Ticonderoga Have you ever wanted to tell a teacher what to do?
Students — and others — will have a chance to do just that during the annual “McTeacher Night” in Ticonderoga Tuesday, May 1.
Ticonderoga Central School teachers will work at the local McDonald’s that night with all restaurant proceeds going to refurbish the kindergarten playground.
Teachers will be flipping burgers and cooking fries 4:30 to 7 p.m.
Scott Hearburg, owner of the Ticonderoga McDonald’s, has agreed to donate all profits from the “McTeacher” event to the playground fund.
“Scott has been a strong supporter of the playground fund at the Ticonderoga Elementary School,” said John Bartlett, who is also active in the playground effort. “His goal for this night is to raise funds to help renovate the kindergarten playground located at the Ticonderoga Elementary School.”
This is the third annual “McTeacher Night.” Last year the event raise about $5,000 for the elementary school playground project, which is separate from the kindergarten playground.
“Teachers will be making French fries, hamburgers, frappes and McNuggets, etc.,” Bartlett said. “Teachers and school staff will work in the drive thru, clean tables, help prepare food, welcome customers, and will be doing it all for a great cause.
“It doesn’t matter if you prefer a Quarter Pounder or a Ranch Salad with Crispy Chicken, or a Frappe Mocha,” Bartlett said. “Please come to McDonald’s in Ti on May 1 and support the local teachers and the young children of our community.”
