Support the CMS Playground Project with Boxtops for Education

Chadron Middle School is in the process of fundraising and seeking grant opportunities to move the middle school playground to west side of the building.  Relocating the playground will allow the school to make better use of the existing outdoor space while enhancing student safety during the day and improving parking during activities that are held at the school.  For more information about this project, please click here.

Box Tops for Education is a great way for everyone in the community to support this project.  All you need to do is clip box tops off of products that participate in Box Tops for Education (click this link to see a Complete List of Products) and bring them the to the middle school office.  It really is amazing how quickly these add up.  If you know people who might like to help out in this way, but don't keep up with the CMS Principal Blog or CMS Facebook page, please let them know about our project.  Word of mouth is a powerful fundraising tool!

Thank you for your support and if you have questions about Box Tops for Education, please call the Chadron Middle School office at 432-0708.
