On Tuesday, November 21st Chadron Primary students walked down to Dawes County Courthouse to decorate the Christmas Tree featured in the foyer. The children made handmade ornaments and enjoyed the nice weather as they ventured down for the fun. The children were also given a candy cane to enjoy. Thank you Dawes County Courthouse employees for inviting our students to enjoy the season!
Lockdown DrillDrills are not life-threatening situations, however we use them to practice moving to a secure room, locking and/or barricading doors, making alternative escape plans, and gathering objects of opportunity for weapons.
The most important part of our drills, is the student discussions and practice of safety procedures and protocols with our teachers.
Lockdown is called when it is believed there is a threat or hazard inside the school building.
Girl Scout Troops #10283 and #10286 came to Chadron Primary this past Saturday to work on a project toward earning their Bronze Awards Chadron Girl Scouts Hannah Jamison and Gillian Conway were joined by Lillie Allen from Crawford.

The Girl Scouts have created some rules to go with the Buddy Bench. Thank you Girl Scouts for your community service project and for thinking of Chadron Primary students.
