2014 Veteran's Day Program

On November 11th, CMS celebrated Veteran's Day with the community at the 6th Annual Veteran's Day Program in the CHS auditorium.  The program was put together by a section of Mrs. Kaus' 8th grade American History students.  The program included the presentation of colors by the Chadron Color Guard, patriotic music from students, an explanation of the history of Veteran's Day, a reading from President Obama's Veteran's Day address, a keynote address from Mr. Don Huls, and a firing tribute at the end of program.

Thank you to Mr. Huls, the Chadron Color Guard, Mr. Rischling and he CHS band, Dr. Margetts, and all of the students that helped put together this wonderful program.  But, most of all, thank you to our Veterans for their service!
