The students at Dyllis Springs Elementary worked hard to help support the Ronald McDonald House in Knoxville.


All students were asked to bring in aluminum beverage tabs and can tabs to support the recycling program that helps bring funds to the charity. The class that brought the most tabs would get to throw water balloons at the assistant principal.

All the students supported this wonderful cause and brought in almost 165 pounds of tabs — enough that, if laid end to end, would stretch more than 3 miles.

Dawn Young’s first-grade class brought the most tabs. Tied for second place were Kimberly Brasel’s fourth-grade class, Carly Harrison’s kindergarten class and Becky Efferson’s kindergarten class.

The Dyllis Springs Safety Patrol was honored for its efforts this year. These select students were given extra responsibilities to help ensure the safety and smooth operation morning drop off and dismissal.

As a reward for all their efforts, Roane County student resource officer Steve Sanders allowed the safety patrol members to shave his head.
