Winfield teachers, staff serve fast food to raise money for school


April 18, 1997|By Christy Kruhm | Christy Kruhm,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

WINFIELD Elementary teachers and staff pushed up their sleeves and got down to serious work Tuesday frying french fries, filling sodas and waiting on hungry fast-food patrons.

They weren't looking to make a quick job change, but instead these good-natured staff members were donating their time and elbow grease as a school fund-raiser.

Winfield Elementary teamed up with a fast-food restaurant in Lisbon for the fund-raiser. Winfield received 20 percent of the sales Tuesday night.

Fifth-grade teacher Kelly Pocasangre and Assistant Principal Rae Leeds greeted diners with balloons and smiles. The dinner crowd overflowed outside.

Physical education teacher Susan Sager hustled to keep up with the steady demands for french fries. At the soda machine were school nurse Sue Jenkins and fifth-grade teacher Joanne Stevens. They had fun but plan to keep their day jobs.

Drive-through customers weren't disappointed. Teachers Kelly Tyree, and Linda Taggart were handing out dinner orders to carloads of schoolchildren.

First-grader Kirsten Kempa thought the teachers did a good job serving burgers and fries.

Kindergartner Kenny Kimble liked the excitement and balloons the best. His sister, Emily Kimble, was surprised at how hard the teachers worked.
