Program of Success

ADDitions
We presently have over 100 ADDitions volunteers who have contributed 3,000 hours toward the Golden School Award administered through OCPS. These  volunteers contribute to our students "Being the Top Producer of Successful Students in the Nation."

After School Tutoring
Third, fourth, and fifth grade students are invited to small group tutoring in reading or math two days a week at no charge.  Following one hour of focused tutoring students attend Enrichment Clubs. Clubs may include: cooking, art, dance, gardening, physical fitness, golf, math games, Legos, and hands on science activities. 

Chess Club
Extended Day Program has started a Chess Club for students in 3rd-5th grade who want to be challenged mentally to become expert chess players and participate in chess tournaments.

Chorus
Third through fifth grade students have the opportunity to showcase their musical abilities on Monday afternoon and performances throughout the year.

Elementary Honor Society
Cheney has formed a chapter of the Elementary Honor Society. Select fourth and fifth grade students sponsor activities such as our food drive, caring for our school garden and Pasta for Pennies.

Family Nights
Every year Cheney invites students and parents to spend an evening exploring the world of literacy, math, and science during our Literacy Night, Math Games & Bingo Night, and STEM Night. 

Lego Robotics 
Students have the opportunity to participate in after school Lego Robotics Club where they can use Legos to build and compete in robotics competitions. 

M.A.G.I.C
The fifth grade students participate in M.A.G.I.C, a program that educates on drug awareness, stranger danger, gun safety, and how to say no to drugs and alcohol.

Recycling
Our students are very conscientious about keeping our environment clean and green. Each classroom has recycle bins an milk cartons and plates are recycled from the cafeteria each day.   Students collect pop tops and donate them to the Ronald McDonald House.  

Saturday Academy
Third, fourth and fifth grade students are participating in Saturday Academic to receive three additional hours of instruction in Reading and Math.

Science Camp
Fifth grade students participate in hands on science inquiry on select Saturdays. Building their own rockets and launching them is the highlight of the camp.

Share Table
During breakfast and lunch students may share specific food items (sealed). If a student does not want a milk or applesauce for example, they may place the item on the Share Table or in the cooler so that others students then may go to the Share Table and get an extra item if they are still hungry. The premise is for our student not only to leave the cafeteria satisfied but for them to understand the need for not wasting food.
