Thank you to Edison Red Nest III for sharing the history and knowledge of the game of Lacrosse during PE classes this week. Edison shared the origins of this tribal game played by Native Americans and how it was modified by European immigrants to North America to create its current collegiate and professional form.

On Monday April 24th the Wanderlust Cardinals will be hosting a Chadron High and Chadron Middle School Talent Show at 7:00 p.m. in the high school auditorium. The cost will be $5 for adults and $3 for students K-12. The Talent Show will work a bit like “America’s Got Talent.” Contestants will be eliminated in their high school and middle school categories each round, bringing the final round to three contestants each.
On March 15th, twelve FBLA students ventured across the street to attend the first annual American Business Competition at Chadron State College. Since this was the first competition hosted by CSC, Nebraska Council on Economic Education and Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), attendance from other schools in the panhandle was not quite at the level they were hoping for. However, Chadron High and Hay Springs both showed up ready to compete. Students were given one hour to complete a 100 question test in each event.
This is the time of year to start planning for the many year-end events. I thought I'd take the time to share those important dates and times.
Graduation will take place in the high school gym again this year. We do not reserve or block off sections of seats for families. Instead, parents/friends are welcome to enter the gymnasium when it opens at 11:00am and reserve up to 10 seats on the gym floor for the family of each graduating senior. There is additional seating provided in the bleachers.
