The teacher took to his Facebook account to show gratitude to his students and staff members of the school. He shared photos his students, himself and the puppy with the caption below:
I cannot brag on my students and the Clements family enough. As all of you know, my 11.5 year old Golden, Chip, ran off three weeks ago, presumably to die. I've missed him terribly.
Well, fast forward to this morning.....Mrs. Erin Schweighardt Gray calls me to her room to show me her "Disney" surprise, because she's a "Disneyholic", like me....well, I get there, and I see all these students, my beautiful wife, my good friend and counselor Thomas Young, and a host of others, and my students presented us with this beautiful, 8-week old AKC Golden. Everyone, meet our newest family member, Clementine!
I love these kids. There are no words. I have offered to pay for the puppy, as I had no idea the kids were doing this. I would never have allowed such a thing. I will consequently be adding the estimated cost of the puppy to the senior fund, out of my pocket.
I'm completely floored and blindsided by their kindness.
