Lock Down Drill
Chadron Middle School will run a lock down drill on March 13th at 9:30 a.m. Please do not pick up students during this time as no one will be allowed to leave and enter the building.
Read Across America Day/Dr. Seuss B-Day
On March 2nd, students from Miss Dobry’s and Mrs. Waugh’s 2nd period reading classes read Dr. Seuss classics to children at the Child Development Center, Chadron Primary School, and 4th graders at Chadron Intermediate School. This was a great opportunity for our middle school students to be positive role models to the younger kids in the community and it was a lot of fun.

Chadron Middle School students will begin NeSA testing on March 26th. It is very important that all of our students are in school during the testing window to ensure that we don’t have to pull them from their regular classes to make up the tests that they missed. Thank you for your support.
