The 20 to 30 students on the Northview High School Junior/Senior 2006 Prom Committee will continue to make plans up until the night of the spring event. Pictured in Amy Wetnight's classroom, the students were choosing decorations for use at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College.
If you're hungry and want to support student activities at Northview High School, you need to stop by McDonald's and eat dinner Wednesday.
The McTeacher's Night program is an easy, effective way for schools to raise money to supplement education budgets, said McDonald's Marketing Manager Jackie Johansen.
"It's a fun night where the building will be decorated in the school colors, then the teachers and prom committee members will work during the event to help raise the money for their schools," Johansen said.
The NHS junior class will receive 20 percent of the proceeds on Wednesday, 4 - 8 p.m. The funds will be used to pay for the junior/senior prom to be held at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College on April 21.
"Teachers' night gives our students a great opportunity to work with the community while enjoying our new McDonald's and raising money for their prom at the same time," art teacher and class sponsor Amy Wetnight said.
The extra funding from the McDonald's event will come in handy with the budget shortfalls the junior class is experiencing in preparing for the prom that 500 to 600 students will participate in.
"It's great that we are able to partner with a local business like this to help raise funds for a student activity," NHS Principal Jim Church said. "The students work hard all year long to raise money for the prom, and this will help them in that effort."
