Parley’s Park to hold fundraiser
Parley’s Park Elementary School’s Falcon Fun Run is set to take place on Sept. 13. According to the school’s newsletter, each grade will run laps around the school’s field and each lap will be recorded. The school’s parent-teacher association organizes the event. The school hopes to raise $75 per child, or $40,000 for the school, to fund projects such as a full-time art program, a makers space and teacher grants.
The arsenic-and-lead-containing soil has been a contentious issue for the district, which piled it onto the junior high campus in actions that were later discovered to be in violation of a covenant with the Environmental Protection Agency.
