The Arcanum High School Student Council took the pop tabs that they had collected down to the Pop-tab Pull-Ooza earlier this month. They collected 517.44 pounds, which was twice what they collected last year! Thank you to everyone who helped with the collection. All proceeds go to The Ronald McDonald House which uses the pop tabs to turn into money to allow families to stay at the Ronald McDonald House free of charge while their sick children are in the hospital. The AHS Student Council will continue this service project next year, so they encourage everyone to save their pop tabs over the summer. What an excellent job by all the students and their families! Go Trojans!
