For the 2016-17 school year, Webster’s Corners is pleased to present four remarkable individuals for this year’s Leaders of Tomorrow. Angelina Bird, Asher Dees, Carolina Rivero, and Cynthia Sabu have made great contributions to our school community this past year by volunteering their time with our P.E.A.K. Program.
This program aims to build a sense of community and connectedness for our students with the hopes that they carry the kindness and compassion with them into their daily lives. These amazing youths have embraced this opportunity by helping lead our P.E.A.K. council (a group consisting of student leaders in our school, from Grades 4-7) and by volunteering their time in a variety of ways. Their volunteer activities have included: helping to create care packages for those in need at Christmas time, fundraising for the Heart & Stroke Foundation, as well as for our school read-a-thon, and being an integral part of the team that presented care packages for animals at the SPCA.
Leading by example, these fine students continue to be role models for their peers. Whether it is by assisting new/younger students to find their way around the school; encouraging and leading peers in fitness activities; volunteering for classroom monitoring at lunch; helping out in the library; or their consistently excellent effort on classroom assignments, these students set the bar for leadership, altruism and academic excellence at Webster’s Corners.
Mr. Beyer, who considers himself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach all four of these individuals this year, said this: “I know that they have influenced my life and have also created a ‘growth-mindset’ environment for their classmates and the entire school. Angelina, Asher, Carolina, and Cynthia exemplify the qualities toward which we strive with our P.E.A.K. program and they are thriving in their Grade 4/5 year. We are so very proud here at Webster’s Corners to call these ‘Wildcats’ our very own!”
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.
