Los Alamos Middle School teacher Dana Kline and her hawks soar to new heights raising funds to benefit others through reading.
The Hawks read their way to success for “Read to Feed,” earning a total of $453.65.
“I am so proud of my kids, especially the committee itself,” Kline said. “It was totally voluntary and kids gave up their lunches to write school announcements, make posters and visit other classrooms. I’m really proud, not just with how much money we raised, but with the motivation and
commitment my seventh grade students have.”
Kline knows that some people think students this age can’t think beyond their own needs, but she proves that isn’t true.
Once the team collected all the money, a committee of seventh graders who have been working on the fundraiser for seven weeks, chose which animals to purchase.
“With that money, Heifer International will purchase one llama, one pig, one flock each of ducks, geese and chickens, two hives of bees and three bunnies,” Kline said.
