In brief: Seth Woodward plans fun run

Thu., May 2, 2013, midnight

SPOKANE VALLEY – Seth Woodard Elementary in the West Valley School District is having an all-school fun run Friday at 9:30 a.m.

As a fundraising incentive for the students, Principal Tad Heinen has made some promises to the students. If they raise $5,000, Heinen will wear a costume picked out by the students for a whole school day. If they raise $7,500, one student from each class will have a chance to hit Heinen in the face with a cream pie. If they raise $10,000, Heinen will spend a night on the roof of the school.

Students will compete to see who collects the most donations. The individual grand prize winner will get to ride the school float during the Junior Lilac Parade. The classroom that collects the most donations will get a party and five extra minutes at a recess.

Donations are due today.

Call: (509) 921-2160.
