Students at Discovery Passage Elementary School want a new playground.

To help make that happen, they have been working hard to put on a carnival for the entire community to enjoy.

Students in grades 3-6 have designed and built their own games plus a bounce-a-rama will be on hand. There will also be a cake walk and a concession.

All proceeds from the Thursday’s carnival, will go towards a new adventure playground for the school. The old playground was demolished after the school district determined the wooden structure was no longer safe for students .

A replacement is up to the school’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC). Last November, the PAC raised $10,000 to put in a small addition to the playground, aimed at older kids, but it took seven years to come up with the money.

Ticket costs for the carnival are: $1 for two games; $5 for 10 games; and $10 for 20 games.

The carnival runs from 4:30-7 p.m.

will also include a basket raffle with beach, baking, sports and movie themes.
