Caring for Sharing Food Drive Results
The results of the Caring for Sharing Food Drive class competition are in and it looks like the 8th grade pulled off the win by collecting 634 non-perishable food items. The 6th grade was a close second with 605, followed by the 5th grade with 446 and the 7th grade with 283. The grand total of non-perishable food items that were collected by Chadron Middle School students was 1968 cans! Thank you to all of the students, parents, and partners who donated money and food to this great cause!
In keeping with tradition, the winning class has earned the opportunity to compete against the faculty in a series of games on December 20th, the last day of school before break. This year, instead of a basketball game, the 8th grade has decided that they will compete against the teachers in a "Nothing but Net" Pentathlon competition. Events will include: Volleyball, Badminton, Ping Pong, Deck Tennis, and Eclipse Ball. We will also award students with our end of the quarter Cardinal Effort and Perfect Attendance Awards.
We will run a special schedule on Friday, December 20th so that there is time to play these games. Students will be dismissed to the gym at 12:30 for the "Nothing but Net" events and we will dismiss students for Winter Break at 1:30. Parents are welcomed to attend the event, which promises to be a lot fun for everyone.
