McDonald’s gives area teachers $40,000


McDonald’s Restaurants of the Miami Valley awarded more than $40,000 to teachers during the Make Activities Count grants program recognition ceremony last night at the Ray and Joan Kroc Center in Dayton.

The McDonald’s group includes the owners of 74 restaurants in 13 counties throughout Ohio and Indiana. It has awarded about $470,000 in MAC grant money to about 1,000 teachers in 11 years.

The grants are used to supplement classroom curriculum with hands-on activities, according to spokeswoman Meghann Naveau.

Kindergarten through eighth-grade teachers in the Miami Valley and the greater Lima and Richmond, Ind., areas applied for grants for as much as $500.

Naveau said this year’s winning projects include a mural wall art lesson that shows a school’s diversity and a kindergarten teacher’s plan to purchase eggs, ants and tadpoles to show her students how animals grow.
