CMS will host Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, February 8th from 2-8 PM in the CMS Gym. CMS will have a 1:30 dismissal on that day. The rest of the district will have a regular schedule.
In an effort to minimize wait times we are ask that parents try to attend at the following times:
2:00-4:30 - 5th and 7th grade parents
4:30-5:00 - Teacher Dinner Break
5:00-8:00 - 6th and 8th grade parents
That said, we welcome and appreciate parent attendance at any time and teaches will be available from 2 PM - 8 PM. Please note that shared staff (Art and Music) will be available at CMS from 3:20-5:30 before they have to leave for CHS Parent-Teacher Conferences.
6th grade parents, Mr. Fernandez sent home a letter explaining that he will be gone on that day. If you would like to speak with him, you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will also have computers/devices available for parents to take the AdvancED parent survey on that night. AdvancED is our district's accrediting organization and we are up for our 5-year school improvement review next fall. Part of that process includes collecting perception data from parents, students and teachers. We appreciate your participation in the survey.

By Heather Berry - Chadron TeamMates Coordinator
January 1st marks the start of National Mentoring Month. Nationwide, programs are honoring mentors for their service and the impact they’re making on youth.
This Friday, January 12th, thirty-seven individuals from our community will be recognized for their time and commitment to the Chadron TeamMates Mentoring Program. Chadron TeamMates Mentors will be recognized at halftime of the Chadron High Boys Basketball game, scheduled for 7 p.m.
TeamMates is always looking for more adult volunteers (mentors) who want to build a positive relationship with a student in order to help them reach their full potential. You can start mentoring anytime during the school year. By volunteering just one time a week, you could make a difference in the life of a child.
Students (mentees) can be nominated one of three ways. They can be nominated by a parent, a school staff member, or self-nomination. TeamMates is not just for “at-risk” youth. All youth can benefit from a mentoring relationship. Whether in a formal relationship such as TeamMates or an informal relationship such as a neighbor or relative, we believe everyone needs a positive role model to provide guidance and wisdom. The role of a mentor is not to be a tutor or a counselor, but to encourage and support the strengths and talents of their mentee.
For more information on the TeamMates program or how you can become a mentor, please contact Heather Barry at 308-432-0708.
