Leighton Fourth Graders Recognized for Love of Reading

Long-time educator Norma Barnes retired from the district several years ago, but her support of her former school continues.

She annually donates books to the school library as part of a grant she received from Walmart.

This year the fourth grade reading awards were given to Alexander (Sasha) Loayza and Kate Cloonan.

They are joined in the celebration of the recognition by Principal Julie Burger (far right front row) and fourth grade teachers Jessica Bowman and Terri Fear.
