A group of students made their beloved janitor’s birthday extra special by learning to sing “Happy Birthday” in sign language to him.
The kindergarteners of Hickerson Elementary School in Tennessee, surprised Mr. James Anthony, who is deaf, with an unforgettable rendition of the song as he entered their classroom on Oct. 23 — his 60th birthday.
“His reaction was ecstatic,” kindergarten teacher Allyssa Hartsfield told “Good Morning America.” “He cried, and of course we got emotional with him. After it was over, he said, ‘This is the best birthday present you could’ve given me.'”
