Heritage Elementary School, Of District U-46, held their first McTeacher’s Night at the Streamwood McDonald’s on Irving Park Rd. on Monday, May 22.

The students and families were excited to see their teachers behind the counter and throughout the restaurant. Principal Cathie Fletcher wore the Pie costume and sold pies for donations. The students were excited to take pictures with Principal Fletcher in the pie costume.

The McTeacher’s jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, serving drinks, and clearing tables. All duties which were executed with great enthusiasm and huge smiles from everyone.
