Hillcrest Elementary School partners with McDonald's in a fundraising effort
On Tuesday, Dec. 4, Hillcrest Elementary School in Elgin took over the McDonald's located at 1480 Larkin Ave. in Elgin.
Students were thrilled to see their favorite teachers -- especially Principal Teresa Winters -- outside of the classroom at an event to raise money for their school.
Principal Winters did an amazing job throughout the evening collecting tips at the drive-thru window, as she is pictured here doing. Her energy and stamina allowed for great tips from customers.
As for the rest of the teachers, they were hard at work greeting families entering the restaurant, taking orders at the registers, calling out prepared orders, and selling pies throughout the restaurant.
One teacher, Nelly Rojas, went as far as making ice cream behind the counter, for the students.
All in all, it was an outstanding evening filled with joy. It was all made possible by the Bear Family Restaurants, owner-operator David Bear, and, of course, Hillcrest Elementary School along with the wonderful support from their families, students, and staff.
