Earth Day-Activities

Thanks to the organizational efforts of Keep Chadron Beautiful's Executive Director Susan Hucke and Jackie Dailey, CIS student found a way to help their community.  Mrs. Dailey called a few weeks ago with an idea to clean up around our school, park and Crestview.  Keep Chadron Beautiful provided the trash bags and the kids provided the labor.  They had a great time, picked up a lot of trash and left things better than they were found.  It was a great lesson on community service and caring for our planet.

Thanks to all the adults that helped with this project.

Math in law enforcement

"Math Madness" Behind the Badge!Our "Math Madness" guest on March 30th was Officer Mick Downing of the Nebraska State Patrol.  He shared with us how he uses math in law enforcement.  One of the ways he uses math is when he gives a ticket to someone who has broken a law.  Josie put a list of fines on the smart board.  Then Officer Downing had the students figure the fine for the "crime."  We had some pretty serious offenders with pretty hefty fines. Here is an example of how a ticket was figured:
