Red Ribbon week is October 21st - October 25th. This year, as in years past, Chadron Middle School will celebrate by allowing students to "dress-up" on Monday-Thursday. Please note that the student dress code still applies, so students need to wear shoes and must dress modestly (according to the dress code).
The themes for this year's dress-up days are as follows:Monday - Pajama Day
Tuesday - Twin Day
Chadron Middle School celebrated the end of the first quarter with an assembly on Friday afternoon. Students were awarded Perfect Attendance awards and Cardinal Effort awards. To earn Perfect Attendance, students had to maintain an unblemished attendance record for the entire quarter (no absences or tardies). Cardinal Effort awards are given to two students from each class that demonstrated excellent effort throughout the quarter. Teachers from each grade level select the Cardinal Effort recipients.
It was a great 1st quarter!
Do to a lack of numbers on the Hot Springs team, the 8th grade football game that was scheduled to be played on Saturday, October 11th has been cancelled. The 7th grade football game will be played as scheduled.
The next 8th grade football game will be on Saturday, October 19th at 10:30 vs. Gordon/Rushville at the CHS field.
It is really hard to believe, but the 1st Quarter ends on Friday, October 11th. We have had a tremendous first quarter and our students have worked really hard to meet our expectations of being Safe, Responsible, Respectful, and Doing Their Best. The last Friday School list on September 27th, was the smallest that we have ever seen, so I want to commend our students for their excellent effort!
It's nearly October and that means that it's time for the fall Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments. The purpose of taking MAP assessments in the fall is to get benchmark scores for our students in the areas of math, science, reading, and language arts. When students take MAPs again in the spring, the benchmark scores allows us to measure academic growth of the course of the school year.
Chadron Middle School held its annual 5th grade fun night on 9/20 in the CMS gym. Students played games and completed a scavenger hunt that is designed to help them become more familiar with the middle school and our teachers.
Thank you to Mrs. Kaus and the CMS Student Council for organizing and hosting the event. The students had a great time!

The Middle School Scholastic Book Fair will be held during parent-teacher conferences on September 19th. The books will be set up on the stage in the Middle School Gym. There is a great selection of books for Middle School and High School students, as well as parents. Come and check out the Book Fair. Profits earned go toward new books for the Middle School Library.
The CPS website got an extreme makeover and the new site is up and running. You can check it out at http://www.chadronschools.org/. CPS tech has been working hard to get the new site up and we are very excited about the new look and all of the new features.
The school year is off to a great start! A huge thank you goes out to all of the parents who were able to make it to our open house on August 20th, and we continue to thank you all for the support that you give your students and the school.
