National History Day Students Near Fundraising Goal

Eight, Chadron Middle School students qualified for the National History Day competition in Washington D.C. after their projects placed in the top two at the state competition in April. Since then the students, parents, and sponsors have been busy trying to raise the $12,000 it will take to get to D.C.  The students are only a couple of thousand dollars away from their goal.  Thank you to everyone that has supported these students.

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.
