Raffle Winner!!

Congratulations to James Hardy the winner of our Lego Raffle - his guess of 240 was only two off from the actual amount of Legos at 238.  James, his wife Mandi, and son Damian were all on hand to accept the winnings and pose for a picture.  James said he had help in guessing from Damian so they will take part of their prize money to buy a Lego set for home.  Congratulations James and thanks to everyone who came and supported our Penny Carnival.  We took in cash donations and a total of 4,483 pennies!  This money will be used to fund next year's event; again, thank you so much for your support of Chadron Primary School!

Penny Carnival FUN!!!

Chadron Primary School would like to extend a HUGE thank you to the families, staff members, volunteers, and businesses who made our 2nd Annual Penny Carnival a success!!  The Parent Involvement group met and began planning this fall and through the generous donations from businesses and volunteers we were able to have a fun filled evening.  This year's theme was "We Stick Together Like Legos" and families enjoyed games, snacks, and fellowship.  Once again, thank you to everyone who planned or participated in this event.

Mrs. Larson’s Class Breaks Out!!

On Valentine’s Day, Mrs. Larson’s class participated in a “Break Out”.  Students were given a scenario in which they had to follow clues in the room and work together to beat the clock.  The goal was to find the combinations for 5 locks in order to help Froggy open the box.  Fortunately for Froggy, the students were successful!  Great Job, Mrs. Larson’s Class!!

Thank You Board Members!

Chadron Primary School would like to send a special thank you to Board Members Amanda Bannan, Tom Menke, and Sandy Roes for taking time out of their busy schedules to come read to our students.  Media Specialist Cathy Kaus organized the event for the night of Parent/Teacher Conferences and we were certainly excited to have board members in our schools interacting with our children.  Again, thank you to Mrs. Kaus and board members for all you do to make Chadron Public Schools such an AMAZING place!!

Strategic Planning for CPS Activities - Wednesday, Feb. 21 @ 6:30p

The Chadron community is invited to attend a strategic planning meeting to be held at Central Office on Feb. 21st @ 6:30p. The meeting will focus on Chadron Public Schools Activities.

This strategic planning meeting will be similar to the strategic planning meetings that were held a few years ago regarding Fine Arts. The results of those meetings were fruitful and ultimately led to more music and art opportunities for our students.

Cardinals of the Month - January

These students were able to enjoy breakfast as they were honored as our Cardinals of the Month for January.  They were chosen by their teachers as wonderful examples of students who follow the Cardinal Rules of 1) Be Safe, 2) Be Respectful, and 3) Be Responsible.  It is always so much fun to visit with and enjoy the company of these outstanding students.  Thank you boys and girls for making such good choices and being leaders here in the Nest!  Way to go Little Birds!!
