Coal City Elementary School hosts McTeacher’s Night at McDonald’s

COAL CITY – Coal City Elementary School of District 1 held its first McTeacher’s Night on May 5 at the McDonald’s on Broadway Street in Coal City. 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. The students and families expressed excitement to see their teachers behind the counter and throughout the restaurant, and their principal, Mr. Christopher Spencer, dressed in a pie costume.

The McTeacher’s jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, ice cream and working drive-thru and dressing in a pie costume where pies are sold for donations. All which were executed with great enthusiasm and huge smiles on everyone’s faces.

A special thank you goes to Spencer for organizing the event, as well as to everyone who worked and attended the evening.

Coal City Elementary held this McTeacher’s Night to raise money for a local sixth-grade student, Jacob Zickefoose, who is battling cancer and undergoing chemotherapy treatments. The school was able to raise $925.50 for Jacob.

The McTeacher’s Night was courtesy of the Romeoville McDonald’s Owner/Operator, Marvin Spence.
