To the Times of Ti:
Ticonderoga’s teachers would like to thank everyone who came out to McDonald’s on May 1 and supported their efforts to raise funds. Local instructors flipped burgers, waited on customers, and served up frappe mochas during the third annual McTeacher Night. Despite their hard work, everyone had fun and it was all in support of a great cause.
McTeacher Night raised $4,000 which will be used for long overdue renovations at the kindergarten playground area at the Ticonderoga Elementary-Middle School.
Scott Hearburg, owner of McDonald’s donated 100 percent of the proceeds made from 4:30-7 p.m. on May 1 towards the effort. Scott has been a strong supporter of the playground fund at the Ticonderoga Elementary-Middle School and has been a leader in organizing the efforts to provide stimulating play opportunities for the children of our community.
Last year’s McTeacher night raised $4,000 and the first McTeacher’s raised $5,000 for the playground fund.
The playground committee also would like to express its appreciation to the all the teachers who worked at McTeacher Night and to the community members whose support made this a success. We expect that there will be additional opportunities for volunteers to support this effort in the near future when the enhancements to the kindergarten playground are implemented.
Thanks again to the community for its continuing support of this effort!
