[November 12, 2012]  SPRINGFIELD -- McDonald's restaurants in central Illinois will team up to bolster education budgets on McTeacher's Nights, scheduled throughout the week of Nov. 12-16. Participating restaurants will donate a percentage of the proceeds from evening sales to local schools. While students, parents and other school supporters are visiting McDonald's, selected teachers and school staff will be working behind the counter.

All levels and types of schools will be represented -- grade school, middle school, high school, public, private and parochial.

In Lincoln, Adams Elementary School will participate at the local McDonald's on Thursday.

Partnering schools will promote the fundraiser by decorating McDonald's restaurants with school colors, distributing event fliers, using school mascots, inviting the school band and having attendance competitions between grades and classes.

McDonald's has a tradition of being a good community partner and neighbor and has a long-standing commitment to supporting education, World Children's Day and Ronald McDonald House Charities. McTeacher's Nights give communities a chance to support area schools while they enjoy a meal at McDonald's.
