On December 11th, 8th grade students participated in the Chadron High School’s FBLA Monopoly game. The purpose of the game was to teach students about the value of money and commerce. The FBLA club did an excellent job organizing the event and it was a lot of fun. Thank you to all of the local businesses that set up booths for the game and to FBLA for including the 8th graders.
On December 18th, we will begin construction in room 103 in the middle school. Room 103 is the old Industrial Technology room and it is being converted into a flexible space where students will be able to gather on cold mornings and during lunch when it is too cold to go outside. The room will also be available for teachers to use during the school day.
