Chadron Primary would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to our volunteer firefighters who came to our school to visit about fire prevention and safety. Our students always learn a lot and get so excited to hear about the vehicles and see all of the gear used by the firefighters. Students learned about checking the batteries in fire alarms so again, if you have not had conversations at home, please do so about your family's safe meeting spot and proper working fire alarms.

Chadron Primary School would like to extend a HUGE thank you to United Way. Not only did they provide many school supplies through their Stuff the Bus campaign - they also donated a Visa Gift Card to the school so that throughout the year we would be able to help kids in need with school supplies. Thank you to everyone who made school supply and/or monetary donations to this wonderful cause, we GREATLY appreciate it!
These students were chosen by their classroom teachers as children who exemplify our three Cardinal Rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Be Respectful, and 3. Be Responsible. They were honored at our Cardinal of the Month breakfast in the teachers' lounge. Congratulations kiddos and keep up the great work!
Mrs. Ferguson's First Grade students created some wonderful pictures of a farmer with a hay rack. They had an example; however, this was all done free handed. Such creative work from these hard working first graders.
Chadron Primary students were treated to a visit from Cardinals Committed softball players. The players took time out of their lunch hour to come have lunch and visit with our students. The little Cardinals want to wish our softball girls GOOD LUCK at districts which are hosted here in Chadron today (10/5) and tomorrow (10/6). We hope families can go and support our Cardinals.

"I wanted to take a moment to send out a quick and HUGE THANK YOU to each and every person who made the Penny Wars Fundraiser a success! Without the help from the CPS staff, principals, students, parents, and community members, we NEVER would have raised $2814 for the Kubo family. I know without a doubt that the money you all raised has not only lifted a piece of the financial burden that they are feeling, but it has raised their spirits knowing that they have a community that is backing them in the battle that Barb and the family are currently going through.
Chadron State College's Elmo Eagle recently visited Chadron Primary School ~ he joined a couple of classes during lunch and then visited individual Kindergarten classes.

Thank you Chadron State College and Elmo!

Deb Kuskie organized a school supply drive and the employees of Creative Dining were able to donate a large amount of supplies to the Primary School.

Primary School Students were treated to an amazing musical performance sponsored by Chadron State College. Todd Green plays over 30 string, flute, and percussion instruments from all over the world. His custom-built electronics system allows him to layer instrument sounds as he plays and in effect turns him into a high-tech one-man-band of World Music. His concert features original music inspired by more than a half dozen cultures in the Middle East, Asia, South America, and Africa. We hope you can join us for his public performance:
Mrs. Page and Mrs. Sandstrom took their students out and about last week to help pick up trash. The students found a great deal of trash to pick up around the football stadium and were able to help out by cleaning up. A HUGE thank you to these two 2nd grade classes for excellent citizenship ~ a job well done!!
The August 21st eclipse may be over but the 2nd graders used their library time to further explore the event by programing Ozobot robots to demonstrate how the eclipse occurred. Students used OzoCodes to create the elliptical orbit of the moon. Students were engaged and inspired when the topic came alive after successfully programming the Ozobot robots!

While we enjoy seeing your students every day, this meeting is just for parents, thank you for your consideration. Ms. Uhing will begin by having all families of the designated classes join in the gym for a brief review of some things that pertain to all grades.
