Seymour Goodthings has returned to Chadron Primary for another year of watching students follow our Cardinal Rules! You just never know where Seymour will be hiding to watch our littles birds follow the rules here at the nest!
We were very excited to celebrate the accomplishments of our students who earned Cardinals of the Month for November! These students were chosen by their teachers as children who follow the Cardinal rules and are wonderful examples to other students. These kiddos were able to have breakfast in the teachers' lounge with Principal Uhing and we all visited about the above and beyond good choices they had made. Congratulations on your good behavior and we are excited for the amazing choices to come, we are proud of you!
Children from the United Methodist Sunday School Group made a generous donation to Chadron Primary School. Students from this Sunday School Group have been saving their collection money and decided to initiate a campaign they call "Fuel the Kids". These students and their sponsors chose to use this money for students with overdue lunch balances as well as for students who are free/reduced. Our students who qualify for free and reduced meals often like to get extra entrees and the money deposited into their accounts will allow them to do that without the families getting charged. We were
Dawes County Courthouse has a fancy looking Christmas Tree thanks to Chadron Primary students. Courthouse employees invited students down to show off their homemade ornaments and decorate the courthouse. Children were able to take a walking field trip down to Main Street for the event and the students enjoyed their time and were given a candy cane for the walk back to school. Thank you to the Courthouse and to all of the staff who helped get our students there and back safely. When you have a chance, stop by to enjoy the scenery.
Chadron Primary School is excited to launch a day of learning and fun the day before Christmas Break. Each grade level has a variety of hands-on activities designed with our curriculum in mind but centered around holiday themes. Students will rotate between stations designed by teachers and each grade level has specific times and party plans. Here is our request - with so many students and hands-on activities we are asking for volunteers to help in classrooms as we create, move, and learn. While we adore our younger visitors, we do ask that on this date you make arrangements for younger
Thank you to Domino's Pizza of Chadron for hosting our Kindergarten classes for a "field trip" to the store. Each class was able to have their own time to observe food safety and preparation as well as the workings of a restaurant. One of the favorites of the trip was to sample the pizzas they made. Our students were also excited to ride the bus across town as this is the first experience for many and the opportunity to enjoy a few hours of education in addition to curriculum is one our children will not forget. Thank you again to the staff at Domino's Pizza for this wonderful experienc

On Tuesday, Mrs. Landreth’s class participated in a virtual field trip to Morrill Hall in Lincoln, Nebraska. Mrs. Landreth was awarded the Roger’s Scholarship to cover the costs of the program, Animals in the Hall. Prior to the field trip, students worked in teams to create dioramas based on native Nebraskan animals. During the field trip, Ms. Annie guided us around the dioramas at Morrill Hall. We learned about the job of a zoologist, predators, prey and other animals native to our area.
