Cardinals Committed

The Primary Building would like to thank Mr. Mack and the Cardinals Committed group from the high school who visited our lunchroom.  These high school students continue to make good choices and set such an amazing example for our little people.  We get so thrilled to have them visit and the connections they make with our students is long lasting.  Thanks again for coming over, we look forward to your next visit!!

Martin Luther King Jr. March

Our children were fortunate to be a part of Chadron State College's annual Martin Luther King Jr. March on Monday, January 16, 2017.  Our students joined with students from CSC, Job Corps, Intermediate, Middle, and High schools on a march up to the CSC Chicoine Center where Dr. David Nesheim and other organizers put on an outstanding program.  We heard from our Superintendent of Schools, as well as other speakers and singers from the Middle and High Schools along with guest speakers from Colorado.  We would like to thank Dr.

Noon Dismissal

Please remember that this Friday (1/20) we will have a 12:00 p.m. dismissal.  We do NOT have Just For Kids afterschool programming on Fridays and our teachers have meetings to attend early so please pick your children up promptly.  Because of the earlier dismissal we also have an altered lunch schedule:

1st Grade: 10:30-11:00 a.m.
Kindergarten:  11:00-11:30 a.m.
2nd Grade:  11:30-11:57 a.m.

Perfect Attendance

These students had Perfect Attendance for the entire 1st Semester of school.  Thank you to all of the families that make this possible.  Being in school and on time is so important for student growth and learning and these students have proven that.  Congratulations on a job well done kiddos, keep up the good work!

Shop with a Cop

Many times the work of others goes unnoticed...  our Chadron Police Department deserves to be recognized for the work they do behind the scenes.  Our officers have supported our schools in many ways; and one of my favorites is their Shop with a Cop program.  Every year our Police Department is given a quite extensive list of names of students who may need a little extra love during the holidays.  This program is funded through generous donations from staff members at Chadron Public Schools along with community members.

Reader's Theater

The Second Grade Students performed their Reader's Theater to Kindergarten Students Wednesday morning and did a wonderful job.  We had a school-wide pajama day and the students were all excited to perform and listen to the plays.  Mrs. Kaus and Mrs. Smith in the library have been working with the second grade classes and it was so exciting to see their hard work turn out so well.

Chadron Primary Food Drive

Chadron Primary School would like to send a HUGE thank you to all of our families that helped contribute to our Food Drive.  In lieu of presents to one another, our teachers asked students to bring canned goods we could take to the local food pantry.  On Tuesday we were able to deliver the food to the church.  Our students were given a tour of the food pantry and able to talk to Mrs. Dagen about how many people these wonderful donations help out year round.  Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your donations!

Cardinals of the Month - December

Once again we had some incredible students selected as Cardinals of the Month!  They continue to exhibit our Cardinal Rules and we are so proud of them!  We enjoyed breakfast in the teachers' lounge before classes started Tuesday morning and we all want to congratulate the students on a job well done.

Kindergarten Christmas Program

Monday night our Kindergarten Students had their Christmas Program at the high school.  Mrs. Dickerson does a wonderful job of coordinating the program and the students did a FABULOUS job!!  Thank you to all of the volunteers who help make this night such a success!!

Mrs. Smith's 7th Grade Readers visit Chadron Primary

This week Mrs. Smith brought her 7th grade students to Chadron Primary so they could share some Ebooks with our Kindergarten classes.  The students were quite excited about having the middle school students come read and the teachers enjoy seeing their former students excel.  Thank you so very much Mrs. Smith for bringing your students over.

Cardinals of the Month - November

Lucky Primary Family

I am one of the "Lucky Ones" who truly enjoys going to work every day... I am surrounded by amazing adults and little people that help make me a better person and the world a better place.  Not every day is full of unicorns and rainbows and during the holiday rush it is often easy to get caught up in the business of life; however, walking into the Primary Building today, I was reminded of how blessed we are.  Every adult and child was greeted by randomly placed sticky notes left as positive affirmations.

Newest Member of the Primary Family

I would like to introduce everyone to the newest member to the Chadron Primary Family....  Seymour Goodthings.  He is very excited to catch our smallest of Cardinals doing great things here in the "nest" and following our Cardinal Rules.  Keep your eyes out for Seymour and continue making good choices.
Seymour had to check out Mrs. Uhing's office before making his way to another spot in the Primary Building

Dawes County Courthouse Tree Decorating

Chadron Primary School students were invited to the Dawes County Courthouse to decorate the tree in the main entry way for the annual Parade of Lights.  Students enjoyed the beautiful November weather as we walked to the courthouse and the children put their hand made ornaments on the tree.  Students were also treated to a candy cane for the return trip to school.  Thank you to the staff at the courthouse; if you are out and about here in town, please stop by the courthouse and take a look at the work of our talented students.  Happy Holidays!

On the Lookout for Lego Bricks

Chadron Primary School and our Parent Involvement group is on the lookout for Lego Bricks... The group is planning a Penny Carnival set for February 17, 2017 and as a part of the games and activities we are seeking new or gently used Lego bricks.  If you would like to purchase and or donate any Lego bricks you can send them with your child or drop them off at the Chadron Primary School Office.  We will be accepting any Lego brick donations from now until the date of the Penny Carnival.
