    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

    The 20th Annual Sixth Grade Bowling Tourney was a huge success, thanks to many teachers and staff that helped support this ongoing tradition. The physical education staff from both middle schools taught students techniques in bowling, how to score, and produced four teams from each school to compete.  Westwood hosted the event which included a professional bowler on a Harley, confetti cannons, a pep band, a DJ, mascots, awards and prizes.  Cheney Middle School walked away with first and second place, while WMS held on to third.  It was a tight race as the top three teams were less than 12 points apart. The winners of the 10 Pin Spirit Award went to the “Pinheads” who defeated the “Strikers” for the second year in a row since the opening of the new middle schools. Congratulations to all! See Photo

    Westwood Middle School's production of
    The Very Unmerry Adventures of Robin Hood was last Friday, and as a director I couldn't have been more proud of everyone who was a part of this show. We had a lot of ups and downs times when we had the kids work until the point of exhaustion, but I could tell their passion for what we were all working towards was worth it. We went through a big director change before this show, and none of us really knew how that was going to affect this show, but the kids all faithfully did their parts to make this show an incredible one! Lastly I would like to point out the amazing work of our 8th graders! Justin Pruett, Elizabeth Golden, Alex Pfaff, and Jonathan Hill all showed how hard they can work. They were great leaders and amazing men and women to work with. Thank you again for your fabulous work! We all will miss you next year! See Photo
