Wheeling| Mark Twain Elementary School students gave teachers an A-plus on their fundraising efforts to support the School’sPTO.
Teachers from Wheeling School District 21 volunteered behind the counter on Thursday, March 21st at the McDonald’s located on Lake Cook Road. The teachers worked hard to serve students and their families in a fundraiser for the Elementary School.
Mark Twain staff members worked hardthe entire event and had a great time. Teachers sold pies during this event and enjoyed taking pictures with many of the Mark Twain Students.
