North Valley Christian Academy wins McTeacher's Night Challenge


ANTHEM – The Anthem McDonald’s restaurant has raised over $3,600 for local schools.

The restaurant, owned by Gordon Schrage, hosted a month-long McTeacher's Night Challenge in September for five local schools, including Canyon Springs, Gavilan Peak, North Valley Christian Academy, Anthem School, and Diamond Canyon.

This year, in order to even the playing field due to the different enrollments of the schools, the contest was based on money raised per student. This new formula led to North Valley Christian to win the ‘McTeacher's Night Challenge’ and claim the $1,000 prize.

As part of McTeacher's Night, a portion of McDonald's sales during a two-hour period benefited each school. The school's principal and teachers “worked” at McDonald's, greeting customers, working the register, and selling cookies in the lobby. Families of students and local school supporters visited McDonald's and tipped their teachers to help raise funds.

Anthem McDonald's owner/operator Gordon Schrage presented checks to the principals of the schools during a reception at the Anthem McDonald's restaurant.

"We were delighted to bring this McTeacher's Night Challenge to the Anthem community for the fifth consecutive year and work with our local schools to raise money for education," said Schrage.
