Last Friday Travis Heights Elementary held a school-wide memorial for our beloved Mr. Brandon. Children and Teachers shared memories of their teacher and friend. It was a celebration which pulled laughter and tears…and a lot of hugs.
The Thunderband led by Mr. Ligon, and ultimately joined by everyone present, sang Lean On Me. There was an unbelievable tribute video which included footage of Mr. Brandon teaching and memories shared by his students. Kindergarten sang Twinkle Twinkle Little Star – in unison!
More spirit than ever was felt when the entire gymnasium dedicated their Appreciation Pump to our wonderful Mr. Brandon. Then the student body yelled together, “HIT IT” as our newest faculty member, Mr. Carslon took up the drums to help us keep the beat and started the Thunderband and participants in one of the most uplifting performances of our school song.
Mr. Brandon’s family was at the memorial and showed gratitude for the gift of love (and plants) that we presented them.
We miss you Mr. Brandon.
We celebrate you Mr. Brandon.
We love you Mr. Brandon.
-Your Thunderbird Family : )
Here are a couple videos from the Memorial.
