McTeacher’s Night at Western Ave. McDonald’s for Roberto Clemente Community Academy

McTeacher’s Night at Western Ave. McDonald’s for Roberto Clemente Community Academy

Roberto Clemente Community Academy of CPS held their first McTeacher’s Night at the McDonald’s on Western in Chicago, on Thursday, May 18. 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. It was a beautiful night. All the kids came to see their favorite teachers working.

On Thursday, 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 Principal Sorensen and Assistant Principal Crosen and many teachers behind the counter and throughout the restaurant.

So many amazing teachers worked from Clemente. The McTeacher’s jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, making Ice Cream treats, working drive-thru and dressing in a pie costume where pies were sold for donations. All duties were executed with great enthusiasm and huge smiles on everyone’s faces.

To make the evening even more memorable, there were performances all night by the Clemente Steel Drums and the Clemente Band.

A special thank you goes to teacher, Sergeant Lewis, who organized the entire event as well as all the staff who worked so graciously to help raise money for Clemente. The school plans to put the money earned into the fund to help the school with items needed to support the students and the school.

The Fundraiser Night was courtesy of the Chicago McDonald’s Owner/Operator, Carmen DeCarrier. The event was all part of Clemente week at the Western Ave. McDonald’s. Like us on Facebook.
