  • DISTRICT SCHOOL BUS INSPECTION EXCEPTIONAL
    The district's bus fleet recently was evaluated in the annual inspection by the Washington State Patrol, and scored a perfect 100%!  We are fortunate to have especially talented bus mechanics who made this happen.  The State Superintendent of Public Instruction sent a letter to the district congratulating us for once again receiving outstanding results on this inspection.  We greatly appreciate those who maintain our buses in such an exemplary manner!  They work hard every day to keep our students safe.

  • "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 Skyler Hanson presented Ms. Lin Frederick with his letter representing all elementary schools.  He said, in part, "Thank you for filling me with so much love for others and teaching me how to be a good student.  I was always happy about you being there for all of us and supporting us in any way you could." 
    Ms. Barbara Olson, of Westwood Middle School, received a letter from Zach Oswald, saying "Mrs. Olson has encouraged me to read, read, and read some more.  She allows us to explore our minds with book responses."  
    Elica Starr presented Cheney High School teacher Mr. Steve Arensmeyer with a glowing letter of appreciation, thanking him for "his dedication to helping students learn and succeed" and commenting, "He has 'raised us' into independent thinkers, mindful of the past and prepared to take on the future, and I will forever be grateful for his influence."  Congratulations to all of these extraordinary teachers!
