(INSIDE EDITION) - These students surprised their longtime elementary school custodian with a party to show their appreciation for all his hard work.
In a video posted by Kleenex, Mr. Patton explained how he takes pride in his work every day at a Nashville elementary school.
"It's really important for kids to go to a clean school," he said.
The entire school planned a surprise party for the custodian to show their appreciation.
They told him that there was a spill in the gymnasium but when he walked in, all the children cheered for him.
When the school, along with Kleenex, gave him a check for $1,000, Mr. Patton was overcome with emotion.
Kleenex's "Messages of Care" campaign shares the personal stories of people all over the country who could use a tissue during emotional times in their lives.
