These students were chosen by their classroom teachers as children who exemplify our three Cardinal Rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Be Respectful, and 3. Be Responsible. They were honored at our Cardinal of the Month breakfast in the teachers' lounge. Congratulations kiddos and keep up the great work!
Mrs. Ferguson's First Grade students created some wonderful pictures of a farmer with a hay rack. They had an example; however, this was all done free handed. Such creative work from these hard working first graders.
Chadron Primary students were treated to a visit from Cardinals Committed softball players. The players took time out of their lunch hour to come have lunch and visit with our students. The little Cardinals want to wish our softball girls GOOD LUCK at districts which are hosted here in Chadron today (10/5) and tomorrow (10/6). We hope families can go and support our Cardinals.
Chadron Primary School will have a contest to help collect Box Tops for Education. We will do two contest one in the fall and one in the spring.

"I wanted to take a moment to send out a quick and HUGE THANK YOU to each and every person who made the Penny Wars Fundraiser a success! Without the help from the CPS staff, principals, students, parents, and community members, we NEVER would have raised $2814 for the Kubo family. I know without a doubt that the money you all raised has not only lifted a piece of the financial burden that they are feeling, but it has raised their spirits knowing that they have a community that is backing them in the battle that Barb and the family are currently going through.
Chadron State College's Elmo Eagle recently visited Chadron Primary School ~ he joined a couple of classes during lunch and then visited individual Kindergarten classes.

Thank you Chadron State College and Elmo!

Chadron Primary School would like to extend a HUGE thank you to Creative Dining Services. Deb Kuskie organized a school supply drive and the employees of Creative Dining were able to donate a large amount of supplies to the Primary School. These supplies will be able to help students in need and we greatly appreciate the kindness and generosity shown. Thank you again!!
Primary School Students were treated to an amazing musical performance sponsored by Chadron State College. Todd Green plays over 30 string, flute, and percussion instruments from all over the world. His custom-built electronics system allows him to layer instrument sounds as he plays and in effect turns him into a high-tech one-man-band of World Music. His concert features original music inspired by more than a half dozen cultures in the Middle East, Asia, South America, and Africa. We hope you can join us for his public performance:
Mrs. Page and Mrs. Sandstrom took their students out and about last week to help pick up trash. The students found a great deal of trash to pick up around the football stadium and were able to help out by cleaning up. A HUGE thank you to these two 2nd grade classes for excellent citizenship ~ a job well done!!
The August 21st eclipse may be over but the 2nd graders used their library time to further explore the event by programing Ozobot robots to demonstrate how the eclipse occurred. Students used OzoCodes to create the elliptical orbit of the moon. Students were engaged and inspired when the topic came alive after successfully programming the Ozobot robots!

Please join us Tuesday, September 12, 2017 for our Parent Information Night from 5:00 - 7:00p.m. This is unlike the Meet and Greet where you could drop in and out of classrooms throughout the building in that we will have scheduled times for each grade level. While we enjoy seeing your students every day, this meeting is just for parents, thank you for your consideration. Ms. Uhing will begin by having all families of the designated classes join in the gym for a brief review of some things that pertain to all grades.
Chadron Public School students at all four buildings are challenged to raise money to offset costs to the Steve Kubo family who are coping with medical treatments and expenses for a member of their family. Steve Kubo is a long time employee of Chadron Public Schools and works in all four buildings as well as drives bus for many of our student activities and field trips.
Patriot Day happens every year and is observed as the National Day of Service and Remembrance. It lands on September 11th of each year in memory of the 2,977 killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks in 2001. A bill to make a national day of mourning on September 11th was introduced in the U.S. House on October 25, 2001, but it wasn’t actually declared as Patriot Day until 2002. Today, the American flag is flown at half-staff at the White House as well as at all U.S. government buildings.
On Monday, August 21, 2017 Chadron Public Schools will host a Solar Eclipse Viewing and Sack Lunch for our students.

We look forward to sharing this experience with our students!
