Million Tab Challenge

 Throughout the month of January, we Weddington students and families participated in the Million Tab Challenge. This challenge involved collecting pop tabs from soda cans in order to raise funds to support the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte.

The Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte is a “home away from home” for families of seriously ill children from across the Carolinas and the country, who are receiving medical treatment at hospitals in Charlotte, North Carolina.  During short-term or extended hospital stays, the House  provides a safe haven for families to rest, eat and find support from one another and the community as they cope with their children’s medical needs.

Here at Weddington Elementary, we made the Million Tab Challenge fun! Classes that collected the most pop tabs won a prize! There was one winner from grades K-2 which was Mrs. Katon's class and one winner from grades 3-5 Ms. Kroll's class.
