On Tuesday, March 4th, the York High School Autism Society held a very successful McTeacher's Night at the McDonald's on York Rd. in North Elmhurst. Teachers took over the restaurant serving up delicious meals to students and families to raise money for the Autism Society of Illinois. Many teachers worked very hard. The McTeacher jobs included; drive-thru teachers, greeters, teachers cleaning the lobby, front counter teachers, drink teachers, teachers clearing tables, and teachers singing for tips. Teachers working included the following: Mrs. Griganavicius, Mrs. Mucci-Yasdick, Mr. Westendorf, Mrs. Westendorf, Mr. Caputo, Mr. Giuliani, Mr. Shah, Ms. Bhimji, Mrs. Stipe, Ms. Wilk, Mrs. McKay and Mrs. Gallivan. York had it all covered, and the families all had a great time. Lots of students, teachers, families and friends came out to support the school despite the frigid temperatures.  Students came to see their teachers work at McDonald's and support the Autism Society. Students also came to hear a special performance by the rock band, "They Found Us".  A special appearance by Ronald McDonald helped make this fundraiser a memorable evening. Students enjoyed taking pictures with Ronald. It was a great night! Ronald's appearance was courtesy of the North Elmhurst McDonald's owner/operator, Trisha Hall. McTeacher's Night for York would not have been possible without the coordination of the event by McTeacher Elizabeth Gallivan, who is a Special Ed teacher at York and the staff member for the York Autism Society.
