Streamwood High School Holds Their First McTeacher’s Night at Streamwood McDonald’s on Irving Park Rd

Streamwood High School of School District U46 held their first annual McTeacher’s Night at the Streamwood McDonald’s on Irving Park Rd, on Wednesday, April 26. 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 local school.

On Wednesday, the restaurant was taken over by teachers excited to serve freshly prepared meals to students and their families to raise money for Streamwood High School. The students and families were excited to see their teachers behind the counter and throughout the restaurant.

An amazing nineteen teachers worked from the school. The McTeacher’s jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, serving drinks, Ice Cream, drive-thru, and selling pies while dressed in a pie costume. All which were executed with great enthusiasm and huge smiles on everyone’s faces.

With two pie costumes on hand, teachers Paul Kowalysszyn, Hector Hernandez, and Gary Parciak all had a blast dancing in the Pie Costumes on Irving Park Rd in front of McDonald’s, for the entire three-hour event, to guide the customers into the restaurant where they could buy a Hot Apple Pie. Teacher Meagen Balzer also took a turn in the pie costume inside the restaurant and enjoyed taking pictures with the students.

A special thank you goes to teacher Nicole Marker, who organized the entire event as well as everyone that worked and attended this exciting and memorable evening.

Streamwood High School will use the $594.00 Raised towards the MTSS program, which stands for Multi-Tiered System of Supports. This is a Response to Intervention Model that utilizes a three-tiered system designed to help District U46 schools provide students with high-quality instruction and interventions through academic and behavioral supports.
