Student surprises entire school with Valentine's on lockers

Posted: Updated:

Area students got a sweet surprise when they arrived at school this morning. 

A fellow student handmade more than 800 Valentine's and posted them on each locker.

It happened at Franklin Middle School in Cedar Rapids. 

8th grader Cora Johansen spent the last three weeks writing and drawing the Valentine's after school. 

"I did my homework and then I just went straight to making Valentines," Johansen says. 

She stayed after school Tuesday to post them on the lockers with the help of some friends. 

Suckers were added to the Valentine's and Johansen made sure to use peanut and gluten free ones so they would be okay for everyone to eat. 

This morning students arrived to find the loving surprise. 

"I was like oh what's this and then I see everybody has them it's actually really thoughtful," Brooklyn Tompkins told us. 

Johansen says she wanted everyone to feel special today. 

"Some people in the school don't have friends or they don't have somebody that loves them very much or they feel like they don't have somebody that's there, so I wanted to make everybody feel special on Valentine's Day," she told us.
