  • DISTRICT FEATURED IN WASHINGTON GROWN VIDEO
    Cheney Public Schools implemented a childhood obesity prevention initiative in 2011 that has created a culture of healthy eating and healthier lifestyles. Our Back to Scratch school kitchens provide children with a healthy entrée, fresh fruits, and vegetables every day. Our research shows that the changes we have implemented have resulted in BMI rates dropping; however, more importantly we know that healthy children do better in school. Check out the video produced by Washington Grown to be aired on our local KSPS television station on February 2nd at 7:30 p.m. http://www.wagrown.com/episodes-and-clips/KDOP8JNwheE. It features our Cheney Middle School students and staff at approximately 18:40 into the program.
