1st Grade Wins Pop Tab Competition
The Callaway Chapter of Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) celebrated FCCLA week February 9-13. This year’s theme was “Together We Are FCCLA,” so the week was filled with numerous activities focusing on three main goals: promote, publicize and recognize. Signs filled the hallways promoting FCCLA and the events for the week. FCCLA member were encouraged to wear their District shirts and received rootbeer floats in recognition of membership. The rest of the week was filled with dress up days and activities for the whole student body to compete in. Activities included guess the amount of candy hearts in the jar, FCCLA member baby picture trivia, and a red/pink out. As a fundraiser, the chapter sold Valentine’s Day Candy-grams with messages from their friends. Our service project for the week collected pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House; which provide a variety of services to families and children including a place to stay for traveling families with seriously ill or injured children. The 1st Grade class won the competition collecting 22 lbs. of pop tabs which is equivalent to 27,874 Pop Tabs. The 4th grade class was a close second, collecting 17 lbs. of pop tabs.
