Rocky Knoll Kids for Missions: The end of September your child brought home a photo card with a family on it. This family is heading to Togo, Africa very soon. Stephanie, the mom, is a former student of Mrs. Bankes’. We are very excited to join with them this year for a mission project. Stephanie is a nurse and will be working with the hospital there. We are going to collect “change “ for kids in Togo. Stephanie said that a child there can get hospital care there for about $15 US dollars. So the students and staff are going to collect money and fill a tall container until April and see how many kids we can provide medical care for. Please send in change (dollars won’t be turned down) in to fill our container and help Togo kids.
