More than 1,000 students from Ooltewah Elementary took time out of their school day to celebrate the birthday of Mr. Donald, who works at the school.

Mr. Donald is the custodian.

One teacher says every student hand wrote Mr. Donald a card and every grade level made him a birthday banner.

Many people left messages, praising Mr. Donald for his service and dedication on the school’s Facebook page.
