Finch Elementary would be renovated if the Levy/Bond passes.

A quick plug for the Spokane Schools Levy and Bond vote that is due on March 10: this is not a new tax! Please vote YES for both measures because:

• All of the new buildings are adhering to Green Building standards, including recycling of materials and re-using materials from the old buildings in our new schools.

• They’re remodeling schools in urban areas, versus abandoning them to buy up open space outside of town to build new schools.

• They have an apprenticeship program in partnership with the building trades and SCC, and are part of the SCC effort to prepare people in skilled trades to work on LEED-certified and green/sustainable building projects.

Oh yeah, it’s great for kids too. More info at: yesforspokaneschools.org
