Saturday’s highlights

I abandoned the blog for a day off Friday, but now it's Monday and I'm back with some highlights from Saturday's Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has two interesting stories. The Central Valley School district houses the Council Closet in Barker High School. The closet provides used clothing, shoes and other items to students in need.

At Pasadena Park Elementary, students got the chance to vote on a new rock climbing wall for the playground earlier this year. The wall is now installed and students have been eagerly climbing all over it. The new equipment was purchased by the school's Parent Teacher Organization.

Correspondent Deborah Chan has a touching column on her struggle with breast cancer. Correspondent Steve Christilaw wrote about the Central Valley High School cross country team, which recently won the state championship.
