A Watertown Elementary School preschool student surprised a Watertown High School senior before Saturday’s prom at the Capitol Theatre.

Blake Kirby, 4, surprised Gracie Ray with a flower and sign before the school’s prom.

Kirby has a rare skeletal disorder called Saul-Wilson and wanted to surprise Ray with the rose and sign.

The sign read, “Mickey needs Minnie. Tigger needs Pooh, and I would like to go to prom with you.”

“Blake is the coolest kid. His love for life and others is contagious,” said Kandi Ray, Gracie’s mother.
