Teachers thought they were attending a brief assembly at Perry Elementary on Thursday, but instead, they got a surprise.
A representative from the Belvidere Walmart was on hand to thank the teachers for their hard work with gift bags and a $50 gift card. The gifts will hopefully help the teachers get some needed items for their classrooms.
Fifth grade teacher Sue Thomas said teachers sometimes end up "digging out of our own pockets," and the gift card will be a great help for upcoming class experiments.
