Video: Retiring Williamsville principal, school staff 'Sing' a goodbye

A retiring Williamsville middle school principal said goodbye to students and staff and endorsed his successor while lip-synching Stevie Wonder in a video posted on YouTube.

Fran McGreevy went out from Casey Middle School wearing sunglasses and sitting behind a piano in a music video with teachers and staff dancing to "Faith," a song from the soundtrack of the 2016 animated film "Sing."

McGreevy is retiring after 18 years in the Williamsville Central School District. Peter Dobmeier, who has been assistant principal at the school for the last 6 1/2 years, takes over the top job in July.

"You gotta have faith," McGreevy said before he snapped his fingers and broke into song.

Energetic members of the school's staff displayed their dance moves in a variety of locations, including a chemistry classroom, the gym, outside on the bleachers and a locker room.
