SECOND ANNUAL KIDS' DAY AT EWU
On Friday, November 13th, many 4th and 5th graders from across the District participated in Kids' Day at Eastern Washington University. Their day began with a welcome in Showalter Hall at 10:00 a.m. They heard a "Become Your Own Hero" presentation, focusing on citizenship, perseverance, attitude, commitment to goals, empathy, establishing dreams, and being part of a team. Students then took a campus walk to Reese Court, where they were able to see the EWU vs. Eastern Oregon Women's Basketball game. They cheered along with Swoop and the EWU cheerleaders, danced to music, and several students even participated in half-time relays. After lunch, students participated in team building exercises in the Fieldhouse. What a successful event in partnership with EWU!
PRIME TIME FAMILY READING AT SUNSET
For 6 weeks, 17 families at Sunset Elementary were engaged in Prime Time Family Reading at the Airway Heights Library. The library, in partnership with Humanities Washington, offered this program. Each week families came together for dinner and a chance to discuss some great books with themes such as courage, dreams, and perseverance. Families took home three books to read together each week. They commented about how this gave them a chance to spend time together as a family to have some great conversations about books, as well as get to know all the Airway Heights Library has to offer. At the "graduation" ceremony, each Sunset student received a certificate and a bag of books to keep.
HONORING BOARD MEMBER RICHARD MOUNT
On Wednesday, November 18th, community and staff members gathered at Cheney Middle School following the School Board meeting to honor Richard Mount's 18 years of service to the students of the Cheney Public Schools. CMS had power, and even though their homes may not have had power, people turned out to thank him personally for all he has done over the years. The Nutrition Services staff and Chef Klinkenberg provided the refreshments, and School Board President Henry Browne, Vice-President Suzanne Dolle, and Board member Marcie Estrellado spoke individually about Mr. Mount's contributions to the District. We know that he will still be an active member of our school community. Thank you so much, Mr. Mount!
