Mr. Rodriguez's 6th grade health class has been studying body systems. Students were assigned a body system to research and asked to create a project that displayed their findings. Some of the information that students were required to include on the project was the name of the body system, the system's function, the parts of the system, and any additional information related to the body system. Below are few examples of the students' work.

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.
