During the 2015/16 school year, Amelia Clutchey was a Grade 6 French Immersion student at Eric Langton Elementary. Amelia is a resilient, and joyful student who always demonstrates compassion for others throughout our school community.
In spite of challenges this year, she has maintained a positive outlook, and is a reliable student leader, always willing to help out in any capacity. Amelia can always be seen with a smile on her face as she helps as an office monitor, sings in the choir, assists with fundraising activities, and never allows setbacks to prevent her from succeeding.
Amelia is an engaged student who readily shares ideas and participates in class discussions on virtually any topic. She is able to take on the role of leader when working on group projects in class.
Amelia demonstrated caring for others that year when, as part of a district class project, she encouraged students in her Grade 6/7 class (and her teacher!) to purchase cookies (each in the shape of a Canadian Maple Leaf) in support of Syrian families who were newcomers to Maple Ridge. Amelia was more than happy to spend time at lunch to help make decorations for the school-wide production of Alice in Wonderland at Eric Langton Elementary School.
Amelia has been in the French Immersion Program since kindergarten and is appreciated because of her quiet, caring nature, leadership qualities and dedication to making a difference at Eric Langton. Amelia is undoubtedly a Leader of Tomorrow!
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.
