Many students, teachers and staff across the district dressed in blue today to pay tribute to sixth-grade student Qwan Tamah who passed away from injuries sustained in an accident over the December break.

Qwan was a student is Mrs. Kerry Degan’s and Mrs.  Nikki LaBoissere’s class. To honor his memory, teacher Meg Fronczek ordered t-shirts imprinted with an image of Qwan’s favorite anime character (Goku) as drawn by his close friends. At the suggestion of his classmates, the words “Be kind like Qwan” were also printed on the blue shirts, which was Qwan’s favorite color. The shirts were given to sixth-grade students to wear in remembrance of their beloved classmate and friend.

The entire district offers our heartfelt condolences to Qwan’s family and friends during this time.
