Editor's Note: The following statement was provide by a representative of Sandpiper Elementary School.
On Thursday, October 11, at 5:30 p.m., there will be a dedication ceremony for the beautiful mosaic bench built in honor of cherished teacher, wife, mother, and friend, Connie Morgan. Mrs. Morgan taught in the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District for more than 20 years.
Connie loved gardening, art and teaching. So when she passed after a battle with lung cancer, the Sandpiper community decided to do something that would keep her memory alive for future generations of young learners.
The Sandpiper Parent Teacher Association (PTA) collected donations for a hand-crafted mosaic tile bench to be placed in the school garden in Mrs. Morgan’s honor. Family members, friends, past student families, PTAs and colleagues gave generously to the fund. The bench is now here and ready to be installed.
The dedication ceremony is an opportunity for all the donors who made this bench and surrounding garden possible and the community members who were touched by this amazing woman to come together and celebrate Connie Morgan’s life and legacy.
The Connie Morgan Memorial Bench Dedication will be held Thurs., Oct. 11 at 5 p.m. on the campus of Sandpiper Elementary School, located at 801 Redwood Shores Parkway in Redwood Shores. For more information, go to www.sandpiper.brssd.org/.
