After 36 years of dedicated service, the principal Hingham Middle School in Hingham, Massachusetts, Mr. Roger Boddie, is set to retire.

To send off the man who gave so much to their school in proper style, the faculty first tricked him into giving a tour of the new building construction while the students prepared his surprise.

Once he was on the roof top, the students and faculty performed a goodbye flash mob performance that has most viewers misty-eyed. 

The video was actually posted online last week, but has only gone viral now.
