Congratulations to all of our Spelling and Geography Bee contestants for qualifying for the school level Bees. To qualify for the school level Bees, students must have one of the top three scores in their grade level on the written Geography and Spelling Bee tests.
A big high five goes out to our Dawes County Spelling Bee finalists: Lucy, Luke and Brendilou (school champ) and to our top three Geography Bee finishers: Aubrey, Caden and Aidan (school champion). Aidan will take the online Geography Bee test to try to qualify for the State competition.
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.
If possible, we ask that 5th and 7th grade parents come to conferences between 2 PM and 5 PM and 6th and 8th grade parents come to conferences between 5 PM and 8 PM. 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. All teachers will be available for conferences from 2 PM to 8 PM.
7th and 8th grade boy's basketball vs. Hot Springs has been rescheduled to Saturday, February11th at 9:30 and 11:00 in the CMS Gym.
Terri Lemmon, UNL Extension Assistant for 4-H and Youth, met with 7th and 8th grade students to discuss the importance of career education. Mrs. Lemmon discussed an opportunity for 8th grade students called 'Next Chapter', which is a career exploration program designed for 8th-12th grade students. Information about Next Chapter can be found at the bottom of the page.

CMS had another successful holiday food drive! The 6th grade class collected the most non-perishable food items with 1096. 5th grade edged out the 7th grade for 2nd place by three cans and the 8th grade class took 4th place. Thank you to all of the students, families, community members and businesses that donated to our food drive effort!

NPPD set up 11 Makerspace labs in the CMS library on 11/28. Mrs. Waugh's 4th block, 8th grade class was the first to try out the labs and it looked like a lot of fun! CMS will have the Makerspace labs available for student use until December 16th. We invite parents to stop by and check it out. I think that you will be amazed at the technology that students have the opportunity to work with.
Mrs. Kaus wrote and received a $500 grant from the Western Library System. The grant was written to create a Makerspace lab in the CMS Library. The grant money will be added to the $1300 donation from the Chadron High School class of 1966 to purchase Makerspace furniture and supplies.
We are excited to move forward with the CMS Library Makerspace and we look forward to students enjoying the space and seeing them create and explore.
