Tryon Elementary School McTeacher’s Night, Oct. 30

Published 9:02am Monday, October 29, 2012

On Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 5-8 p.m., Tryon Elementary School will celebrate McTeacher’s Night at the McDonald’s in Columbus.

Many teachers and staff, and even principal, Mr. Ott Sizemore, will work at McDonald’s – seating customers, taking food orders, making shakes and sundaes, serving dinner, all while students get a chance to hear their teachers say, “Do you want fries with that?”

A portion of the sales made that evening will go directly to the Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) program at school, which provides free books to children three to four times a year.

To make this fundraiser a success, the school needs to get as many school supporters to meet under the Golden Arches on Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 5-8 p.m. for a McTeacher’s Night dinner.

Please tell your neighbors and bring your family and friends to support school.
