Lee County--Elementary students in Lee County are finding out what it's like to operate a post office. Lee County Primary School's in-school post office is a big hit with the kids. They pick up the mail from an authentic post office mail box, sort it and deliver it.

The students say they have a lot to write about to their friends. First Grader Rachel McGill says, "I like to say I wish I could play with you but I can't because I have to do my work first." Teacher Jan Duke says, "We see that reading and writing is better, they're trying to make their handwriting perfect so people that receive mail can read it too."

The student's purchase stamps for one cent a piece, and can write anyone they want in the school.
