Little Reading Birds

Our little birds are hard at work blending sounds to make words and we are so proud of our Kindergarten students for catching on so quickly!  This group of children was so excited to show off their newly learned skills and we want to encourage their continued success!!  Roll Little Birds - we are so proud of you!

Thank You Delta Kappa Gamma and Salvation Army

Chadron Primary School would like to thank the Sheridan and Dawes County Chapters of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International and The Salvation Army Service Extension Office for the donation of backpacks and supplies to our school.  These backpacks are used for any students who are unable to attain supplies and backpacks on their own.  We are so fortunate to have donations and caring individuals support our schools and students.  Thank You again!!

We are Family!

This first grade bulletin board says it all!!  We are family at Chadron Primary School and the fabulous art work of our young students exhibits our similarities and differences.  Wonderful job kiddos!

Elmo the Eagle Visits

Elmo the Eagle made a visit to Chadron Primary School to promote Homecoming Week at Chadron State College!  The students were thrilled to have Elmo visit lunch and he brought coloring sheet pages for the CSC coloring contest.  The winners at each grade level get a t-shirt and get an invite to ride the Homecoming Parade float with Elmo on September 29th! 

Roll Big and Little Birds

The big birds returned and as always brought lots of smiles to Chadron Primary School.  Some of the football players visited last week and today we had a few softball players.  Our Cardinals Committed group has some outstanding leaders and students who are willing to go above and beyond to be great role models for our young students; we love our lunch time with these student athletes and look forward to their next visit.

Health Screenings

On Friday, September 7th Chadron Primary hosted health screenings for our 1st and 2nd grade students.  Our nurses helped coordinate our AMAZING volunteers from Lions Club and CAPWN Dental.  Ms. Chrissy and a host of other volunteers from the after school program also helped things run smoothly.  Again, thank you so very much for helping to keep our children healthy!

We LOVE Public Schools and We LOVE our People

Our people make the difference and relationships are at the top of our list for making a difference in a child's life.  Whether it is connecting with our students or connecting with one another, we get it done!  A HUGE shout out to all of our educators who "Feel the Love for Public Schools" and Feel the Love for our students!

Thank You Consuming Fire

Chadron Primary would like to thank Donna Gimeson and Consuming Fire School of Dance, Gymnastics, and Fitness for donating water bottles for our students.  We greatly appreciate all of the community support that is shown to our public schools and this is another example of our community members and schools working together.  Thank you again!

More Visitors to the Nest

We were delighted to have members from our high school Cardinals Committed group join us for lunch again.  While our students get so excited about the students visiting, I know our high school students get equally excited to share lunch with our little birds.  These high school students set wonderful examples of behavior and dedication to academics and extracurricular activities and we are so proud to have our students look up to them.  Once again we wish our big birds best of luck on your activities!

Parent Information Night

Please join us for our Parent Information Night where we will cover a variety of topics including our Cardinal Rules, our Title 1 Compact, safety and security procedures, our ACES positive behavior program, and several other items.  We will have sign-in tables for each grade level and have a presentation in the gym for families prior to having parents visit the classrooms.  In classrooms parents will get a preview of how each individual classroom works.  

Lockdown Drill

On Monday, September 10th at 8:30 a.m. Chadron Primary will be conducting our first Lockdown Drill.

We encourage you to visit with your children about what to do in an emergency of this nature.

Busy Days

Chadron Primary School students have been busy within these first two weeks of school.  Students have been reviewing our three Cardinal Rules: 1)Be Safe, 2)Be Respectful, and 3)Be Responsible.  We are learning procedures for classrooms as well as safety procedures.  Students participated in a bus evacuation drill as well as a fire drill this week and Principal Uhing will be reading a safety book that promotes Avoid, Deny, and Defend as we have lockdown drills scheduled for the upcoming month.  Students have been exploring the spaces they may evacuate to in case of emergency evacuations so p
