(Submitted by Chadron FFA Officers)
During May 16-18th, the newly formed Chadron FFA Chapter officer's of 2013-2014 traveled east to Aurora, Nebraska. Prior to the trip we were fortunate with numerous community supporters in fundraising dollars to help support our newly formed FFA organization. With high hopes in returning with new knowledge and skills in getting our program up and running we were pleased with the outcome.
Distracted Driving AwarenessThe AP Statistics class was given the challenge of running an experiment to determine if there is statistical evidence as to whether or not a number of distractions really impacted driving ability. The class was first asked to research different distractions one may encounter while driving in order to create a hypotheses as to what they felt would occur according to previous experiments. The students chose to impose four different factors (distracted conversation, beer goggles, texting, and eating) on their participants during their trials.
The Chadron High Wildlife class trekked to Chadron State Park this week, compliments of guest speaker, Shelley Steffl. She joined our class to explain her job and new project (native seed blocks) she's has been working on. Blocks were designed to help with reforestation, because of last fall's wildfires. This unique idea provides for seed dispersal over rough terrain, while encased in a "natural" fertilized cocoon by nomadic animals.

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.
