When the school principal found out that the kind and caring woman had never had a birthday party, she said that the school had to do something about it. Her birthday was on January 30, but because she wasn’t going to be at work that week, the principal and students thought it would be nice to give Ms. Frances a surprise birthday party, ahead of time.

They organized an “assembly” in the middle and got all the students and staff together. As Ms. Frances enters the gym, everyone immediately yells, “SURPRISE!” She didn’t know that this gathering was for her birthday until the principal announced that it’s happening in her honor.

The 77-year-old is then seen with a birthday sash and crown and is seated right in the center; the school also put together a video presentation on her life. It was a truly special moment for everyone, especially the birthday girl, and she was in tears by the end of it.
