TERRACE HEIGHTS, Wash.-- The East Valley
School District is getting some help as they build the new Terrace Heights
The local PTA presented a 90-thousand
dollar check to the district to pay for a new playground.
They already started construction in
anticipation of the check.
The district says the money is a huge
help because they didn't have enough in the budget to pay for the playground
"This is just another example of the
types of parents and community that we have in East Valley and stepping up and
making a difference for our children," said East Valley Superintendent
The PTA raised the money over several
years mostly from sales of cookie dough.
As for the new school, the district says they play to open it in January
