THANK YOU ~ Chadron Kiwanis

 Chadron Primary School would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Chadron Kiwanis for the Thanksgiving Meals they offered to our "Backpack" Families.  The Chadron Kiwanis group takes care of these families by providing food for our children every weekend in the form of "backpack" meals with non-perishable foods and now for Thanksgiving they have provided a complete meal.  They were helped in part by a generous donation from United Way but locally the Kiwanis group deserves the credit!

Spread Joy, Not COVID

Kids Caring at Christmas


 Dear Parents/Guardians,

     The staff at Chadron Primary School have decided that instead of having students purchase a gift for a gift exchange with their classmates at their class Christmas parties December 22nd, students are encouraged to bring non perishable foods to put under our Christmas tree.  On the back side is a list of suggested items. The food items that are received will be donated to a local food pantry and will be distributed to families in our community who are in need.  

     If your child wants to bring a food item to school, 

we will be collecting these food items from 

December 1st thru December 18th. Thank you for your help in making our “Kids Caring at Christmas” Project a success.

Thinking of Sunshine Days...

 With a blast of cold weather and snowflakes in the air, I take a moment to go back to Friday's incredible weather with sunshine and warmth.  Mrs. Dunbar's class was able to enjoy the fresh air and write sight words with sidewalk chalk.  They even had some recess fun with the parachute!  The pictures she shared can help us all to remember a happy time with sunshine days...

Sidewalk Chalk on a Beautiful Fall Day

 On this beautiful fall day Mrs. Bounous and her class enjoyed the great outdoors with some sidewalk chalk fun!  What a wonderful end to the day and a great addition to the front of Chadron Primary School!  Thanks Mrs. Bounous for the creative welcome to our school ~ from rainbows, to unicorns, to a Komodo dragon, to a cardinal... we had it all.

Cardinals of the Month

Due to our COVID protocols, our Cardinals of the Month have not been able to have a special breakfast with Principal Uhing.  Instead, students have had the opportunity to collect Cardinal Coupons throughout the month and then choose a "Reward" based on the Five Love Languages of Children book (Chapman/Campbell).  Today, three of our students chose their "reward" as "Acts of Service" and volunteered to help out in the lunchroom.  This is an amazing example of The Cardinal Way in action and we were excited to welcome them as helpers!  Thank you Emily F., Parker S., and Ella H., you were amazing help!  We are so proud of all of our Cardinals of the Month, keep up the great examples!

Mask Donation to Chadron Primary

Robin O. (first grader at Chadron Primary School) presented Principal Uhing with a tremendous donation from her Grandma Joyce Hardy!  Grandma Joyce made these masks for our little cardinals and we appreciate them so much; they are just the right size and the kiddos love the designs!  Thank you so much Grandma Joyce for helping keep our students safe!

Chadron Primary School Receives Generous Donation From Walmart

 Chadron Primary School received a generous donation from Walmart in Chadron!  Walmart Manager Adam Gardner presented Chadron Primary School with school supplies including folders, scissors, glue, and many other items students will be able to utilize.  A HUGE thank you for the continued support from our local Walmart and the thoughtfulness of Manager Adam Gardner ~ thank you for thinking of our students and families!
