The students visited the Fargo Ronald McDonald House and volunteered their time to help around the house. Students helped with raking, washing windows and getting a playground set out in the yard.

Collecting pop tabs has been a school project each year for the past four years. The students celebrate by visiting the house and taking the pop tabs to the recycling center. This year, they brought 244 pounds of pop tabs-a new record.

Pop tabs will be collected at Heart of the Lakes Elementary School again next year, so families are encouraged to collect the tabs all summer and bring them to school in the fall.
