Cheney Free Press -

The levy is important for outside learning

Letter to the Editor


February 1, 2018

On Tuesday, Feb. 13, a vote for a replacement Educational Programs and Operation Levy will be held. This levy, if passed, will help every single student in the Cheney School District. Since I participate in some activities funded by the levy, I would like to share why it is so important that it passes.

Some of the programs and activities funded by this levy are extracurricular activities such as sports and clubs. I am a heavy participant in these. From cross country to track, from Future Business Leaders of America to school leadership, I’m in it. The levy provides this financial help.

High school is a time to learn, make friends and have fun. If the levy doesn’t pass, much of the time that is spent learning and playing will either be cut entirely or much of the time will be fundraising time.

What is high school without time to let loose in a sport? What is high school without learning outside of the classroom in a club? What is high school with added stress about fundraising? My fondest memories are outside of the classroom, participating in extracurricular activities. Vote yes on the replacement levy.
