Have you ever heard of Mc Teacher Night?
It's a school fundraiser where teachers "work" at Mc Donald's and your school gets a portion of the proceeds from the sales during that time frame.
Our school has done it two years in a row. We divide it up between grade levels. We have a designated night for 6th grade, one for 7th and one for 8th. We even make it a competition.
Ours was last week. I was the order caller. It was a pretty easy job.
We also offer students a free homework pass for attending.
We had a great turn out. Not sure what we made money wise, but the kids loved it.
It's a great way to motivate students and been out and about in the community. We are a small town, and we have a ton of staff that commutes. For parents to see those teachers working Mc Donald's was a big deal.
Not sure if it is available in your area, but it is worth a look into.
It is part of McDonalds Educates.
