Hoover Math & Science Academy Held Their Annual McTeacher’s Night at the Barrington Square McDonald’s in Hoffman Estates


Hoover Math and Science of school district 54 held their annual McTeacher’s Night at the Hoffman Estates McDonald’s in Barrington Square on Tuesday, May 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 local school. On Tuesday, the restaurant was taken over by teachers excited to serve freshly prepared meals to students and their families to raise money for Hoover Math & Science Academy. The students and families were excited to see their teachers and principal behind the counter and throughout the restaurant. Many teachers and staff members worked from the school, including Principal John Schmelzer. The McTeacher’s jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, serving drinks, clearing tables, and selling pies–all duties which were executed with great enthusiasm.

Mr. Sustich, Sixth-grade teacher spent most of the night dressed in a pie costume selling pies for tips, where all profits go directly to the school. Special performances by the 5th-grade Trumpet players as well as the 6th-grade Clarinets, Trumpets and Flutes players being led by music teacher Dana Young. This was a terrific addition to an exciting and fun for the Hoover Academy Community.Ronald McDonald stopped by to join the fun and take pictures with the students and their families. A wonderful time was had by all who attended.


A special thank you goes to PTA Member, Susan Poe, who organized the event as well as everyone that worked and attended this exciting fundraiser. Hoover plans to put the money into the general fund account to be used for the needs of the students and staff.
