Nobleboro Central School kindergartner Phineas enjoys a surprise reunion with his father, U.S. Coast Guard Gunners Mate 1st Class Matthew Hansbury. Hansbury visited his son's classroom after returning early from overseas service with the Coast Guard.

A Nobleboro Central School kindergarten student got the surprise of his life when his father, who has been serving overseas in the military, walked into his classroom April 28.

U.S. Coast Guard Gunners Mate 1st Class Matthew Hansbury, of Nobleboro, arrived home earlier than expected last week. Instead of alerting his family, he surprised them.

Hansbury first showed up at Warren Elementary School, where his wife Julianne was at work. She said she was in a meeting and was shocked to see her husband approaching.

The couple then conspired to surprise their son Phineas, 5, a kindergartener at NCS.

Students were reading when a knock came on the classroom door of Barbara Powell's room, announcing a special visitor. The kindergartner beamed and shouted "Dad!" as he ran into his father's arms for a happy reunion.

Classmates peppered Hansbury with questions about his Coast Guard service, his camouflage clothing and other related topics.
