Kaiden Montague was on a field trip to the zoo with his classmates at Stonehurst Hills Elementary when clouds and rain moved in.

Kaiden noticed two girls, crouching, cold, and getting wet. Without hesitating, he went over to lend them his rain jacket.

Kaiden's teacher, Samantha Hotz, saw what he was doing and snapped a quick photo. She sent the picture to Kaiden's mom, Kiara Durham, who says she was so proud when she saw it.

"When his teacher sent me this, she said, 'You raised a gentleman.' I'm proud that he's been making good decisions without me even being there," Kiara told Fox 29.

On Monday, Kaiden received a certificate for his act of kindness.
