McTeacher’s Night fun for CCES


Coal City Elementary School District #1 held its first annual McTeacher’s Night at Coal City McDonald’s on Broadway Street in Coal City on Wednesday, May 5.  The event 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 were excited to see their teachers behind the counter and throughout the restaurant as well as their Principal, Mr. Spencer, dressed in a pie costume.
Many teachers worked from the school. The McTeacher's jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, ice cream, working drive-thru and even dressing in a pie costume where pies are sold for donations. All duties were executed with great enthusiasm and huge smiles on everyone's faces.
Special appreciation goes to Principal Christopher Spencer, who organized the entire event as well as everyone that worked and attended this exciting and memorable evening.
Coal City Elementary School held this McTeacher’s Night to raise money for a local sixth-grade student, Jacob Zickefoose, who is battling cancer and currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments. Thanks to an amazing group of teachers, the school was able to raise $925.50 for Jacob.
