Dear Thunderbird Families and Community:
We have all been touched by Darrell Harper, who sadly passed away on June 8, 2020. Darrell worked at Thunderbird for 14 years as our primary playground supervision aide.
He leaves a legacy of service for our community and a spirit of kindness. Mr. Darrell’s last words for our Thunderbird students are as follows:
“I want you to remember to always be kind to your parents, your teachers, your friends and everyone you meet. Kindness goes a long way in life.”
We would like to have Mr. Darrell continue to be with us in spirit on our primary playground. He was the gentle giant who stood watch over our youngest students, always greeting them by name, tying shoelaces and encouraging them to “make good choices.”
If you are able to, we would be honoured if you would like to contribute towards a commemorative bench in memory of Mr. Darrell. Our fundraising goal is $3000. You can make a contribution at the link below. When donating please choose the option “in memory of Darrell Harper”.
Thunderbird Staff and Students thank you for your support.
