Have you ever known someone who has or has had cancer? Sadly, many of us have. Last year our Principal Mr. Darden was diagnosed with cancer. He lost his battle to cancer last May. Many of you who never met Mr. Darden might wonder, “Who was Mr. Darden?” That answer includes a man who wore many hats.
Mr. Darden was our Principal. He opened King’s Fork Middle School in Our school was his lifelong dream and he loved us!
Mr. Darden did many things at our school. He was a cook…

So, how did Team Darden start? When our school found out that Mr. Darden had cancer, we got together and started a Relay for Life Team to show him how much we cared and supported him through his tough time.
We sold T-shirts, bracelets, collected coins, and put together a cookbook full of over 235 of Mr. Darden’s recipes.
We posted signs outside of our school to let everyone know about the Relay for Life.
We hosted hot dog nights and had a lot of fun.
We also had a big banquet the night before the Relay last year.
The banquet was to let Mr. Darden know we were still rooting for him!
That same night we put together a lot of fun and exciting music and skits for Mr. Darden.
Team Darden worked very hard at the Relay.
Team Darden walked, and walked, and walked to help fight cancer!
We cheered each other on as we walked and walked.
