Chadron Primary School Celebrates the End of School!!

Chadron Primary School kicked off Summer Break with some celebrations and CrAzY activities.  We started with honoring our Perfect Attendance students - these kiddos did not miss one day of school - what an achievement and we are so happy to honor them!!  We hope this continues as you pass through the grades.  We then had our ACES End of the Year Celebration. 

Our ACES (All Children Experience Success) is part of our positive behavior program that encourages students to make good decisions.  We were able to get donations from business, individuals, and families and we cannot THANK YOU ALL enough!!!  Our students earned Cardinal Coupons throughout the school year for going above and beyond following our Cardinal Rules and those coupons were drawn for both small and large prizes so that we could honor all of the efforts put in by students. 

Then, on the last day of school we concluded the year with some Break Out Box fun.  Mrs. Kaus and Mrs. Smith helped facilitate a series of clues, puzzles, and solutions so the students could unlock the mystery box that contained the "pies".  This led to the final fun which was the Pie in the Face Fundraiser...5 staff members were "chosen" to compete in getting their money buckets filled to help with our ACES celebration.  Mr. Horst and Mr. Patrick were the two "winners" and two students were drawn to become the pie throwers.  Principal Uhing was so excited to come in 3rd place as she thought she was going to miss the pie in the face; however, Mr. Patrick didn't allow that to happen!  😊

The students had a GRAND time and we concluded the last day of school with a Community Picnic on the practice football field.  We would like to thank everyone who contributed to our End of Year celebrations.  Thank you to Mrs. Kaus & Mrs. Smith for the Breakout Box coordination, Chadron Middle School students who helped manage our student groups, Chadron High School Cardinals Committed students who helped supervise classes and played field day games, Chadron Middle School Student Council for hosting the picnic and a big thank you to the staff, students, & families of Chadron Primary for another OUTSTANDING year!!  We hope you have a FABULOUS Summer - stay safe, read, write, do math, and PLAY!!  Hugs to you all and see you in the FALL - School starts August 15th.

Chadron Community Hospital (CCH) Dietary Drawing Contest Winners

Sadie Chesley, age 8, Mayci Sprock, age 7, and Kayden Kvistad, age 8, are our Dietary Drawing contest winners!  To celebrate National Nutrition Month in March the dietary department at CCH&HS decided to hold a drawing contest for the students at the Chadron Primary School.  Students were asked to draw themselves enjoying their favorite healthy food and show us how it made them feel.  Three winners were selected by our dietary department employees and each of those winners received a bag of goodies including a pen, a notepad, a pack of postcards and a sheet of postage stamps that feature their drawing!  The Primary School and CCH also received a sheet of each of the students stamps to use.  The students drawings are on display in the CCH&HS cafeteria.  Great job kids, keep up the healthy eating habits!

2018 Graduates Visit Chadron Primary School

Chadron Primary School welcomed the 2018 graduates as they walked the halls in caps and gowns to celebrate their success.  The graduates carried pennants that expressed their plans: military/workforce/ higher education... Our littlest birds lined the hallways and gave them signs along with chanting C-H-S!  We wish our graduates the best of luck in their future endeavors and hope they visit the nest to share of their adventures!  CONGRATULATIONS Class of 2018!!
Here comes the Class of 2018

Happy Retirement Ms. Charla!!

It is always so hard to say good-bye...  Ms. Charla will be retiring at the end of this year and not only does she do an amazing job of keeping our building so clean, she also takes the time to offer hugs and encouragement to our littlest birds.  We are so excited for your new adventures Ms. Charla, but we will miss you dearly!!!

Meet the Newest Member of our Chadron Primary Family

We would like to introduce everyone to the newest member of the Chadron Primary Family...  Mrs. Bounous had a healthy baby boy and we are so excited to have them visit the nest!  Congratulations to Mrs. Bounous and her entire family!

Cardinals of the Month - April

These students 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 so they were treated to a breakfast with Ms. Uhing.  They have been chosen by their teachers as Cardinals of the Month because they are great leaders within their classrooms. It is always so much fun to visit with and enjoy the company of these outstanding students.  Way to go kiddos and thank you for making such good choices!!

2nd Grade Field Trip to Mount Rushmore

On Friday, April 27th the second grade classes ventured to Mount Rushmore.  They were able to participate in a Ranger talk, walk on the hiking trail, and get sworn in as Junior Rangers.  The students had a GREAT time and we were so proud of our well behaved children.  We look forward to future opportunities for our students and want to thank all of the parents who joined us for this day!
