It's nearly October and that means that it's time for the fall Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments. The purpose of taking MAP assessments in the fall is to get benchmark scores for our students in the areas of math, science, reading, and language arts. When students take MAPs again in the spring, the benchmark scores allows us to measure academic growth of the course of the school year.
Chadron Middle School held its annual 5th grade fun night on 9/20 in the CMS gym. Students played games and completed a scavenger hunt that is designed to help them become more familiar with the middle school and our teachers.
Thank you to Mrs. Kaus and the CMS Student Council for organizing and hosting the event. The students had a great time!

The Middle School Scholastic Book Fair will be held during parent-teacher conferences on September 19th. The books will be set up on the stage in the Middle School Gym. There is a great selection of books for Middle School and High School students, as well as parents. Come and check out the Book Fair. Profits earned go toward new books for the Middle School Library.
The CPS website got an extreme makeover and the new site is up and running. You can check it out at http://www.chadronschools.org/. CPS tech has been working hard to get the new site up and we are very excited about the new look and all of the new features.
The school year is off to a great start! A huge thank you goes out to all of the parents who were able to make it to our open house on August 20th, and we continue to thank you all for the support that you give your students and the school.

Two years ago, Chadron Public Schools received a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) grant from the State of Nebraska. The Nebraska BLAST program was implemented last year with a focus on space and continued this school year with an emphasis on robotics.
