Chadron Students Celebrated the 100th day of school today. Honestly, we all celebrated this year. Thanks for all the great "100 Things Ideas" to all the parents.
The Nebraska Department of Education is allowing us to give some needed breaks due to CoVid. We are planning no school for students January 22, February 16, and March 26. January 22 is our big wrestling meet that normally happens at the College. This year we cannot use the CSC gym because of CoVid. We would like to go ahead and have the meet. This would bring many to our school. We will use both gyms. February 16 will extend a break for students. March 26 is the Quiz Bowl at the Middle School, so this helps with capacity.
Once again these are non-student days.
CIS students wrote Pen Pal letters to residence at Prairie Pines Lodge last week. We can't wait to hear back from them! Thank you Lea Griese for helping to set that up.
Our 3-4 grade students have been celebrating Ten Days of Kindness in our school. We are trying to encourage each other to be kinder and to take care of each other.
Our students have been lonely during the Covid-19 pandemic and we thought that our friends at Crest View were too. It is no fun to be isolated from our friends and family members. We decided to spend our library class time making Christmas cards for them! We hope they enjoy hearing from the kids.
Here are some pictures of our friends in Mrs. Hoffman's 3rd grade class making their holiday art projects.
Due to the circumstances surrounding this year we won't have a Christmas Concert like we have in the past. However, in keeping with the Christmas Spirit, we have an alternative special -Christmas Jammy Day in Music and the Classroom!
The students will be able to dress up in one of these choices:
1) Nice dress clothes2) Christmas clothing 3) Christmas pjs!
This will be split into 3 days.
These would be the days we would dress up:
