MOSES LAKE — Classrooms at Crestview Christian School – which is also the home of the Moses Lake Seventh-day Adventist Church – will get some upgrades in the first week of June. There’s some work to do in the meantime, though, and Crestview students were working on that Friday morning.

The classrooms will get new carpet and paint jobs, with the help of a volunteer group “Rebuild and Restore International.” But it’s going to be more expensive than anticipated, said Crestview principal Melissia Wallen. So the students did their part to raise money by sponsoring a jogathon.

“Toddlers to teens,” Wallen said. Crestview school also has a daycare, and all the kids participated. Kids walked around the playfield as many times as they could, earning money for each lap. About 100 children participated, she said.

“Rebuild and Restore International” is a volunteer mission group sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
