Trooper Elley has presented to thousands of students across the state on a variety of topics that affect kids today. The presentation to our students was made possible by funding from outside of the district.
Late and missing work is a topic that schools deal with on a daily basis and trying to find a balance between compassion and teaching personal responsibility can be difficult. I want to take a moment to list what Chadron Middle School is doing to provide our students with opportunities to turn in late and missing work for credit, while providing clear guidelines to help teach personal responsibility.
National History Day projects were due today and the CMS library has turned into an archive of historical events and people. This year's theme is Leadership & Legacy in History and students could choose any historical event or figure that related to the theme. There some very impressive displays in the library and we are looking forward to seeing student websites and documentaries as well. Well done kids!
