Do you know an artist, author, athlete, actor, astrophysicist, or auto mechanic who adores K-5 students? What about a politician, pilot, pediatrician, or police officer who's passionate about literacy? The Read-a-Thon needs local celebrities and community members to serve as guest readers throughout the month of February. The only qualification needed is a desire to foster a love of reading in our Burroughs students. Click the headline for more information.
