Washington Elementary School in District U-46 held its first McTeacher’s Night on Thursday, November 9th, at the Elgin McDonald’s on Larkin Avenue.

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

On Thursday, November 9th, The Elgin McDonald’s On Larkin was taken over by extremely excited teachers, staff member and families to raise money while making lasting memories for their school.

The teachers and the Principal worked hard all night long serving freshly prepared meals to the students and their families. 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 as an apple pie.

 A very special thank you goes to McPie Teachers Tina Saldivar and Kathleen Christerson who each took a turn wearing the pie costume for the night, and let’s not forget the McPie Helpers Inez Cardona and Theresa Pietrusiak who walked around during the event with the McPie Teachers selling delicious Hot Apple Pies.

Another special thank you goes to Principal Lori Brandes who organized the entire event as well as all the teachers and staff that donated their time to make this night an ENORMOUS success for Washington Elementary School.

Washington Elementary School raised over $1000.00 during this event and plans to put the money towards Science materials for the school.
