Chadron Primary students are so fortunate to have community support like we have from Main Street Dental!! Dr. Travis Lambert made a generous donation to assist children with their lunch funds. We would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Dr. Lambert and his entire staff at Main Street Dental. When you see him out and about town please extend your gratitude as well. This donation was able to help so many of our students get seconds at lunch or clear unpaid lunch balances for children who may need assistance. Again, we cannot thank you enough Dr. Lambert!!

These students were chosen by their classroom teachers as children who exemplify our three Cardinal Rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Be Respectful, and 3. Be Responsible. They were honored at our Cardinal of the Month breakfast in the teachers' lounge. Congratulations kiddos and keep up the great work!
Mrs. Ferguson's First Grade students created some wonderful pictures of a farmer with a hay rack. They had an example; however, this was all done free handed. Such creative work from these hard working first graders.

"I wanted to take a moment to send out a quick and HUGE THANK YOU to each and every person who made the Penny Wars Fundraiser a success! Without the help from the CPS staff, principals, students, parents, and community members, we NEVER would have raised $2814 for the Kubo family. I know without a doubt that the money you all raised has not only lifted a piece of the financial burden that they are feeling, but it has raised their spirits knowing that they have a community that is backing them in the battle that Barb and the family are currently going through.

Primary School Students were treated to an amazing musical performance sponsored by Chadron State College. Todd Green plays over 30 string, flute, and percussion instruments from all over the world. His custom-built electronics system allows him to layer instrument sounds as he plays and in effect turns him into a high-tech one-man-band of World Music. His concert features original music inspired by more than a half dozen cultures in the Middle East, Asia, South America, and Africa. We hope you can join us for his public performance:
