GREENSBORO, N.C. — At first glance, it looks like a regular pick up at an elementary school back in session. But actually it was a way for the teachers to give new materials to the students and reconnect at the same time.
The school had all first-grade teachers out in a "drive-thru" approach in front of the school Thursday morning. The teachers say they were just as excited to see the kids as they were to give out educational materials.
First-grade teacher Morgan Wilkerson said "We never got to say goodbye to the kids. They were just gone. So this gives us a way to see them and see their smiling faces. They were so excited."
The school will do this with other grade levels as needed until all supplies are distributed.
