  • Congratulations McKnight!

    Through your generosity in brining money for our penny war, we were able to raise $2,514.80 for Highmark's Caring Place - that is awesome! Since Highmark matches all donations, that means that we raised over $5,000! Thank you so much to everyone who participated. McKnight is truly the best - we've got the greatest school by far!
