Hop for Leukemia/Jump for a Cause
Each year McKnight students participate in a fundraising activity during one integrated arts day. In the past, our students participated in the Hop for Leukemia which is sponsored through the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. We are very proud of the fact that we were the top fund-raising school in Western Pennsylvania for over 15 years! Recently, our students have taken part in Jump for a Cause which benefits North Hills Community Outreach.
The Shining Knights is a community service group made up of a group of students who participate in monthly service projects to help our community. Students are inspired to become active in and strengthen their community through service.
