March is Reading Month, and Burns Park students are celebrating by “reading to feed.”
The students will take pledges and participate in a fundraiser for Heifer International, which supplies families in third-world countries with livestock such as cows, chickens, rabbits and bees.
The school kicked off their fundraiser with an assembly that featured teachers and principal Dr. Virginia Bell in farm animal costumes and a $500 donation toward the fundraiser from Delta Dental.
