The students at Chadron Primary School had a variety of activities to help celebrate Read Across America. Kindergarten students enjoyed the Q and U wedding while older students had visitors from the Pine Ridge Job Corps and other students did some reading of Seuss books on their own. It was a wonderful day to celebrate literacy and enjoy our guests. Thank you to everyone who visited and participated in our fun!
The second grade classes were able to visit First National Bank of Chadron for a field trip a few weeks ago. First National Bank of Chadron sponsored a math curriculum - "Saving with Mandy and Randy" in which the students learned about saving and spending along with deposits and withdrawals. The children were excited to see how the bank operates and we thank all of the employees of the bank for welcoming our students. Thank you!
Congratulations to James Hardy the winner of our Lego Raffle - his guess of 240 was only two off from the actual amount of Legos at 238. James, his wife Mandi, and son Damian were all on hand to accept the winnings and pose for a picture. James said he had help in guessing from Damian so they will take part of their prize money to buy a Lego set for home. Congratulations James and thanks to everyone who came and supported our Penny Carnival. We took in cash donations and a total of 4,483 pennies! This money will be used to fund next year's event; again, thank you so much for your suppo
Chadron Primary School would like to extend a HUGE thank you to the families, staff members, volunteers, and businesses who made our 2nd Annual Penny Carnival a success!! The Parent Involvement group met and began planning this fall and through the generous donations from businesses and volunteers we were able to have a fun filled evening. This year's theme was "We Stick Together Like Legos" and families enjoyed games, snacks, and fellowship. Once again, thank you to everyone who planned or participated in this event.
Chadron Primary School would like to send a special thank you to Board Members Amanda Bannan, Tom Menke, and Sandy Roes for taking time out of their busy schedules to come read to our students. Media Specialist Cathy Kaus organized the event for the night of Parent/Teacher Conferences and we were certainly excited to have board members in our schools interacting with our children. Again, thank you to Mrs. Kaus and board members for all you do to make Chadron Public Schools such an AMAZING place!!
These students were able to enjoy breakfast as they were honored as our Cardinals of the Month for January. They were chosen by their teachers as wonderful examples of students who follow the Cardinal Rules of 1) Be Safe, 2) Be Respectful, and 3) Be Responsible. It is always so much fun to visit with and enjoy the company of these outstanding students. Thank you boys and girls for making such good choices and being leaders here in the Nest! Way to go Little Birds!!

Chadron Community Church honored our teachers by providing Chadron Primary School with a teachers' lounge make over. Pastor Jason Corbit and his wife Kristy presented the congregation of C3 with the idea to embrace the staff by updating the lounge. An outpouring of support from the congregation and community members helped bring the idea to fruition. Members of the congregation also volunteered their time over the winter break by helping to clean, paint, move furniture, and redo countertops. Chadron Primary School staff was in awe with the unveiling yesterday and were also treated to sn
I could not be more proud of our students and families that contributed to our Kids Caring at Christmas project. We had an incredible outpouring of donations to support our local food pantry. Tuesday afternoon our first and second graders carried bags of canned goods and other nonperishable food items to the food pantry. These items will be loaded into bags to share with families during the holidays and throughout the year. Thank you so very much for your support of this event and we hope you all have a Happy Holiday season. Safe travels and we will see you all January 4th!
Chadron Primary would like to extend a HUGE thank you to an anonymous donor who helped pay it forward on many lunch accounts. The generosity of this family allowed for 18 students to get free and clear lunch balances in addition to some extra money on their accounts. We are so thankful to the kindness and caring of this family and our students and families very grateful as well.
Seymour Goodthings has been quite busy at Chadron Primary watching children do GREAT things! He has been all over the place and has witnessed our students following the Cardinal Rules... This crazy guy is pretty observant of our littlest birds and enjoys his days at the nest.
