MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — Houston County principals are saddened about their inability to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week like they normally do.

Dana Wiggins — the Quail Run Elementary School principal — says the week is usually spent celebrating with students. Due to COVID-19, schools are showing appreciation for teachers differently.

Wiggins says the school held a drive-thru celebration Monday in which teachers received cupcakes and other treats.

She says she is thankful for her teachers now more than ever.

“Teachers, I want you to know that we love you and we are so so proud of you,” Wiggins said. “You are appreciated every day — especially during these trying times. You have shown up and you made magic happen.”

THe Houston County School District is hosting a series of virtual Teacher Appreciation celebrations this week. Each day, students can participate and submit pictures.

The full list of activities is on the Houston County School System’s Facebook page.
