Chadron Primary School Will Collect Food for Local Food Pantry


     The Chadron Primary School Students will begin collecting non-perishable food items beginning on Monday, December 2nd and will conclude the collection on December 19th.  In lieu of having students purchase a gift for a gift exchange with their classmates at their class parties on December 20th, students are encouraged to bring food items to put under our Christmas tree.  The food items that are received will be donated to a local food pantry and will be distributed to families in the community of Chadron who are in need.
     The project has been a huge success in the past.  As always, your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Primary Students Participate in the "Festival of Trees"


      Chadron Primary Students have been busy making Christmas ornaments to decorate the tree in the entry way of the Dawes County Courthouse.  On Friday, November 22, each student had the opportunity to hang his/her "special" ornament on the tree.  This is the second year that the K-2 students have participated in the event.
     The public is welcome to view all of the trees at the courthouse beginning at their Open House on Friday, December 6, after the "Parade of Lights" until 8:00 P.M.  The decorated trees will be available to view until December 27th.
