Almost Time to Play at Discovery!

Almost Time to Play at Discovery!

After what feels like an endless winter and wet spring, it's almost time to dry off the equipment at one of our region's favorite playgrounds!

Discovery Playground opens for the season Friday, April 15th. The opening begins with a community party and environmental awareness event that runs from 3-5 pm on the 15th. Spokane Valley's mayor and other city officials will join the community, planting trees near the playground. You can even get your own seedling to plant and gather information about recycling and other ways to be green.

When Loren Broyles, Sensei at Dragon Martial Arts in The Spokane Valley saw what was going on in Japan in wake of the devastating Tsunami he knew he had to do something about it.

"I knew about this wonderful organization called Soles for Souls and I brought the idea to my students and they loved the idea," said Broyles.

The idea is to help collect 100,000 shoes for the people of Japan who may have lost everything in Japan.

Orchard Center Elementary Principal Travis Peterson is about to say goodbye to his hair and hello to a bald head.  Mr. Peterson promised his students he'd get his head shaved if they raised $2,000 in the school's Penny's for Patients fundraiser.  The students, staff and parents rallied and reached their goal an entire day early.

Mr. Peterson gets his new do in an all school assembly Friday at 10:45 am.  Congratulations to the student body for coming through with such a big chunk of change and to Principal Peterson for stepping up to the plate.
