Before Thanksgiving when warm weather surrounded us, Chadron Primary students enjoyed a walking field trip down to the Dawes County Courthouse. This has been an annual tradition where our students make ornaments and decorate a courthouse tree. Our students are given a candy cane treat and enjoy the walk along with creating such a warm holiday setting. We hope you can make it to the courthouse to check out this beautiful tree along with the other trees the courthouse is showcasing.
Last week, four classes participated in writing letters to members of the military who are serving overseas. These classes were Miss Collins', Miss Jackson's, and Mrs. K. Rischling's Kindergarten classes and Mrs. Hendrickson’s Second grade class. Each student wrote a letter thanking the Veteran for their service along with drawing a picture. The classes hope these letters will bring some joy to the Veterans as the holiday season approaches.
Over the past couple of months we have been celebrating some outstanding students at Chadron Primary School. These students have been honored with a Cardinal of the Month breakfast complete with donuts and breakfast sandwiches. ☺️ We are so proud of the way these young Cardinals follow the Cardinal Way and set wonderful examples for fellow students. Theses students get chosen by their teachers to be honored at these breakfasts and we are so happy to celebrate with them!
On Halloween Chadron Primary Students enjoyed the beautiful weather and walked over to Chadron State College. Students were able to see the newly renovated COIL building (Center of Innovative Learning) ~ formerly the Math and Science Building. Students were able to wear their costumes and enjoyed many stations that featured sciene/math demonstrations in the form of making gummy worms, viewing bones, sifting for rocks & fossils, story time, a planetarium viewing, and trick or treating as well as many other fun-filled activities that engaged students. We want to thank Dr.
We have added new signage to our playground in order to alert our community to supervision. Our School hours are from 8:00 a.m. - 3:15 a.m.
On Friday, October 28 Mrs. Hendrickson and Mrs. Sandstrom’s 2nd grade classrooms participated in some spooky, Science fun. The two teachers joined together to create Growing Foam Monsters. Liquid expanding foam and food coloring were used to make the monsters. Kids then used pipe cleaners and googly eyes to personalize each monster. It was a messy and fun way to kickstart our Halloween festivities!!
Chadron Primary School would like to thank Game Changer for the fabulous comic book donation to our First Grade students. Adam and Megan were so thoughtful to have our kiddos in mind and for the fabulous donation. Students were so excited to get the comic books and we really appreciate their kindness.
Chadron Primary School students were treated to a visit from our Chadron Volunteer Fire Department this month. We originally had planned to welcome firefighters during Fire Prevention Week in early October; however, the crew was called out to fight a fire that same afternoon. We thank the Fire Department for all of their work and for making time to visit our students. We also want to thank the Fire Department for the water bottles; every student received a water bottle and were thrilled! It is always so exciting to have them visit and to check out all of the equipment. We cannot thank
Chadron Primary students get so excited to welcome and see their friends from the high school and when these students are our Cardinals Committed students, our students light up! These high school students set such good examples for our younger students and when they take time to visit our young kiddos we are so thankful. We remind our young students that our Cardinals Committed students make sure to get homework done, listen to their parents and teachers, eat healthy, and follow the Cardinal Way. Good Luck as you head into sub-district and district competitions Cardinals!
Reminder: Our last session of Summer Enrichment will be August 1st-4th from 8:00-11:45 at Chadron Primary School. This is only for students that signed up and attended in May/June. See you soon!
