Three DECA students at Redmond High School (RHS) are applying the skills they’ve learned in class to the real world.
Friday may be Earth Day, but Christian Culbert has doing been doing his part for the planet for several weeks.
Since school started last September, the sixth-grader from Emily Dickinson Elementary/Explorer Community School in Redmond has biked to and from school every single day this year. Not even the long and wet winter has been enough to stop him — from sun to snow and everything Mother Nature has delivered in between, Christian has pedaled about a mile each way from home to school and back again.
But Christian isn’t the only student who has changed his behavior to be more environmentally friendly. All students at Dickinson/Explorer have been taking steps to be more green.
In honor of Earth Day, the school will have a Wetlands Week from April 25-29 in which students of all grades, along with staff, parents and community members, will work on preserving the wetlands located on the school grounds. Each class will have a one-hour block during the week to do one of the following tasks: Remove invasive plant species, prepare the soil or plant native plants.
On April 22, Redmond High School (RHS) DECA students will be holding a spring market and silent auction to raise money to attend the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Orlando, Fla. later this month.
Local residents have a lot of questions about the high school Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is proposing to build across the street from Louisa May Alcott Elementary School in Redmond.
With so many people working to reverse the aging process, Eileen Allen has accepted it and even embraced it.

From Colorado and Texas to Oregon and Washington, Chris Hoffmann has lived in several states.
And later this month, she will be adding one more to the list. After eight years with the Greater Redmond Chamber of Commerce the Portland, Ore. native is stepping down from her position as president and chief executive officer and retiring in Sarasota, Fla.
Beginning April 15, eight musical acts will battle it out in Redmond for gift certificates, studio time and prestige in the Old Fire House Teen Center’s (OFH) fifth annual Rockathon competition.
