Creative Dining Donation

Chadron Primary School wants to extend a HUGE thank you to the employees of Creative Dining Services located on the Chadron State College campus!!  Creative Dining employees collected and donated school supplies to Chadron Primary and recently presented those to Mrs. Uhing.  So many of our students will benefit from this AMAZING donation!!  Thank you again for your continued support!

Mrs. Ferguson's Math Action

The first grade students in Mrs. Ferguson's class have been working hard on learning the doubles math facts.  The children have been rapping their way to learning and are doing so well.  It is exciting to see their learning - Keep up the GREAT work!!!

Mrs. Claussen-Smith's Beach Party

Mrs. Claussen-Smith's homeroom students have been working so very hard on following the classroom and Cardinal Rules, this afternoon they celebrated their success with a beach party.  Students were even able to make their own banana splits!  Thank you to the families that help support positive behavior in our classrooms and school and for the help you offer to make celebrations like this so memorable.  Happy Friday!!

Cardinals Committed

Chadron Primary was lucky to have a few AMAZING student athletes join some of our students for lunch!!  Six students from Chadron High School's Cardinals Committed group came over to our building to eat lunch and visit with our students.  First graders and kindergarten students were incredibly excited about meeting and talking with these "Super Stars"!!  It was great to see these wonderful role models interact with our younger students and show examples of making good choices.


Mrs. Hendrickson's Language group worked on combining sentences and ended their language time with some journaling.  The students really seem to enjoy a time to express their thoughts.  Even after the bell rang, many students were still writing away!  How exciting to see this love of learning taking place in 2nd grade!!

Our beloved Ms. Charla

The students were so very excited to see our beloved Ms. Charla!!  We are wishing her a continued speedy recovery and cannot wait until she is back with us!

Elmo the Eagle

Chadron State College's Elmo Eagle came to visit our lunchroom.  Elmo shared the college is hosting a coloring contest and the winners get to ride on the Homecoming float with Elmo!!  Students make sure you turn those back in to your classroom teachers by Monday (9/26).

Color Wheel FUN!

Last week Mrs. Cogdill's class learned about the Primary and Secondary colors.  The students used paint with the three Primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) to create their own color wheels.  It was such a fun project to watch!!

Artists in Action

Mrs. Sandstrom's students showed their creative sides as they made fall tree pictures - what a FUN activity!!

National Dog Day

We at Chadron Primary LOVE our four legged friends and we celebrate National Dog Day today; however, we ask you leave your dogs and other pets at home as you come to drop off children and pick them up after school.  In order to keep all of our children safe we are asking you to keep your animals off campus.  There may be times the classroom and JFK invite you to bring animals; and we thank you for your consideration on this matter.  


A HUGE thank you to United Way of Western Nebraska, Chadrad, and everyone who contributed to the Stuff the Bus campaign!!  Many of our students benefited from your generous support.
