    On Thursday morning our West Plains Chamber honored one student per school for exemplifying one of the PACE character traits. 8th grade student, Hyrum McCombie, was chosen by Westwood staff for the trait of integrity. His teachers noted that Hyrum honors everyone he meets with a spirit and attitude of sincerity and goodness, and can be depended upon to be honest, conscientious, and responsible. Congratulations Hyrum! See Photo

    Sixth graders are using the principles of monarchy, oligarchy, tyranny, and democracy to select and play music for the class, as a way to experience the various forms of government in ancient Greece that led to the development of democracy.  These skits are a fun and engaging way to explore the differences between direct and representative democracy.  In our first skit, our “monarchs” chose to have the class listen to “Let It Go” from
    Frozen and “Stayin Alive” by the Bee Gees.  Not everyone was pleased! See Photo

    The students in Ms. Merante’s class have been busy at work learning about motion and forces. They recently completed
      an Arm Wrestling lab where they had to measure various features of their arms and hands to hypothesize which student would be victorious. After 3 matches, the winners were declared! It was a successful lesson in net forces, unbalanced and balanced forces. The students pictured are JT Syme, Erik Garcia and Connor McCormack in the background. See Photo

    Thursday, the Summit After School Programs from WMS and CMS went to EWU for an exploration field trip. Thanks to the help of the EWU Community Engagement Office and Megan Ford, CHS Site Coordinator, our students received the grand tour of the campus, student life on campus, buildings, and Roos Field.  After a nice snack provided by the EWU Community Engagement Office, the students got to play some games on Roos Field. To end the evening off with a bang, the kids got to share the field and give High Fives to the track and football teams!!! We had some VERY excited kiddos! See Photo

    This year Mrs. Olson's L.A. classes have focused on the four major instructional areas in the English/Language Arts curriculum:
      reading (both literary and informational), writing, speaking and listening, and language. The reading requirement is emphasized both through textbook work and the independent reading program. The writing and language requirements are addressed through responses to various reading and speaking assignments, plus essays in narrative, explanatory, and argumentative modes. The speaking and listening requirements are implemented through frequent speaking assignments, with the listening component a part of every class period and any presentation to the class.  Every assignment this year has been based on a belief in the importance of communicating clearly and thoroughly regarding all reading and writing.

    The Northwest Farm Credit Union has funded a grant for a new program called "Take Root". This collaboration between EWU, 21st Cheney School District Century Community Learning Centers , and Communities in Schools of Spokane County will develop a pilot an ‘After-School Garden-Based & Outdoor Educational Facilitation Course'. This program is designed to provide EWU students opportunities to engage in garden-based & outdoor educational outreach, as well as providing middle school youth at Cheney and Westwood Middle schools the opportunity to learn more about gardening, health and sustainability as well as engage in Outdoor Excursions/Activities such as snow shoeing, nature hikes, kayaking, etc… with a goal of promoting community-service to preserve the environment throughout the academic year. The ultimate goal is to replicate the Take Root After-School Garden-Based and Outdoor Educational program in collaboration with Communities In Schools, in schools across Spokane County. Our hope is to demonstrate the benefits of the Take Root program by increasing environmental stewarship, life skills, and acadmic success of participants. For more information about the Take Root program, contact Dan White at dwhite@cheneysd.org

  • Last summer the Westwood Summer Summit program launched a weather balloon which traveled over 75 miles, and reached a height of over 20 miles into the stratosphere.  Watch the onboard video of this incredible learning experience:  http://youtu.be/BHiAZ9zbOJ8
