5th Grader Treats His Teachers to Dinner Before Moving Onto Middle School ABC News
One fifth-grader had his former teachers beaming last month, after treating them to a night out before moving on to middle school.
Cody Dortch, 11, took seven of his eight elementary school teachers that he’s had since kindergarten to a nice farewell dinner. He even paid the bill himself.
“They loved it,” mom Ashley Dortch of Edmond, Oklahoma, told ABC News today. “One of his teachers, she said, ‘I’ve been teaching for 23 years and that never happens. Some of them cried, and it was an eye-opener to realize that a simple gesture like this would mean so much. They’ve done so much for my kids — giving them an extra hug when they needed it, or a joke to make them laugh.”
