October Good News From School

Good News From CMS
Dear Parents/Guardians:

The end of the 1st quarter is on October 14th – I can’t believe how fast the time has passed!  We will have our end of the quarter awards assembly at 1:15 on Friday, October 14th in the CMS gym.  Some of the awards that students will receive include:
  • The Cardinal Effort Award, which is given to two students in each grade that have really put forth their best effort in their classes over the course of the quarter.  This award is special because the students’ teachers select the award winners.
  • Perfect Attendance Awards, which are given to students that have not been tardy to class or missed a single day of school over the course of the quarter.
  • The Cardinal Citizenship Award, which is given to students that did not receive a single offense over the course of the entire quarter.  This award includes a special lunch with principal!

Last week, students that did not receive Friday School for missing assignments during the month of September were awarded a “No Homework” ticket.  This ticket can be used in any class to “skip” one homework assignment.  The only catch is that the ticket must be used by the end of October and it cannot be used on major assignments or projects.

Service learning is alive and well at CMS!  Students in the CMS After-School Program took part in campus beautification projects that included painting outdoor trash barrels and oiling and priming the CMS Cardinal on the corner of 6th and Ann Street before Ms. Mohr painted it.  Thank you the CMS After-School staff, all of the students that participated and to Ms. Mohr and Susan Hucke from Keep Chadron Beautiful for their contributions to these projects!  You can see the article and pictures on the school’s website ( or at my Blog page ( )

Congratulations to all of our student athletes on a great fall sports season!  I am very proud of the way that our student athletes represented our school and community.  Also, thank you to all of the parents for the outstanding support that you gave your student athletes and our fall athletic programs!

On November 11th, at 10:15am, Mrs. Kaus’ 4th period 8th grade Social Studies class will host the 3rd annual Veteran’s Day program at the HS Auditorium.  The program will include music, guest speakers, and ceremony designed to honor our Nation’s veterans.  The entire community is invited to attend the program and we hope to see you there.
As always, thank you for supporting your student and the programs at CMS.
