McTeachers’ Night raises $400 for students’ D.C. Trip

LAPEER — Thanks to generous support and turnout from the community, the McTeachers’ night held Dec. 12 supporting the Rolland-Warner-Zemmer 8th grade Washington D.C. trip was a “tremendous success,” according to the LCS school district. Teachers from the district greeted customers, worked the registers, served drinks, and in some cases, assisted with preparation of food.

Together, they were able to raise over $400 to help send students to Washington, D.C. for the 2014 eighth grade class trip.

A special thank you went out to all the LCS staff, students, administration, McDonald’s employees, and members of the Brightsparks Travel Corporation who helped make the fundraiser a success.
