The grand total for the Knox Walk is: $103,019.35!
Thanks to God for His provision for John Knox Christian School. It was thrilling to reach our goal of $100,000, especially because that meant we would be shaving Mr. Rodgers’ and Mr. Wasik’s heads! Students enjoyed watching their principal’s heads get shaved in chapel this week. A huge thank you to both of these brave staff members for putting their hair on the line for our school!
Thank you to all the students who worked hard to get sponsors for their walkathon, all of our generous donors, encouraging parents, volunteers, and supportive staff members. It is a blessing to use these funds to improve both JKCS campuses and offer a donation to Journey Home.
