Parent upset with White River School District’s choice of cuts | Enumclaw Letters

  • Mar 16, 2009 at 10:00PM updated Mar 18, 2009 at 4:17PM

As a parent in the White River School District I am concerned about some of the programs being cut to meet the upcoming funding shortfalls. The superintendent, Mr. Lockyer, has presented the cut of ALL elementary P.E., health and music.

The Fant family name has been around this region since early pioneer days.

  • Mar 16, 2009 at 10:00PM

From making your yard more beautiful to enjoy on your “stay-cation” to joining the “grow your own food” movement, you can penny-pinch your way to a great garden.
