Piper has been an inspirational member of the Yennadon community over the years.
Teachers describe her as empathic, polite, considerate, positive, socially responsible, a seeker of knowledge, an excellent communicator, respectful, and a student who displays determination and commitment when faced with a challenge.
Piper has worked hard over the last years to maintain a strong academic performance. During the 2015-16 school year, she was involved as a member of our WE Team and helped organize and participate in a number of fundraisers designed to help both our local community and other global initiatives.
Her Grade 1 teacher recalls when Piper ” had all the kids who attended her birthday party that year donate money so she could purchase a goat for a village in need. She is an inspiration!”
In Grade 5, Piper snuck into her teacher’s classroom on a Pro-D day and delivered a cake for her teacher and wrote kind messages on the whiteboard. Her Grade 5 teacher reminisces that, “it still puts a smile on my face.”
Further, Piper spent her spring break holiday as a member of ‘Free the Children’, helping to build a water treatment facility in a small village in Ecuador. We are excited to see what other great things Piper will do in the future.
About Leaders of Tomorrow
The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District (SD42) has teamed up with the Maple Ridge News to celebrate local students who are making a difference at school and in the community. Elementary and secondary students featured as Leaders of Tomorrow were picked by their principals for making positive achievements in academics, sports, arts and community involvement.
The list is just a sample of outstanding students in the school district selected by their school during the 2015/16 school year – there are many others who were equally deserving of recognition for their exemplary achievements both inside and outside the classroom.
Every Tuesday throughout the school year, SD42 will profile a student selected as one of the 2016 Leaders of Tomorrow.
