Arlington Heights| Riley Elementary School students gave teachers and administrators an A-plus on their fundraising efforts to support Riley Elementary School.
 
Teachers, support staff, and Principal Kevin Olsen from Riley Elementary School volunteered behind the counter on Thursday, March 21st, at the Arlington Heights McDonald’s located on Dundee Road, where they served students and their families in their annual fundraiser.
 
Principal Olsen along with teachers Debbie Allbright, Abby Pillow, and Kayla Fleming sang and danced around the restaurant encouraging students to purchase a delicious apple pie while teachers tended the front counter, served ice cream and presented food at the drive-thru.
 
The proceeds from the 132 apple pies sold will be used to help support the PBIS Program, purchase new recess equipment and help fundschool-wide celebrations. Twenty percent of the proceeds from the McTeacher’s Night sales were donated directly to Riley Elementary School.
 
“The Riley community had a McLovely night at McDonald’s. Thanks for all the support! Thank you David Bear and the staff for making us feel so at home.” said Riley Principal Kevin Olsen.
 
David Bear, OwnerOperator of the Arlington Heights McDonald’s and the Bear Family were delighted to participate in the worthy cause for education and the community.
 
The Riley Elementary School McTeacher’s Night was courtesy of the Bear Family Restaurants and McDonald’s OwnerOperator, David Bear.  Like us on Facebook and visit our Bear Website.
