Firefighters Visit Chadron Primary School

 Chadron Primary School students were treated to a visit from our Chadron Volunteer Fire Department this month.  We originally had planned to welcome firefighters during Fire Prevention Week in early October; however, the crew was called out to fight a fire that same afternoon.  We thank the Fire Department for all of their work and for making time to visit our students.  We also want to thank the Fire Department for the water bottles; every student received a water bottle and were thrilled!  It is always so exciting to have them visit and to check out all of the equipment.  We cannot thank

Cardinals Committed Students Visit the Primary School

Chadron Primary students get so excited to welcome and see their friends from the high school and when these students are our Cardinals Committed students, our students light up!  These high school students set such good examples for our younger students and when they take time to visit our young kiddos we are so thankful.  We remind our young students that our Cardinals Committed students make sure to get homework done, listen to their parents and teachers, eat healthy, and follow the Cardinal Way.  Good Luck as you head into sub-district and district competitions Cardinals!

 We were able to have the final Cardinal of the Month celebration this week and as with all of the others it did not disappoint.  These students were able to have breakfast with Principal Mack and enjoy some time with other students.  Classroom teachers chose these kiddos as representatives of great choices and following the Cardinal Way.  The examples these students set for other children in the building is fantastic and we are excited to honor each of them with our special breakfast.  Keep making the positive choices kiddos and have a GREAT SUMMER!

2nd Grade Visits Homestead Bank
