During the 2016-17 school year, Chelsey was a Grade 1 at Harry Hooge Elementary. She is an exceptional student. At such a young age, Chelsey has an understanding and compassion for others (at home and afar). At six years old, she joined the Knights for Change club, a school initiative that fundraises for medical supplies for Haiti.
She is dedicated and regularly attends meetings (without prompting), participates in fundraisers and shares the information she learns with her class. During class time, Chelsey is often seen helping other students learn new academic, social (sharing/kindness) and artistic (cheer and dance) skills. Chelsey is a well-liked, positive, hard-working student who is already impacting the world around her.
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 2016/17 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 2017 Leaders of Tomorrow.
