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.
We would like to invite everyone to a Parent Involvement Meeting Thursday, November 17th at 5:00 p.m. Our parent group is excited to continue work on planning our Penny Carnival. We have established some committees to assist in the organization of the Penny Carnival and would love to have any other families join in the fun! We look forward to seeing you on Thursday night in the Chadron Primary Library.

Chadron Primary would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all of the families that helped contribute to our Box Top collection. Our school collected a total of 6,912 Box Tops which calculates to over $600.00 for our school to use for playground balls, and other curricular supplies. The children had a fun time competing against other classrooms; however Mrs. Hendrickson's second grade class prevailed as the winners collecting a total of 1, 054 Box Tops. Again - thank you so very much for your help in supporting this great program!
Mrs. Landreth's class has been discussing democracy in Kindergarten and today they exercised their right to vote! They had ballots, voting stations, and will celebrate the vote with a celebration. The children have been excited to learn about voting and having their voices heard. What a fun activity!
