Coal City Early Childhood Center held its first McTeacher’s Night at the Coal City McDonald’s on Broadway Street on March 8.
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 to the local school.
On Wednesday, the restaurant was taken over by teachers excited to serve freshly prepared meals to students and their families to raise money for Coal City Early Childhood Center.
The students and families were excited to see their teachers behind the counter and throughout the restaurant.
The McTeacher’s jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, serving drinks, clearing tables, selling pies, and even dressing up in a pie costume.
Principal Spencer worked hard all night in a pie costume and with the help of one of the teachers, they encouraged the families to make a donation and receive a delicious hot apple pie.
There was a special appearance by Ronald McDonald at 4:30, and all the families enjoyed meeting and getting a picture with Ronald McDonald.
The school plans to use the money raised to help the victims of the Feb. 28 Ottawa tornado.
