk around the high school track.  We would like to invite all parents, students, and staff to come walk at that time.

   Chadron Primary School continues to participate in the Box Top and the Campbell's Soup Labels's for Education Programs.  Your child's teacher will send home a blank sheet each month on which you can paste the Box Tops that you have collected.  When the page is filled, please send it back to school with your child.  Please make certain that the Box Top has not expired, as the company will not accept them.
     Each Box Top is worth $.10 in cash.  We have already submitted over $200 in Box Tops.  In the past, the money has primarily been used for our end of the year activities for our students to purchase prizes, pizza, etc.  Thank you for your contributions.
     We are in the process of creating a page on which you can also paste Campbell's Soup Labels for Education E-Labels.  When the page is filled, please send it back to school with your child.  We will send home new sheets periodically, but not necessarily one each month.  The E-Labels are each worth 1 point and are used to order items from the Campbell's Soup Catalog.  We have primarily used the labels to purchase playground equipment.  Thanks for collecting these labels.

Ms. Michelle Carlson presents plaque to Mrs. Linda Rishcling for Chadron Primary School.

   Michelle Carlson, a Nebraska Jump Rope for Heart Association Youth Market Director, presented an award to Chadron Primary School for its contribution of $6,525.89 during the JRFH Campaign in October of last school year.  The Primary School was the #7 Top Fund Raiser in the Central and Western Nebraska Region.
