CMS Parent Teacher Conferences - Thursday, September 13th

It's hard to believe, but we are already at the mid-quarter and that means Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTC)! CMS will host PTC on Thursday, September 13th 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 reduce lines and minimize wait times we are asking 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.

The school year is off to a great start and we hope to see all of our parents and students on Thursday.

*Friday, September 14th is a 1:30 dismissal district-wide.

NASA@MyLibrary Program


Chadron Public Library will be continuing in the NASA@MyLibrary  program for another grant cycle! We are one of 75 libraries across the nation chosen to participate and we are looking forward to the next year. 

In October Chadron Public Library will be wrapping up this program year with a celebration of International Observe the Moon Night (IOMN) on Saturday October 20th, 2018. NASA's goal for IOMN is to promote interest in lunar studies and to get the public out observing the night sky.

I am writing you today for two reasons. If you are interested, or have students or colleagues that are interested in amateur astronomy, space science, or have a telescope, we would love to have you join us and share your excitement. Attached is a document that details IOMN and our plans for a fun and informal event.

The second reason for writing is that even if you are not able to participate, you can spread the word and help build excitement for this event (see NASA's cool save the date card). As always events are free to the public and open to all.

As part of NASA@MyLibrary, our goal is to host a high profile event that reaches a broad audience of adults and youth. However, NASA also wants us to make an effort to reach out to "underserved" audiences in our community. We are geographically remote and somewhat isolated; that itself makes us underserved, and as we plan and promote our event, we hope that you will consider encouraging your students to participate especially those who may not consider themselves interested in science.

Please contact me by email or phone at 308-432-0531 M-F. Also, we are planning to have volunteers from the Black Hills Astronomical Society join us that evening. Feel free to share this opportunity with those who may be interested. I'd love to have community members join us as volunteers and program leaders.

all the best,
