Staff and students at Ida Burns Elementary School did a little "clowning around" this week...all in good fun!
They celebrated National Red Nose Day...a national effort to raise awareness and money for children living in poverty.
"At Ida Burns we are a school of character and strive to make a positive difference in the lives of others," says Assistant Principal Tami Burcham.
The students had the opportunity to purchase a red clown nose for $1.00.
For every nose purchased, an impoverished child receives 10 meals, 3 vaccines, and 2 bars of soap.
In total, Ida Burns bought 5,000 meals, 1,500 vaccines, and 1,000 bars of soap!
The students had a great time at their Red Nose celebration.
