Cheyenne Bowman Wins Second Consecutive State Wrestling Title, Named San Gabriel Valley Tribune Wrestler of the Year and #1 ranked Girls 131 pound Wrestler in America .

PUBLISHED: March 19, 2019 SCNG

Rowland’s Cheyenne Bowman is doing something that only the elite wrestlers can do, make what is supposed to be one of the most difficult sports to master look really easy.

Although only a sophomore, no one in the state was able this season to reach the level of execution she displays in each match. Her matches rarely get past the second period. The results are very consistent, with an official slapping his hand on the mat to indicate that Bowman has pinned another opponent.

National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) is a week-long celebration that was held from March 4 to March 8, 2019, to increase breakfast participation and help spread the message to the community that Rowland Unified School District is serving healthy and tasty breakfasts throughout the District.  On the first day of NSBW, school breakfast was offered for the first time at Oswalt Academy! 

The breakfast kick-off event included a nutrition education table where students learned about the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and the announcement of a breakfast participation competition where the grade level with the highest breakfast participation during NSBW 2019 would win a yogurt parfait party during recess! Oswalt students were very excited about the availability of breakfast at their school and since it has started, more than 150 students each day take advantage of this meal. The Nutrition Services Department at Rowland Unified is committed to providing nutritious and attractive breakfast and lunch meals to all students throughout the District in order to support their education and health.
