Washington Elementary School in School District 63 held its second annual McTeacher’s Night on Tuesday, September 12th at the Niles McDonald’s on Milwaukee Avenue.

A McTeacher’s Night is organized to help raise money for local schools by having teachers and staff work at McDonald’s and then giving a percentage of the night’s sales back to the local school.

On September 12, the restaurant was taken over by teachers and staff members from Washington Elementary excited to serve freshly prepared meals to students and their families to raise money for Washington PTO.

There were 19 teachers and staff members who worked from the school including Principal Kate Anderson who volunteered the entire night. The McTeacher’s jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, serving drinks, clearing tables, selling apple pies and even dressing up in an apple pie costume.

A Special thank you goes to Andrew Hancock, Heather Tratt and Jimmy Jimenez who volunteered to dress up as an apple pie while families donated funds for their own delicious pie!  Thank you to PTO representative Kelli Vandegrift who organized the event.  Washington Elementary School teachers and staff worked hard and with excitement, while the families enjoyed a spectacular evening.

Washington Elementary School plans to use the money raised for their Makerspace Room.  This room will be used by the students to promote hands on learning and creativity. Washington Elementary raised over $600.00 at the event.
