2nd Grade Multicultural Project

The second graders at Chadron Primary hosted a multicultural event this last week as a culminating activity to their multicultural project.  The students in each of the four classrooms split into groups and researched various countries.  They created tri-fold presentations including postcards, important information about the countries, and landmarks as well as salt dough maps of the countries.  The students also brought food from the various countries and enjoyed trying different cuisine.

Thank You CSC Football Players

Chadron Primary would like to extend a HUGE thank you to coach Jeff Larson and members of the CSC Football Team.  They took many hours out of their busy college schedules to volunteer in our Kindergarten Read Naturally Lab.  They had so much fun they often came to school early to visit recess.  Mrs. Hoffman and her Reading group celebrated these volunteers with an electronic book the students helped to create and donuts!!  Thank you again volunteers!

Passport Adventure

International Field Trip without Leaving the Building
The second graders helped create an international travel experience for first graders within our building.  Working in groups, second graders were assigned a country and conducted research.  There was a lot that went into the researching.  Students asked questions and located answers.  Students looked for information about language, clothing, food, holidays, the national flag and other interesting facts.  Their final projects consisted of a tri-fold display and salt dough maps.

Earth Day Clean-Up

Students from Chadron Primary School partnered with Keep Chadron Beautiful to learn about recycling and keeping our community clean.  Classrooms were given missions to promote environmental care and the culminating activity was to clean up around the school buildings.  Thank you Keep Chadron Beautiful for sponsoring these activities and educating our students about the care of Earth.

Book Tasting

To save students from “reading ruts”, the first book tasting was developed for students to "taste" something new.  Instead of feasting on pizza, students were feasting on nonfiction, historical fiction, realistic fiction, mysteries, science fiction, poetry and folklore.How do you “taste” a book? Students received a "menu" for logging their experiences and observations.

We hope to see you!

We will be hosting a Native American Parent Meeting Tuesday, May 9, 2017.  The meeting will be held in the Central Office of Chadron Public Schools and will begin at 3:30 p.m.  We look forward to visiting with you about the education of our Native American students.

Excitement in Mrs. Cogdill's Classroom

We have had an exciting few weeks in Mrs. Cogdill's second grade class.  On April 3, 4, 5, we welcomed 16 baby chicks into the world.  After anxiously waiting for 21 days they finally appeared.  We learned a lot about life science and watched the development of the new baby chicks for 2 and a half weeks.  Our high school FFA animal group came and taught us many things about the chicks.  We appreciated them. The chicks went to their new homes with three second graders.

Last Date for Library

Dear Parents,

With the quickly approaching last day of school, our last checkout in library is going to be May 4th.  We would appreciate it if we could get all library materials returned or paid for by May 4th.  We will be starting our inventory May 5th.  Thank you in advance.

First and Second Grade Spring Music Program

Once again Mrs. Dickerson and her music classes did an AMAZING job of performing.  The first and second graders delighted the audience with their Spring Music Program on April 11th.  The first grade classes did their program about flowers and the second grade classes featured all different types of bugs.  The students worked so hard on memorizing lines and songs and should be congratulated on a job well done.  A huge thank you to all of the work Mrs. Dickerson and her students put into this program as well as the classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, Mrs.


Mrs. Cogdill's 2nd grade classroom has had a few new additions over the past two weeks.  The chicks have hatched and there is a great deal of excitement in the room.  They had a total of 16 chicks and all are doing well.

Challenge Days

Chadron State College hosted their annual Challenge Days for our elementary students.  CSC college students host a variety of stations and games that get kids moving and our Primary students always have such a great time.  We cannot thank everyone involved with the planning of this wonderful event and we look forward to many more activities that bring our schools together.

March Cardinals of the Month

Once again Chadron Primary celebrated some outstanding students with breakfast in the teachers' lounge.  These students were chosen by the classroom teachers as Cardinals of the Month as they exhibit outstanding behavior and follow our three Cardinal Rules:  Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible.  We always enjoy rewarding our students for positive behavior and when you see these children make sure you congratulate them for a job well done!  We are so proud!

Third Quarter Perfect Attendance!!

These students LOVE school so much, they never miss!!  We are down to only a handful of students (and only represented by Kindergarten and 2nd grade) who have had perfect attendance and we want to thank them and their families for making it to school every day so far.  Congratulations on doing a great job, we love seeing these smiling faces every day!
