The 3rd grade classes read the book Beatrice’s Goat by Page McBrier. This is a true story of how the gift of a goat from Heifer International helped to lift Beatrice and her family out of poverty. The students were so moved by the inspiring story, they wanted to do the same. The four classes banded together to raise money. Their goal was to raise $120. They were able to raise $168.50. Thanks to the generosity of our Locke families and the kind-heartedness of our 3rd grade team, we were able to give a goat and 2 flocks of chicks to families in poverty. An outside organization matched the 3rd Grade’s donation.
