Resurrection School sixth-grade teacher Mrs. Bikjorn kicks off each school year with a lesson on stewardship and religion, discussing what even the smallest donation can mean to those less fortunate. She then challenges her students to put those theories into action.
Every “Quarter Wednesday” students voluntarily donate pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. Even 7th and 8th graders, who were previously involved in the program, continue to donate and participate. By Christmastime, the students choose the organization they want to contribute to. This year, just before Easter, Resurrection sixth graders were proud to give $455 to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
