Members of the Chadron State College Football Team have been volunteering their time to help out in our Read Naturally Lab. These gentlemen visit our Primary Building every week to listen to our kindergarten students read and assist them in reading fluency and comprehension. We also have a dedicated set of parents who volunteer their time as well. Thank you Parents, Coach Larson, and CSC Football!

If you would like to purchase and or donate any bricks you can send them with your child or drop them off at the Chadron Primary School Office. We will be accepting any donations from now until the date of our Penny Carnival.
NO SCHOOL for Chadron Public Schools Tuesday (Jan. 24th) due to inclement weather. Stay home, stay safe, read a great book, work on some math facts, and PLAY!!
What a delight to have a group of first grade readers share with me some of their new vocabulary. These words are quite incredible when you consider these kiddos are 6 & 7 years old!! We are so excited about our new Wonders Reading curriculum and how much progress our students are making. Here are the first graders rocking the vocabulary cards and definitions in my office: splendid, special, relief, appearance, predicament, determined, and feature. WOWZA!!
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!!
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.
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.
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!

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.
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 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!
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.
