Crescent Elementary Teachers take over McDonald's for a nightSubmitted: 10/16/2013
Story By Melissa Constanzer


RHINELANDER - Teachers read books, write on chalk boards, and grade tests. We don't expect to see them flipping burgers at McDonald's but tonight, the Crescent Elementary staff is taking over the downtown McDonald's in Rhinelander.

The school is holding its first annual McTeacher Night. Twenty percent of the sales will go to the school. The school uses celebrations to reward student's good behavior, but this costs money.

"We'll use the money for celebrations. We have monthly celebrations. We have celebrities come each week and deliver prizes," says Nicki Meyer, Guidance Counselor.

But it's not all about the money. The Principal says it's nice to get out of school walls.

"See our Crescent Elementary School families and students in a non-school, community setting and supporting our school," Kelly Huseby, Crescent Elementary Principal.

But can these teachers really handle the pressure of working in fast food?! Some are nervous but others are not.

"While, before I worked here, I worked at Dairy Queen, so I feel like I am ready for this job," says Emmie Delveaux, 1st Grade Teacher.

McTeacher Night lasts until 7pm tonight.
