Albany-- Lee County Primary School students are proud to be Americans. Students showed off their patriotic spirit for all to see, it was a sea of flags being waved by first, second and third graders during the school's annual I Love America Program.

Students have spent the week learning the Pledge of Allegiance, singing patriotic songs and participating in related activities. I Love America Week was started in 1980, and teachers say it's a great learning tool to get kids excited about their country.

"We try to instill a love for the country and patriotism into the children, we learn patriotic songs, and the second graders portray famous Americans"said teacher Susan Unger.

 Parents also joined the afternoon celebration that included a puppet performance.
