McTeacher’s Night in Old Town 

The teachers at Old Town Elementary School took part in McTeacher’s night last weekend at McDonald’s. For two hours they took orders, helped in the kitchen, and even worked the grill. It was all in an effort to raise money for the school.Today they were rewarded for all their hard work. McDonald’s presented Old Town Elementary with a check for a portion of that night’s proceeds. The students also helped out by handing out coupons to get folks to go to McDonald’s that night.Awards were given to teachers and students for their participation in the program.Company officials say this is a great way to support the community.”I think in today’s economic climate, I think we’re all really needing to help each other in any way that we can, and this is a great way that McDonald’s can give back to the communities that we live in and help out the local schools.” says Linda Quagliaroli, a local owner and operater of McDonald’s.$800 was raised at McTeacher’s night. A portion of that was matched by Bangor Savings Bank. In total about $1,200 was donated to the school.We’re told that money will be given to the school’s Learning Center to buy books.
