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.
HARSHAW - Oneida County sheriff's deputies found three runaway sisters, ages 14, 14, and 12, in the woods in Harshaw just after 1 p.m. on Monday.
The sisters had been reported missing by their parents Monday morning. The parents had gone to wake the girls up for school, but instead found a note saying they had gone on an "adventure."
The missing girls triggered a search from the Oneida County Sheriff's Office Special Response Unit, Newbold Fire Department Search and Rescue, Minocqua Fire Department, Lake Tomahawk Fire Department, and Little Rice Fire Department.

RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander factory that makes smoke flavoring caught fire early Monday morning.
Shortly before 6:00 a.m., Rhinelander, Crescent and Newbold Fire Departments responded to a fire at Red Arrow Products on Rhinelander's west side.
An employee says there were about eight workers inside at the time.
No one was injured.
"Flames were coming out of a conveyor area as high as the roof. We made an interior attack and knocked that flame down. Came in from the other side of the partition wall, then made another interior attack and knocked that down," says Chief Terry Williams.
