COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Teachers are getting ready to head back to class.

Muscogee County teachers are filling their classrooms ahead of next week's first day of school. Students return Thursday morning.

Teachers and staff are getting things in order like organizing supplies and decorating walls.

Columbus-area teachers are in luck, because they will be eligible to receive a 25 percent discount on school supplies at Staples during the tax-free weekend.

Teachers enrolled in the Staples Teacher Rewards Program will receive a coupon for 25 percent off any purchase of $10 or more. If you are not currently enrolled in the Teachers Reward Program, you can sign up at any Staples store from Aug. 1-3 and also receive 25 percent back in rewards.

This savings is only open to teachers and excludes technology. Exclusions apply, see stores for details.
