Student Council


Student Council members are collecting pop tabs through April 5th, 2019, for Ronald McDonald House. The pop tabs are then donated during the Annual IAJHSC Convention held at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield in April.  To many, a pop tab is just a piece of aluminum with one purpose – to open a can. However, to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois, the pop tab is a valuable resource. Why?  Collected pop tabs are recycled, generating much-needed funds to support the House and the nearly 400 families we serve each year. Each year around 3,000 lbs are collected during this single collection event, and awards are given for the top collecting schools.
