Mr. Nick Dressel
The CMS dance that was scheduled on April 13th has been cancelled due to the number of students that will be out of town for Easter break. We are looking at other dates in April and May to reschedule.
Box Tops DriveAsk your parents, grandparents, neighbors, aunts and uncles, cousins to save their Box Tops and bring them to Mrs. Summers in the middle school office. The Drive will run through May 2, but students, families and community members can bring them in at any time. Funds generated from box tops will fund our student rewards program next school year.
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. Prize packages will include cash, food gift certificates, movie passes, etc. for those who place in the top three.
Like other states, Nebraska has state symbols (state bird, flower, fish, etc.). However, Nebraska does not have a state reptile, but this is your chance to change that. Click on the link to vote for your favorite Nebraska reptile. https://outdoornebraska.gov/reptilevote/

Below is the spring testing schedule for Chadron Middle School. As you can see, spring testing is a very busy time and scheduling all of the required tests takes us most of the month April. Student attendance is a key piece to helping testing run smooth. Grade levels are scheduled for certain tests during specific blocks of time during the day. When students miss their scheduled testing block, they have to make it up during the scheduled make up days, which means that they will miss class. This is not ideal, but necessary to meet testing requirements.
Spring Dental Days at Chadron Primary, Intermediate, and Middle Schools include dental screening and Fluoride Varnish Treatments are scheduled for the following dates and times:

Thursday, March 30, beginning at 3:15 PM in the Library at Chadron Primary School

Chadron Middle School will host our spring Parent Teacher Conferences on February 9th from 2:00-8:00 in the CMS Gym. To accommodate for PTCs, CMS will have a 1:30 dismissal on February 9th.

We understand that some parents have children in different grades at CMS and that work schedules may be not be flexible, so these are only suggested times.
