Divine Providence Catholic School held a McTeacher’s Night at the Westchester McDonald’s on 31st Street. The event took place on Thursday, February 2. A McTeacher’s Night is organized to help raise money for local schools by having teachers work at McDonald’s and then giving a percentage of the night’s sales to the school. Divine Providence school Principal Foleno, Assistant Principal Blase, McTeacher’s, staff and Father Tim had an exceptional time at this lively fundraiser.

On Thursday the restaurant was taken over by teachers excited to serve freshly prepared meals to students and their families to raise money for Divine Providence. The students and families were excited to see their teachers and Principal Foleno at the drive-thru window. McTeacher Pakosta wore the pie costume almost the entire night and took many selfies with students.

The McTeacher jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, serving drinks, clearing tables, selling pies, serving ice cream and even dressing up in a pie costume-all duties which were executed with great enthusiasm. A special appearance by Ronald McDonald was adored by all the families.

A special thank you goes to Linda Hawkins, Director of Parish and School Marketing who organized the event as well as everyone that worked and attended the event. Divine Providence School McTeacher’s worked hard and with excitement, while the families also enjoyed a great evening. Divine Providence plans to use the money raised to go into the fund to help with a mini makeover for the gym at the school.
