Dancing Apple Pie Entertains Walt Whitman Students and Families

Walt Whitman Elementary School in Wheeling held their second annual McTeacher’s Night Fundraiser at the Wheeling McDonald’s on Dundee Road.  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 back to the local school. What an amazing night for Walt Whitman School!


On Wednesday May 2nd, the restaurant was taken over by eighteen teachers excited to serve freshly prepared meals to students and their families.  Teachers also handed out orders, cleaned tables, served drinks, and even dressed up in an apple pie costume. Principal Dr. Gwen Gage had a great time dancing around the restaurant during the event.  She dressed in the Pie outfit and what a blast she had mingling with all families and taking pictures.


The Walt Whitman teachers worked hard selling delicious apple pies all night and had a blast. The funds earned from the Pie and food sales will go directly to support the Annual Fun Run, books for the classrooms and field trips.


A special thank you goes to Walt Whitman PTO member Katie Sedin who organized the event as well as everyone who worked and attended.


The McTeacher’s Night was hosted by the Bear Family Restaurants and Owner/Operator, David Bear. Like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BearFamilyMcDonalds/
