A special tree made even more special

25 Oct

A year ago Tuesday, 11-year old Simon Harris lost his courageous battle with neuroblastoma. Simon was a student at Plank Road North Elementary School, where last May the staff members planted a tree in his memory. (Click here to read my blog about that nice ceremony.)

On Monday, to remember that sad anniversary, Plank North staff members dressed up the tree for Halloween, complete with a Jack-o-lantern sporting a Fedora (Simon’s signature headwear) and notes from his teachers.  They chose to do the decorating on a day with good weather so that Simon’s little brother Manny — who still attends Plank North — would be sure to see it.
