Some Morgan County teachers rode the bus Friday for a little adventure.  It was a field trip to surprise their students.

The Sparkman Elementary School teachers were excited, and brought goodies as they dropped by the kids' homes.  They split up on three bus routes, armed with full bags of school supplies.

They hand-delivered each one to students, or left them hanging on the door if they weren't there.

"I think it's a great idea. A lot of our children don't always have what they need," one teacher said.

"We want them to know that we miss them and that we can't wait for them to be back," another added.
