Congratulations to Claire M., Sam R., Nick W., and Jacob L. for finishing in the top four during the CMS History Bee that was held on Tuesday, January 14th. Claire won the event by being the first to correctly answer five questions. By finishing in the top four, these students qualified for the opportunity to take an online History Bee test, which will determine qualification for the regional competition.

Request For Parents Employed By Federal Agencies
We recently mailed a survey home to parents who may be employed by any Federal agency or on Federal Property. Chadron Public Schools is currently applying for Impact Aid 8003 which helps finance education for our district.
Below is a link to a letter that was written to the parents of 8th grade students. The letter outlines the due dates for major projects that will be assigned during the second semester. This letter was also attached to the students' report card that was sent home on Friday, December 20th. If you have any questions, please contact your student's teacher.
Friday, December 20th was the last day of the first semester at Chadron Public Schools. Like usual, we handed out Perfect Attendance and Cardinal Effort Awards at our end of the quarter assembly. Below are the photos of the students who earned these awards. Congratulations to these students and thank you to all of our students for an outstanding first semester!
On December 19th, students who participate in band and choir performed their winter concert to a packed house of supportive family and friends. The students, who were directed by Mr. Rischling and Mrs. Dickerson, did an outstanding job! Congratulations to all of the students that performed!
At the last Board of Education meeting, the school board granted permission for Chadron Middle School to move forward with its plan to move the playground from its current location on the east side of the building to the west side of the building. The decision to move the playground was born out of the conversations that took place in a series of meetings that Dr. Winchester, Superintendent of Chadron Public Schools, dubbed "The Dream Team".
The Nebraska State Board of Education today named Matthew Blomstedt of Central City the new Nebraska Commissioner of Education.
Blomstedt was selected from a field of four finalists. Blomstedt currently is executive director of the Nebraska Educational Service Unit Coordinating Council. He received a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Higher Education from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln; a Master of Community and Regional Planning from UN-L; and, a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from UN-L.
The results of the Caring for Sharing Food Drive class competition are in and it looks like the 8th grade pulled off the win by collecting 634 non-perishable food items. The 6th grade was a close second with 605, followed by the 5th grade with 446 and the 7th grade with 283. The grand total of non-perishable food items that were collected by Chadron Middle School students was 1968 cans! Thank you to all of the students, parents, and partners who donated money and food to this great cause!
Please note that there has been a change on the district calendar. We will have a full day of school on January 17th, 2014. The 12:00 dismissal that was scheduled for the 17th will now be on January 24th. The change was made to accommodate the Chadron Invitational Wrestling Tournament, which will be held on January 24th & 25th.
