Rodger Boddie is the principal of Hingham Middle School in Massachusetts.  He's been educating children for 36 years.  Mr. Boddie is retiring so his students decided he needed a special send off.

So, Boddie was sent on a mission to film a video about the construction they are doing on a new middle school.  It was all a ruse.

While he was discussing the construction, a crowd of students and adults gathered outside.  Mr. Boddie was taken to the rooftop.  That's where he saw everybody.

Watch the video.
