Hillcrest Elementary held its second McTeacher's Night on a very stormy spring night. The event took place on Wednesday, May 2, at the Elgin McDonald's on Larkin 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.

Teachers and staff members from Hillcrest Elementary came to McDonald's excited to serve freshly prepared meals to students and their families to raise money for the school.

Principal Teresa Winters and Assistant Principal Cyndi Aleman were both in attendance to work the event and support the Hillcrest staff. The McTeacher's jobs included greeting guests, cleaning the lobby, working the front counter, clearing tables, selling apple pies and even dressing up as an apple pie.

A special thank you goes to Kristi Schooler who volunteered to dress up as an apple pie the entire night while families donated funds for their own delicious pie! Schooler was assisted by pie sellers, Eva Castillo and Teresita Thompson who helped the school sell 168 pies. Thank you to Aleman who organized the event. Hillcrest Elementary School teachers and staff worked hard and with excitement, while the families enjoyed a spectacular evening.

The McTeacher's Night was hosted by the Bear Family Restaurants and owner/operator, David Bear. Like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BearFamilyMcDonalds/
