We look forward to our upcoming Red Ribbon Week, we use this week to educate our students about the dangers of drugs. Each day of the week has a different theme and the children (and teachers) enjoy dressing up in honor of the day. The days are as follows:
Monday - "Put a scare on drugs" : Bring your costume to dress up for the afternoon parties
Tuesday - "You'd be crazy to do drugs" : Wear crazy socks and crazy hair
Wednesday - "Jump away from drugs" : Wear red and your jumping shoes - it is also Jump Rope for Heart Day (CSC - PAC Center 3:45-5:15p.m.)
The Chadron State Volleyball team hosted a "Dig Pink" poster contest at Chadron Primary School. The winning classes were treated to a volleyball game, signed volleyball, and a chance to visit with the CSC volleyball players. Thank you Chadron State College for your involvement in our public schools and Congratulations to Mrs. Landreth, Mrs. Ferguson, and Mrs. Page's classes for winning for each of their divisions.

Chadron Primary School would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to the Chadron Volunteer Fire Department for coming to our school during Fire Prevention Week. The students were able to visit with the firefighters and learn about the vehicles, equipment, and fire safety. This year's theme of "Check the Date, Don't Wait" was to encourage families to check smoke detectors in homes!!! The students learned the importance of knowing safe ways to exit their homes and we encourage all families to have an exit plan and meeting spot in case of fires.
Chadron Primary School is excited to team up once again with Keep Chadron Beautiful for the Recycle Bowl. Jackie Dailey from Keep Chadron Beautiful explained to our students what is considered recycling and what should go in the trash. The students also had a relay race to practice their recycling skills. We will begin collecting recycling in our containers next to the fence near the flag pole so please help us out by bringing your recycling to school.
On Friday Mrs. Smith brought some 7th Grade readers to the Primary building to read to our Kindergarten students. Our children were thrilled to have the "big kid" readers join our classes and it is so much fun for our teachers to watch former students excelling!! Thank you to Mrs. Smith and the 7th graders for making our day so special! We look forward to having you visit again.

There is some debate as to the lyrics of the Chadron Fight Song... After a bit of research this is what we have found:
On for Chadron (song is On Wisconsin)On for Chadron,On for Chadron,Fight on for your fame. We will victory, We will victory, A touchdown is our aim.(rah, rah, rah)
On for Chadron, On for Chadron, Fight on for your fame. Fight Cardinals fightAnd we will win this game.
I hope this helps our students and parents so we can cheer loud for our Cardinals!!
Chadron Primary School is happy to announce our annual "Battle of the BOX TOP$". Classrooms compete to see which one can bring in the most boxtops throughout the month of October. The winning class receives a treat from Mrs. Uhing and our school benefits by turning those boxtops into bucks at the end of the year. We have been able to purchase playground balls and equipment with the money we receive from this fantastic program. Please bring your boxtops in bags of 50 or send them with a student you know from the Primary building prior to October 31st.
Chadron Primary School wants to extend a HUGE thank you to the employees of Creative Dining Services located on the Chadron State College campus!! Creative Dining employees collected and donated school supplies to Chadron Primary and recently presented those to Mrs. Uhing. So many of our students will benefit from this AMAZING donation!! Thank you again for your continued support!
