Even though we are leaving for the holiday break, the basketball teams will have several games before we return to school on January 5, 2015.
The girls will play at Dora on December 22 at 6PM, and the girls holiday tournament at Mountain Grove starts the day after Christmas.
On January 2, 2015, we will be hosting Pleasant Hope, with girls and boys games.
This will also be a very special night for the community of Chadwick as we will be honoring the ten-year anniversary of Chadwick’s first-ever state championship, won in 2005 by “The Magnificent Seven” Lady Cardinals Basketball Team.

Tuesday: United we stand against bullying! This is Unity Day and all of the students are encouraged to wear orange, the national anti-bullying color.
Wednesday: This day is all about kindness! The high school students are going on their Compassion Day field trips, and the middle schoolers are challenged to commit at least three random acts of kindness.
Thursday: The students have been challenged to make anti-bullying posters and these are due Thursday morning.
Friday: The class with the best poster will get a pizza party!
We really hope all of the students will participate to help end bullying in our school!
