I wanted to inform you about a few assemblies that are coming up during the week of November 7th and November 14th. In an effort to protect instructional time, we typically don’t have many assemblies during the school year, however we had the opportunity to bring a couple of outstanding presenters into the school this month and I felt it was a good opportunity for our students.
On Wednesday, November 9th, our 7th and 8th grade students will attend a presentation from Trooper Chuck Elly (retired). Trooper Elly presented to our 7th and 8th grade students two years ago on cyberbullying, sexting and online predators. He did an amazing job then and will present on the same topics this year. The presentation will be at 10 AM in the CHS auditorium.
Also, Chadron Middle School will host our annual Veteran’s Day assembly on Friday, November 11th. The program will begin at 10 AM in the CHS auditorium and it is open to the public. As in years past, 8th grade students from Mrs. Traphagan’s social studies class will MC the hour-long assembly.
Last, Quinton Aaron, who played “Big Mike” in the movie The Blind Side, will be here on Monday, November 14th to talk to our students about bullying. The 3rd-8th grade presentation will begin at 10 AM in the CHS auditorium. There is no direct cost to the school, however they ask that students try to sell one $10 ticket to help cover travel costs and to support the foundation. Tickets will be entered into a drawing and the winner will win a dinner with Quinton Aaron on Friday, November 18th. Students should bring the money and the ticket stub to the office by Thursday, November 10th. Tickets were sent home with students today (November 7th).
We are excited to provide our students with these opportunities and we encourage parents to talk to their students about what they learned during the assemblies. If you have any questions about any of the upcoming events, please let me know.
