Fun teacher appreciation challenge at Lansingburgh school

Turnpike Elementary School in Lansingburgh is celebrating “Teacher Appreciation Week” – with a game put together by the school principal.
The teachers spin a wheel and get a challenge. The challenge for one teacher was to contact the news and bring a news team in to talk about this. That’s where we came in. The school contacted NewsChannel 13 – and we were happy to answer. Thank you to all the teachers out there.
