These high school teachers had an awesome ’80s surprise for grads

Who says pomp and circumstance has to be quiet and regal? Why not badass, rocker, and ULTRA ’80s? That’s what we’re asking after seeing a super awesome video making its rounds on the interwebz featuring the staff at Salisbury Composite High School.

The video was shown at graduation and features faculty and staff rocking out around the school, dressed in ’80s garb, dancing and lip-syncing to 10-second clips of various iconic songs of the decade. And it is seriously the best thing ever.

“We just wanted it to be something memorable for the students, something fun the staff did for them,”  assistant principal Jeff Spady explained to Sherwood Park News. “I think we accomplished that because of the response from our students. We kept this completely quiet from [them], because we wanted the first time it was shown to be during our grad ceremony [in mid-May], so it was very hush-hush.”

The result? The BEST SURPRISE EVER. The video, which started out with the staff piling out of a bus (and, of course, the opening chords of “Don’t Stop Believin’), was nothing short of perfect.
