Lyons Township High School District #204 held a McTeacher’s Night at the Westchester McDonald’s on Thursday, May 11th.   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 Thursday, the restaurant was taken over by teachers excited to serve freshly prepared meals to students and their families to raise money for LTHS Relay for Life.  The students and families were excited to see their teachers and principals behind the counter and throughout the restaurant.Thirty-eight teachers and staff members worked from the high school.  The McTeacher’s jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, serving drinks, clearing tables, selling pies and even dressing up in a pie costume–all duties which were executed with great enthusiasm.Lyons Township High School teacher Dorothy Rotolo had a blast dancing around the restaurant in a pie costume.  They were encouraging the families to make a donation and receive a delicious hot apple pie.

A special thank you goes to Lyons Township High School Assistant Principal Kris Costopoulos who organized the event as well as everyone that worked and attended the event.  Lyons Township teachers worked hard and with excitement, while the families enjoyed a spectacular evening.  The monies earned at the event are for Relay for Life Cancer fundraiser. Lyons Township High School Relay for Life raised $500.00 at the event.
