Opening Day Celebration
- in memory of Mr. Derksen -

While Detroit Tigers fans will be enjoying Major League Baseball's Opening Day on Thursday, March 29th at Comerica Park, students and staff at Jack Miner Public School will be honouring the memory of Mr. Matt Derksen with a sporting occasion of their own.

Mr. Derksen, a teacher at the school, died this past December and baseball was his personal passion. Opening Day was among his favourite days of every year.

To celebrate his life and his legacy, students and staff at Jack Miner will participate in a series of games and activities throughout the day. They'll do Baseball Yoga, play kickball and soccer baseball, First Base Math, Charlie Brown All-stars and create a World Series Pendant.

This special day begins in the gym at 8:15 a.m. with a ceremony and tribute to Mr. Derksen culminating in the Opening Pitch of the day's events.
