Upcoming CMS Playground Fundraisers

We have made a lot of progress towards funding the CMS Playground Project this year.  In only 3-months, we have raised nearly $6000 towards our $30,000 goal.  Thank you to all who have helped support this effort and we look forward to continuing progress over the summer.

Below is a list of upcoming fundraisers that will benefit the CMS Playground Project. We hope that you can come out to support a good cause.

CMS Student Council Donates to CMS Playground Project

On April 29th, Chadron Middle School's Student Council presented Mr. Dressel with a $1000 check for the CMS Playground project.  The student council raised the money over the course of the school year through concession sales at school dances and the annual candy gram sale that takes place over Valentine's Day.

CMS would like to thank the student council for their generous donation to their school and for all of the hard work that they put into making CMS a great school for their fellow students.
