Today, in Second Grade we said our final goodbyes to a very special man, Mr. Anderson.
Mr. Anderson was our physical education teacher and our friend. He was a passionate and caring man who never complained and was always smiling.
He passed away in March and our school organized a special memorial in his honour last week.
We also dedicated the bulletin board in our front entrance to him, filling it with messages of love and all of his favourite things.
Our staff, students, and community are heartbroken and we miss him very much.
He was not only an esteemed colleague, he was our friend.
Mr. Anderson was passionate about handball and he instilled that passion in many students at our school. He encouraged them to try and to never give up. He devoted his time to extra curricular activities and was happiest when our students were happy.
On the day of his memorial, our school was filed with a sea of purple. Students, past and present, wore their handball jerseys to remember their teacher and mentor.
We love you and miss you Bob.
You will forever be in our hearts.
Until next time...
