BENTON MIDDLE COLLECTS "TABS FOR TOTS"
Students at Benton Middle School have been collecting a lot of pop tops. Just look at all of the bags of soda can tabs surrounding Landry Ray and Kayla Cassidy.
The two girls came up with the idea to raise money for Carson Braun and donate it to the Ronald McDonald House, next to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. The duo wrote a proposal for "Tabs for Tots" and took it to the administration at Benton Middle School. It received their full support.
Landry and Kayla then put their plan into action, gathering plastic containers for the tabs and coming up with a friendly homeroom competition to see which one could collect the most "Tabs for Tots." Competition was fierce; after all, the top three would win donut parties.
In the end, Mrs. Benoit's homeroom dominated, collecting 73 pounds' worth of tabs. Mr. Colvin and Mr. Matthews' classes tied for second place, with four pounds of tabs each; and Mrs. Carr's homeroom came in third, collecting two pounds of tabs.
That is a lot of Coke tabs. Most importantly, they will amount to a generous donation to Ronald McDonald House in honor of Carson Braun. Way to go, Landry and Kayla for coming up with such a great idea and to Benton Middle School for helping out in a big way!
