This year’s Quarter Wars competition is focused on funding a kitchen garden right next to a school of 300 children in the country of Madagascar. On Tuesday the students learned that they had raised $100 in the first day of the competition. By Wednesday morning we had raised just over $200. At Chapel, Principal Klein challenged the students to double it again. Sure enough—this morning at Chapel the 8th graders announced that our total so far sits at $500! Will we double it again to reach our goal of $1000 for the garden? God is doing amazing things, so we’re very hopeful that our Friday total will bless this effort in a big way.
St. John 8th graders counted the money brought in on Thursday. Through the end of Thursday, our Quarter Wars total already stands at $932! We’ll learn the final amount, including all the coins brought in today, at this afternoon’s pep rally. Together We Rock!
