The school year may be over, but the track team could be competing well into May.

The team will continue to practice to prepare for districts on Saturday, May 7, 2016, at Hollister. If track team members advance, they will compete the following Saturday at Sectionals at Ozark.

Coach Gardner thinks the team has a good chance to make it to the state competition. Among the most promising contenders is freshman Evan Smith, who currently has the sixth fastest time in the state in the 1600-meter run.

The Chadwick R-I School district is taking applications for a paraprofessional to assist with our preschool program.

The successful candidate will have at least sixty hours of college credits, nine of which will have to be in early childhood education. The candidate will be patient and kind and willing to assist in all aspects of early childhood education.

To apply for this position, please fill out an application from the school website and return it along with a resume to Principal David Aldrich at P.O. Box 274, Chadwick, MO 65629.

Gretchen competes as part of the USA Gymnastics Excel Program at the platinum level. This year she won first in the all-around, first on beam, first on vault, first on the floor, and second on bars.

Gretchen has been training since she was two years old. She has had to do a lot of traveling and put in a lot of hard work after school to accomplish her goals.

The dairy cattle judging team and horse evaluation team both did very well at the State Competition.

The horses team placed 11th out of 48 teams from all over Missouri. The team included seniors Abbey Stricker, Alex Hicks, Forest Osborn, and Bridget Maggard.

The dairy cattle team included juniors Shelby Weter and Corbin Michael, and sophomores Luke Walker and Trenton Massey.


Summer is a great time for students to catch up on reading or explore nature, but for students looking for something a bit more structured–and something they can put on scholarship applications senior year–getting involved in extensive community service or attending camps and conferences can be a great opportunity.

Weather permitting, the high school and junior high track teams will compete four nights this week. The Chadwick track program has experienced a lot of success this year already and they are enjoying increased community support.

The spring fundraiser was a great success. The money raised will help pay for warm-ups, uniforms, and equipment for the team.  Coach Jenny Gardner said, “On behalf of the whole team, I really want to thank Circle L Designs for the design and production of our Cardinal gear, Jessi Little for helping coordinate the fundraiser, and everyone who supported us through making purchases.”

In addition to financial support, the team welcomes support on the field and encourages fans to come out and show their Cardinal Pride at local track and field events.
