DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

A group of enthusiastic elementary school teachers took to the streets on Friday.  

Teachers from Northside Elementary School went door-to-door to some of their student's homes. 

They passed out flyers and met with parents to invite them to the school for open house. 

They even gave out  $20 gift cards to 15 parents. 

Principal Katina Allen said one of her goals is to create stronger relationships with stakeholders in the school community.
