Chadron High sophomore, Veronica Parish, won the Nebraska State Competition for National History Day for her Senior Individual Exhibit titled: God, Government and Roger Williams. The Nebraska contest took place this past weekend on campus at Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln.
I want to take this opportunity to ‘touch base’ on the many activities and events that will take place in the next few weeks for our students. There are not a lot of changes from how we’ve operated in past years but there are a couple of important notes. Graduation will take place in the high school gym this year. We do not reserve or block off sections of seats for families of seniors. Instead, they are welcome to enter the gymnasium when it opens at 8:00am and reserve up to 10 seats on the floor for the graduation ceremony for their families.
So what has Chadron High School been doing lately? ...TESTING!
In case it's been a few years since you've attended high school, one of the biggest challenges faced by every school happens in the spring during required testing. These tests allow us to gather data used to track student progress as well as to make necessary curriculum adjustments. For our parents and other patrons (including State offices), it also serves as one method used in calculating accountability of schools.

Despite many of our students absent for the state FBLA competition last Friday, Chadron High School had an exceptional showing at the Chadron State College Scholastic Day competition. Chadron placed 2nd among the Divsion III schools behind St. Thomas Moore of Rapid City. We had numerous students placing in the top 25% as well as medalists for finishing in the top 3 individual placings.
