Giving back to the community is something we hope to inspire in all of our students. One of the groups in our community which models this principle is the Knights of Columbus associated with St. Luke Parish. For the last several years, the Knights of Columbus have donated funds to support the Special Needs programming at Allendale Public Schools. Cork Horvath, a Knight of Columbus, is seen at right presenting two checks totaling $1,995 to Jennifer Coffey, APS Board President, at the September 8 Board of Education meeting. The Knights of Columbus is an organization devoted to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism to serve their parish, community, and each other in faith.
Allendale Public Schools’ staff and students are very appreciative of the support of organizations like the Knights of Columbus and many others within our community that partner with our schools to help our students have a quality educational experience. Donated funds, like these, are used to purchase learning resources and supplies for our special education classrooms.
An investment in our children is an investment in the future of our community! Thank you Knights of Columbus!
