Today we said good bye to Tom Samson. Thank you to everyone for all of your support over the past week. Many people have visited the memorial for Tom Samson and shared their memories of Tom. The memorial will stay there until Friday around noon and the Remembrance Book will stay in the office next week. Then all cards, letters, etc. will be shared with Tom’s family.
A memorial service to celebrate Tom Samson’s career at Swansea Public School will be held on Friday, November 30th at 2:30 pm. Parents are welcome to join us – due to limited space in the gym priority will be given to staff and students first. At the end of the school day staff will be gathering in the soccer field @ 3:20 pm to release 35 balloons in memory of Tom – everyone is welcome to join us. To celebrate Tom’s love of life staff and students will be wearing bow ties on Friday.
Wednesday, November 28th is Swansea Night at Chapters (Bloor and Runnymede). Tom Samson loved reading so parents are welcome to donate a book to the Swansea PS library in his memory. You may write your dedication in the inside cover and leave your book with a parent volunteer or bring to the school office.
Thank you again for all of your support through this difficult time.
