End of 1st Quarter Awards

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!

8th Grade Football vs. Hot Springs Cancelled

End of 1st Quarter

Dear Parents,

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!

Save The Date - Jump Rope for Heart

Fall MAPs Testing Schedule for Chadron Middle School

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.

5th Grade Fun Night!

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!
