Special Guest Visits Chadron Primary

Paige - Kindergarten Winner
Afton (1st Grade) & Preston (2nd Grade) Winners


    The students at Chadron Primary School were surprised at lunchtime on Friday, March 21, with a visit from Lucky, a leprechaun from an unspecified location, along with Tracy Shuck and Linda Brownlee from Creative Dining, the provider of our school lunch.
     Mr. Shuck announced the winners of the National Breakfast Week Coloring Contest and Ms. Brownee passed out Lucky Charms Cereal Bars to all of the students.
     The winners of the contest were as follows:  Paige Slingsby - Kindergarten (Mrs. Hoffman);
Afton Jimerson - 1st Grade (Mrs. Gardner); and Preston Russell - 2nd Grade (Mrs. Uhing).  These students were recognized and rewarded with a gift card from Hibbett Sports.
     The students were extremely excited about meeting Lucky and having the opportunity to shake his hand or give him a "high five."  Some of the students asked if Lucky was the leprechaun who messed up their classrooms on St. Patrick's Day, but Mrs. Alcorn confirmed that Lucky was a "good" leprechaun and wouldn't participate in such a prank!
