“It is looking like there will be little to no change in per pupil funding for the 2012/2013 school year,” said Colville School District Superintendent Ken Emmil. “However, federal program funding is up in the air right now and there are hints that there will be cuts for next year.

Vining continues his solid pitching

Colville girls test Chewelah boys

April 25, 2012

Chewelah tennis had a light week last week with the girls losing 3-2 in Colville and the boys winning 3-2 and the girls falling 4-1 to Reardan High School at home in non-leagsue boys and girls tennis action.
In an unusual move against Colville, Chewelah forfeited the no. 1 and no. 2 singles matches to Colville and instead the Cougars top boy’s doubles team of Tyler Monasmith and David Vilchiz played Colville’s top singles players and one of the top Class 1A girl’s doubles tandems in the state in Liselotte Doggen and Erin Little in an entertaining and well played doubles’ match.
