Knox Walk 2022

ArushaTimes News, Upcoming Events

The Knox Walk is just a week away!
First up, let’s pray for a beautiful sunny day so that we can enjoy our 5km walk to Queen’s Park. A few reminders as we head into the home stretch:
Fundraising pages: If you have not yet set up your child(ren)’s fundraising page(s), you can do so at knox-walk-2022.raisely.com. Each JKCS student is asked to raise $175 for the Knox Walk! This long weekend could be a good opportunity to make and sell crafts or cookies, connect with church friends, and email your aunt across the country!
Wear RED: Students, parent walkers, and staff should all wear a red tshirt for the Knox Walk. A PE shirt is a great choice, but any red shirt will do. PE tshirts in child and adult sizes are available at the elementary office for just $10 each. All walkers should dress for whatever weather is expected that day: wear a raincoat if it’s raining, wear sunscreen and a hat if it’s sunny. We will be walking rain or shine!

Parent volunteers: There is a need for additional parent support on the day of the walk. If you are able to help at either campus please follow the link below. Huge thanks to everyone who has already signed up, we will be in touch with the refreshment, Queen’s Park crew, and crossing guard volunteers personally next week. Parent walkers, simply meet in the gym at your respective campus and find the class you are walking with!

Prizes: Every year we have fun prizes like gift cards, AirPods, and class pizza parties. But this year, to celebrate our first walk together in two years, students are most excited to witness Mr Rodgers and Mr Wasik getting their heads shaved if we reach our goal of $100,000. Help them reach their goal!
Secondary Student Council has offered two additional prizes to the secondary class that raises the most money: 100 spirit points and a free casual day! Thank you, student council!
Safety and Neighbourly Behaviour: The elementary campus will be helped across busy intersections by members of the New Westminster Police Department bike patrol! Staff and parent walkers will supervise each class. Students are reminded to only walk on the sidewalk (staying off our neighbour’s lawns), listen to teacher direction, and represent JKCS and Christ in our neighbourhoods.
If you have any questions or concerns please connect with Arusha in the development office at 604.522.1410 or avegt@johnknoxbc.org. Thank you for supporting the Knox Walk!
