November 30,

UNWNRD News Release
Phone: (308) 432-6190

 Local Winners with Artistic Talent Selected in UNWNRD Poster Contest

(Chadron, NE)
The Upper Niobrara White Natural Resources District (UNWNRD) is pleased to announce the regional winners of the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) Poster Contest, themed “Healthy Soils are Full of Life!“
First place winners are as follows:
·      Lucas Riley Ambrose, Chadron Middle School, grade 8 Brooklyn Hoffmann, Chadron Intermediate School, grade 4 Lillian Johndreau, Chadron Intermediate School,  grade 3.
      The local second place winners are Jace Paopao, grade 4 and Sophie Watson, grade 3 at Chadron Intermediate                                                                              School.

Sheri Daniels, UNWNRD Conservation Program Coordinator, commends all the individual students that participated this fall putting their creative effort into action and completing incredibly meaningful artwork. “It’s exciting to see young, local artists developing their creativity and using their own thoughts to design posters about Healthy Soils!”

The topic of the contest evolves each year to go along with the National Stewardship Week theme. One winner is selected in each of these divisions, K-1; 2-3; 4-6; 7-9; 10-12. The winners from each District were sent to the Nebraska Association of Resources Districts state competition where Lucas Riley Ambrose took first place statewide! His poster will be judged in January at the national competition in Nashville, Tennessee.

Typically, teachers bring the poster contest to their classrooms and encourage their students to compete. But if individual students want to participate outside of the classroom, contact your local Natural Resources District for information.  The contest is open to all students in grades kindergarten through 12.

Congrats to Riley Ambrose for winning the State
NRD Poster Contest for the 4th year in a row!!!

2016-17 Chadron Middle School NeSA Results

After a long embargo period, the Nebraska Department of Education has released the 2016-17 NeSA scores. We are so proud of our students for the outstanding job that they did on their tests and we are proud of our teachers for preparing our students.

Chadron Middle School out performed the state average at every grade level and in every subject on the 2016-17 NeSA test. Two areas of strength for Chadron Middle School were on the mathematics and science assessments where over 80% of students in each grade level met or exceeded proficiency standards.

2016-17 was the first year that new English-Language Arts (ELA) test was administered. In addition, Chadron Middle School implemented a new Reading/Language Arts curriculum. Typically, scores go down when a new test is administered and when a new curriculum is adopted. That said, our students still out performed the state. This is a testament to the alignment work and training that our ELA teachers and Mrs. Moore did before fully implementing the new curriculum. It also speaks to the effort that our students put into their studies and the excellent that support that they get from their parents.

Again, congratulations to our students and teachers for their excellent performance!
