Nebraska Loves Public Schools is a team of filmmakers on a mission to showcase positive stories from Nebraska’s public schools.  Nebraska Loves Public Schools is a campaign funded by the Sherwood Foundation.  The group was guided to Chadron Public School after they asked the Nebraska Department of Education to recommend some schools that do a good job with individualized learning.

CHS Competes In Envirothon

The Envirothon is open to all 9-12th grade students and encourages high school students to learn more about the natural environment. The contest challenges students’ knowledge on aquatics, forestry, wildlife, range, soils, land use and natural resource policy or issues and one special topic of national interest. Five-member teams compete in a setting where they learn that cooperation is needed to achieve success.
