LEE CO., GA (WALB) - A group of parents in Lee County are saying thank you to the people who help educate their children.

Members of the PTO at Kinchafoonee Primary School have set up a week full of giving back to the teachers.

Going off of a "happy campers" theme, parents lined the halls with decorations.

Places like Chehaw park also donated items for decorations.

They're also helping feed the teachers this week.

On Monday they enjoyed a yogurt bar.

PTO president Hope Morey said it wasn't until she became involved with the PTO that she realized how under-appreciated teachers are.

"And now I know truly our teachers really deserve to be spoiled and loved," said Morey. "They do so much for our children,"

This week the PTO sent students home with suggestions about how they can show their appreciation to their teachers.

On Monday, some students brought their teachers flowers. On Tuesday the students have been asked to bring a handwritten letter or card.
