  • CMS VERSUS WMS SPIRIT EVENT
    Basketball teams from both middle schools participated in a wonderful spirit event, including the announcement of players at the beginning of the game and a half-time shootout for the fans in the stands. The score, the winner and the loser at each grade level were not important - it was about team building and having fun! These girls will all be joining forces in the next 1 to 2 years when they become Blackhawks!

  • WELCOME TO THE NEXT THOUGHTEXCHANGE STEP
    Recently, parents and community members were invited to answer some questions about enrollment growth and facilities to accommodate growth in our district. This focus was a key concern expressed during the initial Thoughteschange process. Now we are asking everyone, even if you were not able to participate in the first part, to prioritize these ideas to help us understand what matters most to our parents, staff and community members.  For more information and to participate, please click here to assign your stars. By clicking on the preceding link, you will be able to review a selection of thoughts provided by others in the community.  While reviewing thoughts, indicate your priorities by placing stars next to the ideas that are most important to you.  Your time spent engaged in this process is very much appreciated.  Please join the conversation by clicking on the link!

  • NATIONAL BOARD CERTIFIED TEACHER EMILY HAM HONORED
    Salnave Elementary School teacher Emily Ham was honored by the School Board at their meeting on January 27.  She recently obtained National Board Certification, and this official designation is the culmination of a tremendous amount of study, time and effort.  Ms. Ham joins 44 other district teachers who previously obtained their certification.  They worked hard to reach this goal, and our students receive the benefit.  Altogether, over 12% of the district's teachers are now National Board Certified - a larger percentage than the average in districts throughout Washington State - and Washington State continues to place near the top of the country in National Board Certified teachers.  More information concerning the National Board Certification program can be seen here.

  • CHS STUDENT MARIAH GILBERT IS AMAZING!
    KREM 2 and STCU showcases kids who are making a positive impact in their community every year through Credit 2 Kids. Award winners receive $500 which they then donate to school programs of their choice. Mariah Gilbert was honored because she used monies she earned working at Betz, a private facility, and in recycling at CHS to buy less fortunate families Christmas presents. Mariah is an extremely polite, considerate, and hard-working student who truly cares about others. When KREM 2 came to CHS, they interviewed Ms. McGourin about her exemplary student.

  • ONE EXAMPLE OF WHY WE LOVE OUR STUDENTS -
    "WIAA Give Me 5 Star Student of the Month" nominee Aubree Vandine from Cheney Middle School did something amazing. Aubree's coach nominated her for a particularly heartwarming display of sportsmanship, saying the following: "Aubree's 7th grade JV team played another school who had a student with special needs on their team. Aubree wore a special colored jersey so the opposing athlete could better remember who she was guarding. But the part that made it such a great display of sportsmanship was the entire time the other student was guarding Aubree, Aubree was coaching her - taking her hand and showing her where to be, reminding her to run down the court, and helping to make the experience a successful one for her opponent." We are all so proud of the sportsmanship Aubree showed toward a student who needed a little something extra in order to have a positive experience.
