  • TRAINING EXERCISE HELD AT CHS
    On May 17th the District invited the Cheney Police Department to conduct a training exercise at CHS with narcotic detection canines from the Airway Heights Police Department and the Washington State Department of Corrections. The sweep conducted insured that a drug free environment exists at the high school, as well as providing an excellent opportunity for a multi-agency training. Other similar exercises are expected in the future as part of the partnership between local law enforcement and the Cheney Public Schools.

  • "YOU RAISE ME UP" AWARDS PRESENTED TO STAFF
    Dr. Phil Snowdon led the Cheney Public Schools as Superintendent for the 10 years from 1993 through 2003.  In honor of his service, the Cheney School District provided students the opportunity to recognize any staff member who made a contribution to their success.  Dr. Snowdon knew the impact of receiving a letter from a former student; he began his career as a fifth grade teacher and after he retired he received such a "thank-you" letter, which helped him to fully understand the impact he had made in the lives of his students.  At Staff Recognition Night in May, students presented their letters of gratitude to the outstanding staff members in their lives.  
    Student Camber Moad presented Mrs. Erin Williams with her letter representing all elementary schools.  She said, in part, "Not only did she teach me a lot, she inspired me that if you're not the best at something, with a little bit of help you can do it!" 
    Mrs. Martha Meyers-Harris, of Cheney Middle School, received a letter from Rachel Hove, saying "After seeing how she changed my life, I have been inspired to be a counselor.  She helped me to believe in myself ... most of all she was always there when I needed her most."  
    Keo Beebe read her letter to Cheney High School teacher Ms. Jenna Tamura, saying "Ms. T helped me a lot all through high school.  She was there for me and always made me laugh.  You rock, Ms. T!"  Congratulations to all of these extraordinary teachers!

  • DISTRICT ELEMENTARY SECRETARIES RECEIVE AWARD
    The District's elementary secretaries received the Annette Granier Team Collaboration Award at last Wednesday's Staff Appreciation Night.  There could not have been anyone more deserving than these amazing individuals:  Snowdon Elementary's Holly Rasmussen, Sunset Elementary's Andrew Borck, Betz secretary Chris Buob, Jennifer Pohl from Salnave, and Windsor Elementary secretary Charmaine Gural.  The letter nominating them not only included praise for their ability to handle all of their various daily responsibilities, but cited the warm welcome they provide, and how they continually reduce the stress for our families.  The nomination concluded with "Interaction with these wonderful people often highlights my day!"  Be sure to congratulate them on your next visit to one of our elementary schools!
