Students at Williams Science and Fine Arts Magnet School are getting a lesson in budgeting and helping their community in the meantime.
Fourth-graders from Miss Mercer and Mrs. Gordon's classes have been collecting money every day, which they then budget so they can buy needed supplies for their adopted families.
