Nice to see a feel good story. These great kids are the same ones who are going to end up with crippling interest on college loans unless something gets changed pretty skoshi, though.

There is hope and children such as these deserve better than what Congress is preparing for them!

Truly love this. What a great bunch of kids, and principal. What a neat way to thank him. Gotta admit, it gives us lots of hope for our kids and their future, in spite of what some in congress are trying to do to their education. We must do all we can for the kids. They are our future, the future of our country, the future of our planet. Thanks for giving us hope, my friend.

Thanks so much Kit - how uplifting - these Flash Dances are starting up all over - next week Australia will celebrate a week of Indigenous culture and many young people will be doing flash dances in towns across the Nation. Music and dance..breaks down all the barriers..who wouldn't be touched by this. You're right Joanne, a better system has to be found - other than those crippling debts on education. Australia has a much better system but then America is a America.

What a tribute to the Principal at this middle school.!! I know that he meant a LOT to the students, when they do the Flash Mob and song for him. I am sure that he will treasure this video as well, I know I would. GREAT performance by the kids too.!! Thanks, Kit for this.

I enjoyed this video. Made me feel a bit teary eyed as well. Principal appears to be really please with his students & very emotional. thanks Kit!

Thank You Kit this was uplifting after watching Gasland II. Now if we can get Congress to give students loan at the same rate banks get they can be more stories like this. Noted.

What an amazing way to start a day! Gave me tears and goose bumps. In my day, principals were to be feared, not loved. This is one part of Americana that has changed for the better for sure. Love is the answer to every question even when you are a middle schooler treating your principal to a very fond memory. Wonderful. There is nothing wrong with the students of today and it appears we have some pretty darn good educators too. I miss him already and this was our first meeting! Thanks, Kit. :^)

What a wonderful gesture. That's the moment you realize that you've really made a difference.

I think we feared and respected our principal back in high school, Gene. He was stern but fair, and students do appreciate fair.
