Onahan Elementary a level 1+ school held its second McTeacher’s Night on a very sunny spring night. The event took place on Tuesday, May 1st at the Chicago McDonald’s on North Milwaukee Avenue.
A McTeacher’s Night is organized to help raise money for local schools by having teachers and staff work at McDonald’s and then giving a percentage of the night’s sales back to the local school.
On May 1st, the restaurant was taken over by teachers and staff members from Onahan Elementary excited to serve freshly prepared meals to students and their families to raise money for the Onahan School resurfacing of the back playground. Onahan has been raising money all year for the playground project which will include a stencil of U.S. map on the blacktop and games for the kids to play.
There were at least 30 teachers and staff who worked from the school. Principal Patten and Assistant Principal Staskawicz were also both in attendance to support the Onahan staff. The McTeacher’s jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, serving drinks, clearing tables, selling apple pies and even dressing up as an apple pie.
A Special thank you goes to teachers Becky Triptow, Janine Blez and Erin Montarano who volunteered to dress up as an apple pie while families donated funds for their own delicious pie! They were also assisted by the pie sellers, MaryPat Kleinhubert, Cyndi Lopardo and Tora Shannon who helped the school go through an entire case of pies in a little over an hour. Thank you to PTO representative Allison Santana who organized the event. Onahan Elementary School teachers and staff worked hard and with excitement, while the families enjoyed a spectacular evening.
