Head over heels...heels over head over science? Easter in September?? Here comes “Physical Science Cottontail hopping down the practice field….”
After watching the videos, you may wonder what is going on at 10th & Cedar in Chadron.

(Submitted by Sydney Blome and Veronica Parish)On Thursday, August 29, Mr. Bradley's trigonometry classes completed their first lab regarding innovative thinking using methods of mathematics and design . Each pair was given a ruler, a roll of scotch tape, scissors, and a single piece of paper. The challenge of this lab was to find the most ideal design, using only the sheet of paper, to support as many bricks as possible.
Culinary arts students are starting the year off with safety and sanitation in the kitchen. These students are engaged in a powder identification activity where they try to identify cooking powders vs. toxic cleaning powders by only look and feel through the bag. The results surprise students and they realize how important it is to identify and label everything in the kitchen.

High School Orientation/iPad Deployment
At the end of each school year, Chadron High School contracts with LifeTrack Services, Inc. to conduct a non-biased senior exit survey. We just received the results for the graduating class of 2013. 54 seniors responded to the survey this year. I've included my notes in comparing these results to the past couple of years. Thank you to all of our seniors for providing this important information which helps provide focus for our efforts for continuous improvement of our school.
One of this summer's projects in the high school is to update our library into a more modern media center. We have recently added opportunities for students to utilize online research tools as well as ebook subscriptions. We hope to have an expanded list of books for students to download and view on ereaders as soon as this fall. In addition to these offerings, we will do some remodeling.
